"Microsoft, Sun Microsystems and other operating system vendors will try to impress the high-powered financial services industry this week with top-of-the-line offerings."

"The Linux vendors aren't conceding the high-end space to the big boys. Indeed, TurboLinux and SuSE have both fielded products in the Linux clustering space. TurboLinux has said it is interested in challenging not just mainframe operating systems, but supercomputer systems as well. At the same time, The Beowulf Project, a NASA research project that currently is hosted by Scyld Computing Corp., is tackling the high-end Linux clustering challenge."

"Next week, SteelEye Technology will unveil a Linux port of LifeKeeper, the NCR clustering failover product that SteelEye acquired late last year. SteelEye officials claim LifeKeeper for Linux will help make Linux synonymous with high availability and reliability, as it will bring more than just load balancing support to the operating system. And SteelEye is in the midst of porting other former NCR high-end applications, such as software RAID and disaster recovery, to Linux as well."
