"Sun Microsystems Inc., champion of its own Solaris operating system, is taking a significant step toward embracing open-source Linux."

"The Palo Alto, Calif., company has teamed with Linuxcare Inc., of San Francisco, to develop a driver that enables Sun's StorEdge T3 enterprise storage devices to work with Intel Corp. servers running Linux."

"The failover driver-to be distributed free on Linuxcare's Web site-also lets IT managers hook up two Stor Edge devices for redundant data protection."

"In the [Linux] storage space, this is the first presentation of a completely redundant storage subsystem," said Dave Sifry, Linuxcare's co-founder and chief technology officer. "It brings an entirely new class of high availability to the Linux community."
