"The joint engineering project will bring SGI's Iris FailSafe high-availability clustering software to Linux environments, company officials said here at the CeBit information technology show."

"With Iris FailSafe running on Linux, Linux users will be able to link two or more servers together so one will automatically take over if another should fail. SuSE officials said they hope the release of the clustering software will lead to more mission-critical applications becoming available for Linux."

" 'We're not abandoning (NT and Irix Unix). We can now focus on three branches of operating systems,' Redmer said. He added that SGI will release FailSafe's source code under the general public license soon after the project begins, so the Linux community can also modify the code."
