  • Arvind began his career in 1983 as an ECL chip designer for Amdahl Corporation, a mainframe computer designer and manufacturer while working on the 5870 Mainframe for nearly 6 years. In 1988 he joined Super Mini Computers at Elxsi Corp, designing boards with off the shelf chips. Realizing the opportunity and huge gap in the PC market, Arvind founded ASA Computers Inc. Over a period of 25 years, ASA transformed from a PC company exporting 1000s of PCs worldwide to an x86 Server company that sold the first Intel-based BSDI Server, then becoming the first partner of Red Hat Inc. In 2010, Chris Terry (former Rackable Systems) assisted Arvind in creating RackLive, a full Systems division of ASA. Arvind holds a BSEE and MSEE from Purdue University and enjoys coding and business incubation during his spare time.

  • Chris began his early career as a serial entrepreneur and general manager of several transportation-related businesses. In 1996, Chris transitioned his effort towards the startup, Rackable Systems, joining the 3 founders in ramping the Business Development efforts as pioneers of x86 Data Center products. After successful growth funding in 2002, Chris and Rackable steadily grew the business though its IPO in 2006 and later acquisition of SGI in 2008. Chris exited Rackable, Inc. in 2010 with a vision to repeat a similar strategy here at Racklive.
