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

"Donovan Systems, the premier developer of 64-bit Linux systems, has moved into new, larger premises to support its expansion in a growing market for 64-bit Linux technology. The new premises will increase the company's production capacity to more than 40,000 high performance servers a year, and provide technical support and training facilities, including Linux certification courses. It will also accommodate the rapid increase in Donovan's staff, which doubled to 80 people in the past six months."

"The move to larger premises is a reflection of how quickly Donovan has grown as a company and our confidence in future growth," said Gary Foong, founder and CEO of Donovan Systems. "This year, we expect to grow more than 200 per cent in revenue and over the next two years we are targeting revenues in excess of $100 million," said Mr Foong."

"Since early 1999, Donovan has notched up a number of world technology firsts, including the production of the world's first 64-bit UltraSPARC-driven Linux server. Other achievements include the release of the first 64-bit Linux server costing less than US$2,000 early this year, and the unveiling of Chinese Penguin64, the 64-bit Chinese Linux operating system developed jointly by Donovan and the Institute of Software, Chinese Academy of Sciences, in Beijing in June."
