"IBM today introduced the industry's first pre-packaged Linux clusters, providing customers a quick and easy way to implement Linux solutions for e-business. The IBM eServer Cluster integrates best-of-breed components into a single, easy-to-order and -deploy package.

Combining IBM eServer xSeries Intel processor-based servers with high-performance cluster management software derived from IBM's UNIX systems, the IBM eServer Cluster can be shipped with as few as four servers and can grow to encompass massive Linux systems powerful enough to meet any customer need. IBM is already building Linux clusters with more than 1,000 nodes.

The IBM eServer Cluster has been tested to ensure interoperability and maximum performance in e-commerce environments such as Web infrastructure and collaboration/email. IBM offers comprehensive services and support for the clusters, including installation and ongoing maintenance."
