TurboCluster Server TM Offers First Software-Based Web Server Clustering for Linux

TurboLinux... today announced the first Linux clustering application availability and scalability solution for web servers on Intel and Alpha architecture platforms. TurboCluster Server... is yet another milestone in making Linux an 'enterprise-ready' operating system that can run mission-critical web applications for corporations. For Net businesses... TurboCluster Server offers for the first time a low-cost alternative to proprietary and more expensive Microsoft NT and UNIX cluster solutions."

" 'Scalability has been one of the shortcomings of Linux which has slowed its adoption in the commercial market,' said Dan Kusnetzky, International Data Corporation's Program Director for operating environments research. 'Clustering software going beyond that used to build parallel computing configurations is needed. TurboLinux is among the first Linux vendors to address this critical niche in the marketplace.' "

"Unlike Beowulf clustering systems that are designed for highly specialized scientific computing applications, TurboCluster Server delivers clustering technology for Linux servers running mission-critical web applications in the enterprise. It provides automated control and distribution of traffic to ensure dependable, responsive TCP/IP-based services. TurboCluster is currently in beta at over 200 reference sites..."
