"IBM announced on 22 November that CSK Network Systems Corp., or CSK-Net, will use an IBM S/390 server running TurboLinux for its data centre's Web server platform. CSK-Net is the first company in Japan to run a Linux application on a mainframe."

"The company, which plans to increase its data centre operations, chose to use Linux because of its reliability and low cost. Previously, CSK-Net's ASP services such as Web applications, e-mail and electronic form systems ran on multiple servers. The S/390 will provide a reduced cost of ownership by consolidating mission-critical processes together with UNIX and Linux applications all on one platform."
