"At the National Center for Macromolecular Imaging at Baylor
College of Medicine, scientists are reconstructing molecular
configurations of viruses and developing 3-D models of their
structures. Instead of using traditional supercomputers that can
cost millions of dollars, Baylor, located in Houston, is using
high-end Linux-based server clusters that are much less expensive,
yet just as effective. While Linux-based servers are most often
used to serve up Web pages, the open source operating system is
also making inroads on the high-end."
"...Linux is being tailored to fill many needs in the
enterprise and shouldn't be counted out when you're looking for a
one-size-fits-all operating system capable of handling multiple
enterprise applications, observers say. According to IDC, a

should continue to be the fastest-growing operating system through
"Linux NetworX isn't the only company making hay on Linux
clustering and its ability to function well as a server operating
system. ... Mission Critical Linux offers a high-availability
cluster product called Convolo Cluster. ... TurboLinux also has a
clustering product called TurboCluster... And earlier this month,
VA Linux Systems announced VACM 2.0, the latest release of its VA
Cluster Manager software."
