"Following the announcement of the availability of IBM's DB2 Universal Database with all Linux operating system-based SGI 1000 series servers, SGI today announced that IBM's WebSphere Application Server software will be available for the new SGI 1450 Linux OS-based server. This next step in SGI's and IBM's collaboration gives IBM additional distribution of its popular database and e-business software in the Linux market and helps SGI expand its e-business offerings."

"Our ISP, medium-size and small Internet customers are looking for completely integrated e-business solutions that enable them to expand their business in what we call SGI Media Commerce -- transacting content over a vast range of networks," said Greg Estes, president and general manager, Broadband and Internet Solutions, SGI. "IBM's WebSphere combined with the SGI 1450 Linux OS-based server and IBM DB2 Universal Database gives our customers a powerful set of e-business tools."

"WebSphere and DB2 on the SGI 1450 server further expand our e-business reach into the Linux market where we're able to provide ISPs and NetGen companies a scalable and secure environment for executing and managing pervasive service offerings," said Steve Mills, general manager, IBM Software Group."
