Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"Poker.com...announces the release of the LINUX version of its gaming software, a complete suite of JAVA-based Internet games. This deployment on the LINUX platform is in addition to our current offering on the Windows NT platform. Adhering to the open systems engineering philosophy has enabled our complete set of games to operate on configured servers that are utilizing the LINUX operating system. Using the LINUX operating system for our JAVA based non-downloadable games allows Poker.com to offer a high performance, stable and cost effective infrastructure to our licensees and to end-users of the games."

"LINUX has a strong presence among Internet Service Providers (ISPs), institutions of higher education, and Web developers. LINUX is the basis for many scalable and performance oriented applications and is provided as an alternative to Microsoft Windows NT."

"Our software Licensees will have a choice of either Windows NT or LINUX deployment. CyberBanx and CyberBoss, the leading-edge e-commerce and administration components, will be ready for deployment on the LINUX platform by the second quarter of 2000."
