turbolinux  October 26, 1999 - TurboLinux Inc. debuted its anticipated TurboCluster Server, starting at $995 for two-node clusters. The product will scale to cluster 30 Intel-based servers. To buoy the product, the San Francisco-based company will also announce a number of partners, including the Santa Cruz Operation and Compaq Computer Corp. SCO will provide consulting services for TurboLinux, with an emphasis on consulting for TurboCluster customers, officials of both companies said. A similar services and support

Cobalt Releases Linux "Clustering" Software


Cobalt Networks, Inc. becomes the latest vendor to jump on the Linux-cluster bandwagon, but does the software they’re touting really qualify as a cluster?

turbolinux  is hardly a world-beater. TurboLinux already has a cluster solution (Ref. TurboLinux Clusters - One More Step Taken ) for approximately the same price as Cobalt's (excluding Cobalt's special promo). The difference is TurboCluster has a version that can handle 25 or more nodes, vs. two for StaQware. StaQware does not load-balance, which we always thought was an intrinsic part of clustering. In addition, the failover requires from one to 10 minutes for the backup system to spin up the disk, etc. Maybe Read More

Dell to Factory-Install Red Hat Linux on Servers


Red Hat, Inc., and Dell Computer Corporation today extended their strategic alliance, with Dell committing to factory-install Red Hat Linux on all future and currently shipping Dell« PowerEdge« server models.

turbolinux  remaining vendors (Corel, Caldera, TurboLinux, et al.) may find it difficult to make a compelling business argument for Dell to FIS their product(s). User Recommendations This announcement will give fence-sitting users a greater feeling of security regarding Linux's acceptance by the major PC/server manufacturers. In addition, Dell's market share strength will help customers consider a move to Linux which hitherto might have been unthinkable. There are two issues which recommend against buying one of Read More

IA-64 Linux From Red Hat


Red Hat announces the availability of the source code for IA-64 platforms, the first of which will be Intel’s “Itanium” processor, due later this year.

turbolinux  Caldera, CERN, SuSE, SGI, TurboLinux and VA Linux. The full release of Red Hat's offering will coincide with the IA-64 hardware availability from Intel. Market Impact Although Microsoft's 64-bit version of NT will probably be customer-ready before Red Hat's version, we expect the lag time on the Red Hat version to be less than a year - probably nine months. The key will be how many 64-bit applications will be available for Red Hat on Itanium. We suspect that Windows has a larger lead in that arena, Read More

Intel Invests in eSoft - "Lintel" Continues to Grow


Intel has invested in eSoft, a maker of Linux-based servers for small businesses, the chip giant's fourth Linux investment. Intel will help the company develop software for Linux servers designed to be used on the Internet.

turbolinux  go public, and in TurboLinux, another Linux seller whose strategy is to add proprietary software on top of the operating system. Market Impact Coupled with Intel's recent decision to make Red Hat Linux available on their servers (See TEC News Analysis article: Intel Throws its 'Red Hat' into Linux Ring , November 3rd, 1999), as well as their investments in VA Linux and TurboLinux, this continues a significant push by Intel to develop a Lintel presence. Linux already ships on approximately 15% of the Read More

IBM Loads Linux on Mainframes


IBM has announced that it will now provide Linux support and services for its largest machines, the S/390 Series of mainframes/servers.

turbolinux  the companies SuSE and TurboLinux. In addition, IBM Global Services will offer complete Linux for S/390 services and support. IBM is also making available key middleware. A major advantage of Linux for S/390 is the access that mainframe users will have to the applications being written for Linux, including hundreds of open source applications already available on the Internet. In addition, major software developers such as BMC and Software AG are supporting the effort with applications. Computer Read More

IBM Jumps on the Linux Bandwagon with Both Feet, Sort Of


IBM is refocusing its corporate-wide Internet software efforts around Linux, creating a new Linux Group within the Enterprise Server Division.

turbolinux  (Caldera, Red Hat, SuSE, TurboLinux) indicates Linux has become strategic, as opposed to a point solution . Porting applications to Linux is obviously a big step. Linux is not presently a standard option on Netfinity servers, but we expect IBM to change that status within 6-9 months. Once that happens, they will return to a position of being able to offer a computer for all environments - Windows, Unix, Linux, AS/400 - except Solaris. User Recommendations We are disappointed that the announcement did Read More

GNOME Will Try to Buff Up Linux


In its fight to catch up to Windows for desktop mindshare and market share, Linux has received a boost from the Gnome Foundation and a number of key systems manufacturers.

As a result, this initiative will unify many variations of Unix under a single user environment. It creates a cost-effective framework based on open standards and open source that will enable developers to write solutions for many different platforms, while competing on implementations. Based on StarOffice, an alternative competitive office productivity suite available on Read More

Does Microsoft Have Something Against 64-Bit Processors?


More cracks appear in the Wintel duolith, as Linux appears to be the first OS “ready for prime time” on Intel’s 64-bit “Itanium” processor. Despite Microsoft’s statements to the contrary, Linux may also be the only 64-bit OS on Itanium for awhile.

turbolinux   Red Hat, SGI, SuSE, TurboLinux and VA Linux--released its first beta of a version of Linux optimized for Itanium. This week at the Intel Developers Forum, IBM announced that the Project Monterey team (IBM, the Santa Cruz Operation and Intel) will have an alpha version of Monterey ready to deliver to developers on Feb. 29. Major operating systems typically go through at least a year of rigorous beta testing before they are released commercially. Given this timetable, it's looking increasingly doubtful Read More
