"First Enterprise-Class Traffic Management Solution for Linux." "Penguin Computing Inc... today announced the I-Node (for "Intelligent Node") - Modular Infrastructure for e-Business. The I-Node is the first solution to leverage x86 architecture, the Linux OS, and enterprise traffic management technology from Resonate - the leading provider of Internet Services Management (iSM) solutions to enable high availability and high performance for e-business applications. I-Node allows site architects to build a scalable and highly available Internet computing infrastructure."

"As Web sites become more transaction intensive, our customers are looking for a cost effective and reliable platform to deploy their Internet applications," said Sam Ockman, president and CEO of Penguin Computing Inc. "The I-Node is the first step in Penguin Computing's overall strategy to provide a scalable component-based computing architecture for our customers..."

"I-Node servers work together in concert and appear to clients as a single, centralized server cluster. Requests to the cluster are intelligently routed to its nodes. Should any node in the cluster fail, requests are routed around the outage and the available nodes compensate - ensuring constant availability."
