"Seeking to spur corporate interest in Linux-based servers among small businesses and independent software developers (ISVs), IBM today announced a new test-drive program that allows users to login Linux servers across the Internet.

The Linux Test Drive for eServer iSeries features a "virtual Linux server" to help independent software vendors and the open source community write and port their applications to Linux on iSeries servers. The program makes use of IBM's partitioning technology, which allows a single physical server to be divided into dozens of virtual servers that can be accessed remotely by software developers around the world. A single iSeries server can support up to 31 partitions running Linux, according to IBM."
