That's incorrect. Lenovo is a Chinese PC company that has recently merged with IBM's pc unit.The Smoking Man said:Lenovo has just been sold to China and they now supply blade systems to the US DOD for missile tracking. (http://news.com.com/Lenovo+links+wi...3-5779732.html?part=rss&tag=5779732&subj=news)
The decision of NORAD to go with the blade servers started in 2001 and installation is completed. The units in place have nothing to do with China. The units were purchased from ClearCube Technology, not Lenovo.
I'm sure the merger with Lenovo is being discussed as to whether Norad will purchase any additional servers from them.
