The Cobalt Qube was a server appliance product line developed by Cobalt Networks inc. (later purchased by Sun Microsystems featuring a modified Red Hat Linux operating system and a proprietary GUI for server management.
The Qube 2700 was the first product released by Cobalt Networks. Mark Orr, one of the Cobalt Networks' CEOs, came up with the cool Cobalt color. The green LED in the front was Bill Scott's idea. The 2700 was not a development version number but came from the atomic number of Cobalt, 27. The next product was called the Qube 2800 before being sold, but was eventually called the Qube 2, leaving the 2800 to designate the system type. Both the Qube 2700 and the Qube 2 used MIPS CPUs.
Under an OEM arrangement, the Qube 2 units were also produced by Gateway in the form of the Gateway Micro Server. The casing featured on these units was black instead of cobalt blue.
