"IBM has revealed further steps in its commitment to Linux, parts of which may make AIX users a little uneasy."

"Last week, the company announced that it's delivering a 256-node Linux cluster to the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque. While discussing the deal with Computerworld, Dave Turek, IBM's vice president of deep computing, said it would be the precursor to a packaged Linux cluster for commercial customers later this year."

"IBM's Global Services division has already rolled out Linux clusters at several unnamed commercial customers' sites, said Turek. The systems will contain clustering technology ported from the RS/6000 SP platform and will run a range of applications. Those will include databases, data warehouses and electronic-business applications."
