"IBM has replaced Sun Microsystems at Telia, a Scandanavian telecommunications customer that will use Big Blue's mainframe running Linux instead of 70 Sun servers."
"IBM has been pushing Linux across its four server product lines, the most expensive of which is the mainframe zSeries, formerly known as the S/390 line. Using "partitioning" software, a mainframe can be split into several independent computers that share the same hardware. IBM and others have demonstrated running tens of thousands of Linux computers on a single mainframe."
"At Telia, a G6 mainframe with more than 1,500 virtual Linux servers will replace 70 existing Sun Unix servers, IBM plans to announce Thursday. The Linux servers will host Telia business customers' Web sites."
