Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"No doubt about it, IBM seems determined to be the Linux company
for the enterprise."
"This week, Big Blue did its share to burnish the corporate
image of Linux, announcing the availability of DB2 Universal
Database for Linux on IBM zSeries and S/390 mainframes, two
versions of its WebSphere Applications Server for those same
systems, and a version of Extended Enterprise Edition for Linux
that works with Intel-based clusters."
"Linux, thanks to open-source advocates, has developed into a
steely competitor of Microsoft and Unix in lower-end servers, but
has yet to establish a meaningful presence at the high-end."
"Some believe this announcement and others made by IBM during
the past several months will embolden users to push Linux up to
their highest system platform and encourage those only thinking
about such a move to take the leap."
