"IBM has taken yet another huge step in its journey to accommodate public demand for all things Linux, and once again, the community will likely share in the advancement."

"Since IBM began to publicly support Linux, many of our customers have started showing an interest in Linux," says Ben Rufanello, author of the recently released white paper Logical Volume Management System (LVMS) and member of IBM's Linux Technology Center. "We have received many requests from our customers asking us to enhance certain areas of Linux (logical volume management in particular) in order to make Linux a more acceptable platform for more IT operations."

"Rufanello says that public demand for Linux has pushed IBM into strategy development. "Furthermore, we have been asked to provide a migration path from existing platforms (both IBM and non-IBM) to Linux. IBM has been moving to satisfy these requests by contributing developers and technology to the Linux Community."
