BW: Linux With An [SGI] Iris [For High Availability Clustering]

Feb 29, 2000, 17:10 (0 Talkback[s])

"SGI and Linux software provider SuSE Linux have announced a joint engineering project to bring Iris FailSafe, SGI's high-availability clustering software, to the Linux operating system."

"Iris FailSafe running on Linux will enable a user to link two or more servers together so that one transparently picks up the computing load should the other fail."

"An Iris FailSafe cluster running on Linux will remove any point of failure and allow applications to increase availability to the level required for mission-critical data-center operations. With input and co-operation from the Open Source Software community, SGI and SuSE expect to have software available by the second half of 2000."
