"Red Hat, Inc. (NASDAQ:RHAT) today announced that Amerada Hess
(NYSE:AHC) has chosen Red Hat Linux to run a supercomputing cluster
in its Exploration Department. The cluster of 128 workstations
running on the Red Hat Linux operating system replaces a leased
supercomputer--and saves Amerada Hess more than $2 million.
"Amerada Hess' Exploration Department uses 3-D modeling to
find geologic structures in hard-to-reach offshore areas that might
have oil or gas. The cluster of Linux workstations performs
mathematical functions for these mission-critical exploration
activities. The Red Hat Linux operating system was an
attractive option due to its remote administration capabilities and
the freedom to modify the cluster as needed with complete access to
the source code."
"Amerada Hess also uses the Red Hat operating system on
pre-configured Dell servers for 2-D Geophysical Modeling, IBM 3590
Tape Access, Web, NFS and Database applications. The company plans
to continue using Red Hat systems as they purchase new servers and
