Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers


"TurboLinux, Inc., the high-performance Linux company, announced today that Sacramento State's computer science department, one of the largest CS departments in the California State University system, has standardized on a TurboLinux Server and IBM xSeries platform to teach its upper division systems programming class to 130 students."

"All of the course work conducted in the computer science class is uploaded onto the IBM xSeries Server running TurboLinux Server. The students access a password-protected Web page on the school's intranet, download assignments and then send back the work via e-mail. Once the work is graded, each student's results are available for review on the site, stored in a database located on a xSeries server running TurboLinux."

"Students in the "Introduction to Systems Programming" class conduct large software downloads from the xSeries running TurboLinux for their assignments. Despite the added stress and large downloads on the system, the server's performance has never degraded."
