"Multiple Server Operating Systems Extends SGI's Technical
Strengths and Market Opportunities".
"No single operating system can meet the diverse needs of all
customers, since not all customers are exactly alike. That's why
SGI is committed to providing its server customers with the
industry's broadest range of system sizes and market-focused
solutions, all incorporating robust, industry-standard and
thoroughly tested applications that address their particular
needs," said John R. "Beau" Vrolyk, senior vice president..."
"SGI plans to introduce Intel® IA-32 based servers that will
support both Linux and Windows NT, and plans to leverage its
leadership and experience in scalable ccNUMA MIPS® servers to
become a leading provider of scalable IA-32 and IA-64 servers. SGI
engineers are currently contributing expertise and technologies to
the Linux and open source communities in such areas as system
scalability, high bandwidth I/O, high-performance file systems and
compilers. Recently, the company introduced support of SambaTM 2.0
for its OriginTM server line and released GLX and OpenVaultTM
source code into the open source community and will continue to
contribute key technologies. The company expects these capabilities
will meet the critical requirements of Linux users in market
segments targeted by SGI with its Intel-based servers."
