Come See the Softer Side of Linux?


Three hardware manufacturers, trying to upgrade the scalability and manageability of Linux servers, announced major Linux server initiatives at LinuxWorld in New York.

high performance cluster computing  coupled cluster, with a high-speed interconnect for its nodes. I-Node is designed to run as a loosely coupled set of servers in a business environment, said Mike Tar, senior product manager. One I-Node acts as the primary scheduler for a cluster on an Internet Protocol network. It monitors activities on other nodes and routes traffic to them. In the event of a node failure, it reroutes work in progress to other nodes. The goal, Ockman said, was to build the most reliable Linux system. Market Impact The Read More
