ComputerWeekly: Linux to benefit from SGI clustering

“Linux distributer SuSe is developing a high availability
version of Linux that uses the FaleSafe technology that Silicon
Graphics (SGI) has given to the open source community. Dirk
Hohndel, chief technology officer at Suse would be offering a Linux
version of FailSafe to make Linux better suited to high-end
applications.”

Linux by allowing one server to take over anothers’ tasks should it
