"Trying to capitalize on what it sees as a growing trend among both small and large companies, IBM on Monday will unwrap its first set of prepackaged Linux clusters for use on its PC-based line of Netfinity servers."

"The IBM Solution Series for Linux Clusters are best-suited for those companies carrying out scientific or technical research as well as for those dot-coms that may need to rapidly scale their systems to meet unexpected business demand, company officials said.

"IBM officials said the new clusters, which are available in configurations of 8, 16, 32, and 64 nodes, will support versions of Linux from Caldera Systms, Red Hat, SuSE, and TurboLinux."
