Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Turbolinux, Inc., the leader in high-performance Linux for
Internet infrastructure solutions, today announced it is
demonstrating the power of its EnFuzion software by breaking
Microsoft NT passwords at product demonstrations during Linux
Business Expo at Comdex in Las Vegas this week."
"EnFuzion, deployed at major sites worldwide, including
global financial institutions, national laboratories,
telecommunication companies, semiconductor firms, consumer goods
and biotechnology companies, is a new technology based on
harnessing idle CPU cycles on workstations and servers in a network
to deliver supercomputing performance. Customer typically use
EnFuzion to speed up applications 100 times and more to solve
massive computational problems in fields such as risk management,
biotechnology, semiconductor research and financial modeling
without the need to buy more computers. EnFuzion runs on Linux,
Windows NT and all major Unix operating systems."
"At Comdex in Las Vegas, Turbolinux is demonstrating the power
of EnFuzion by 'cracking' five-character NT passwords in less than
a minute using an application freely available on the Internet. The
demonstration is run on a small network of computers in the
Turbolinux booth. EnFuzion can easily scale to solve much larger
computational challenges and is already deployed at customer sites
running on networks of more than 1,000 computers."
"Turbolinux does not endorse breaking passwords on Microsoft
software or any other products."
