"IBM today announced a series of major Linux initiatives
aimed at dramatically speeding the ability of customers and key
European independent software vendors (ISV's) to transition their
applications and systems to an industrial strength Linux operating
environment. To accomplish this, IBM will invest more than
$200 million in a series of Linux initiatives in Europe
over the next four years. These investments will include
Linux development centers across Europe, alliances with
Linux-focused business partners, along with the rapid deployment of
about 600 specialized Linux consultants, hardware and software
specialists, and services professionals."
"As a key part of this initiative, IBM announced that it has
opened a series of European development centers to help ISV's
transition their applications to an industrial strength Linux
environment. These centers are located in Paris and Montpellier in
France; Greenock and Hursley in the UK; Boeblingen in Germany;
Warsaw in Poland; and Budapest in Hungary. IBM will provide
software and server IT specialists as well as Linux-ready servers,
storage systems and middleware, including Websphere, Lotus Domino,
and DB2. The centers will support application development on all
IBM servers from IBM Netfinity servers to AS/400, RS/6000 up to IBM
S/390 highspeed servers. The centers will be open to all ISV's,
from enterprise application leaders to start-ups working on
software for embedded technology in wireless devices."
"Intel fully supports IBM's initiative of working on
applications that run on Linux to create the best e-business
environment on Intel's platforms. We believe Linux OS will play an
important role in the evolution of e-Business. Intel will implement
this work in Intel's own Solution Centers. Intel believes it is
important to share the learnings gained on Linux OS and the
applications in the various Solution Centers", said Sharad Gandhi,
Director Internet Solutions Group, Intel EMEA."
