Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Motorola is to ship a high availability version of Linux aimed
at carrier grade networking from May. The company's HA Linux will
be available on Motorola Intel and PowerPC hardware, and promises
99.999 per cent (five nines) availability."
"It runs on Motorola's CPX8000 family of platforms. These
currently use the Lynx OS, but Motorola sees Linux as the
'platform of choice' for new telecommunications
"...by going for Linux, Motorola may be on to a winner at last.
It doesn't have OS baggage the way Sun does, so has the opportunity
to push high spec Linux servers while Sun continues to circle round
the question, apparently facing in several directions at once."
