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.BACK
