Oxide Computer Company: Initial boot sequence

Monday, December 2, 2019

Steve Tuck, Bryan Cantrill and Jessie Frazelle

We have started a computer company! If you haven’t yet, read Jess’s account of us being born in a garage and Bryan’s on the soul of our new computer company. Also, see the perspectives of some of our founding engineers: Robert Mustacchi on joining Oxide, Joshua Clulow on the need for a new machine, and Patrick Mooney on everything he sees aligning at Oxide (and in particular, on the importance of Oxide’s principles!).

If it needs to be said, starting a computer company is an ambitious endeavor; we are thrilled to have investment led by Eclipse Ventures and joined by an incredible group of institutional and angel investors. Our investors see what we see: the potential to integrate hardware and software together to bring hyperscaler-class infrastructure to everyone.

To use the machine as metaphor, Oxide is at the earliest stages of boot: the power is on, and the first instructions have been executed – but we have a long way to go before we’re fully operational!
