"Digital Factory Co., Ltd., Parent Company of Digital Factory
USA, and Compaq Computer K.K. (Japan), announced a technical
alliance regarding Digital Factory's Linux Distribution "Kondara
MNU/Linux." Digital Factory and Compaq will jointly develop
"Kondara MNU/Linux" to be optimized for the Alpha platform.
"Kondara MNU/Linux" will establish its position as a high
performance Linux distribution capable of exploiting Alpha's
blazing fast processor performance. Furthermore, by
co-developing with Compaq, a high performance and easy-to-use
cluster system on "Kondara MNU/Linux," Digital Factory will be able
to provide clustered and scalable computer systems for the hosting
market such as ISP's, ASP's as well as the High Performance
Technical Computing (HPTC) field."
"Kondara MNU/Linux" is developed concurrently on the Alpha and
Intel platforms using Compaq's IA (Intel Architecture) Proliant(R)
Server Family, which means Kondara is built to Compaq's hardware
standards. Compaq will extensively support "Kondara MNU/Linux" and
Digital Factory will expand on Compaq's technology to create Alpha
platform applications parallel to Intel's. Together, both companies
will share information and build a cooperative support system."
