"GoAhead Software, the leading provider of off-the-shelf service availability software for Internet infrastructure devices and servers, and Intel Corporation are collaborating to provide a highly available communications infrastructure platform running on Linux."

"The telecom and datacom industries are demanding a comprehensive high availability solution to accelerate the widespread deployment of reliable infrastructure applications. While many companies employ systems with features like hot swap that increase system uptime, the industry requires a complete off-the-shelf management solution that can enable 99.999% system availability. This demonstration is a big step toward that solution. The GoAhead Linux solution integrates GoAhead HighAvailability software with CompactPCI(R) platforms based on Intel Pentium(R) III processors to create a reliable, highly available system-level solution for communications infrastructure."

"We believe that the combination of Intel Architecture and the Linux operating system provides a compelling platform for today's communications applications like Voice-over IP that require high availability," said Intel's Ton Steenman, comms marketing director, Embedded Intel Architecture Division. "We are excited to be working with companies like GoAhead to ensure that off-the-shelf solutions are available to telecom and network equipment manufacturers."
