"Mission Critical Linux, Inc., the cutting-edge Linux products and services company, today announced plans to launch its high-availability Convolo Cluster solution. The Convolo Cluster is the first Linux-specific cluster solution for enterprise computing environments to offer high availability while guaranteeing data integrity - even in the face of multiple hardware and software failures. Built on Open Source Kimberlite cluster technology pioneered by Mission Critical Linux and demonstrated at this week's PC Expo 2000, Convolo Clusters adds full product qualification on leading commodity hardware platforms (API, IBM, VA Linux, Compaq) and Linux distributions including TurboLinux, VA Linux, SuSE, Caldera, Mandrake, Debian, and Red Hat, as well as comprehensive product warranty and support services."

"By leveraging Open Source technology, the Convolo Cluster can deliver to customers a level of flexibility not found in proprietary cluster systems. Optimized for use on commodity hardware, the solution is ideal for businesses seeking a cost-effective, yet exceedingly scalable and modifiable means to achieve high availability for mission-critical applications, regardless of their breadth or complexity."

"In addition to addressing true systems failures and planned shutdowns, our solution effectively combats network outages and system hangs, the two critical points of failure not effectively managed by any Linux cluster system on the market," said Moiz Kohari, President and CEO of Mission Critical Linux."
