"Trying to sustain the momentum from its red-hot initial public offering last month, VA Linux Systems on Tuesday announced plans for an online repository capable of simultaneously handling over 700 open source projects."
"The company also announced that it has locked up a deal with NetLedger, a prominent accounting ASP backed by Oracle Chairman Larry Ellison. Under the agreement, VA Linux will supply NetLedger with Linux-based servers along with a variety of integration management services to bolster the ASP's application server infrastructure, officials said.
"In a third announcement, the company said that Bob Russo, former senior executive with Synopsys and Cray Research, has been made general manager and executive vice president of worldwide field operations."
