Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"The IntelliStation, which shipped Monday on the heels of the
1.5GHz Pentium 4, delivered impressive performances in eWEEK Labs'
tests. Companies in the market for high-end workstations will find
the new IBM system very tempting. Buyers will benefit from the same
dynamic of expanding performance and contracting price that buyers
of desktop and notebook PCs have enjoyed in recent years."
"Unlike previous IntelliStation M Pro workstations, the 6849 is
not available in a dual-processor configuration. Companies that
have developed a fondness for dual-processor systems might be
"Windows 2000 came preloaded on our system, but IBM also sells
the machine with Windows NT 4.0. The system also runs Linux
distributions from Caldera Inc., Red Hat Inc., SuSE Inc. and
TurboLinux Inc., so sites that want to use Linux for software
development or applications can do so with a measure of confidence.
IBM does not preinstall Linux on the workstation."
