Enterprise Linux Today: Turbolinux Speeds Enterprise Acceptance of Linux

Turbolinux, Inc. has announced that Turbolinux 7 Server, the
first Linux distribution to conform to Li18NUX internationalization
standards, will extend its support for enterprise computing by
implementing the recommendations of the Enterprise Linux Alliance.
Alliance members IBM, Fujitsu Limited, Hitachi Limited, and NEC
Corp. joined together in May 2001 to collaborate on enterprise
Linux development by expanding the scalability, reliability, and
availability of the platform. The group’s most recent effort has
centered on the Linux Kernel Crash Dump (LKCD). The LKCD is focused
on improving the reliability of memory dump capabilities and the
efficiency of memory analysis required for analyzing OS failures.
Turbolinux 7 Sever has already implemented the alliance’s LKCD
recommendations. (Editors: see “Turbolinux 7 Server, First-Ever
Linux Distribution to Conform to Internationalization Standard
Specifications,” November 7, 2001 and “Tech Industry Leaders Join
Forces In An Open Consortium To Support Next-Generation Computing,”

Turbolinux works closely with several industry-wide groups
including the LI18NUX, LSB, and the Atlas consortium toward the
common goal of expanding Linux acceptance and use within the

“This is just further proof of Turbolinux’s on-going commitment
to supporting enterprise customers with their adoption of Linux for
mission-critical operations,” said Ly-Huong Pham, CEO of
Turbolinux. “At Turbolinux, we envision a future where Linux is
pervasive in the enterprise. The stability of Linux, running on
mainframes or servers, delivers the reliability, availability, and
scalability necessary for everything from back-end databases, to
supercomputing and Internet edge servers.”

Enterprise Features Help Linux Win Converts

Turbolinux 7 Server supports several enterprise features
including Large File Support (LFS) for files up to four terabytes
in size. Such support is critical for archival storage and
extremely large data sets. The popularity of Linux for animation
production and for scientific clustering combined with the
ever-increasing performance of x86 hardware underscores the need
for LFS and LKCD. In addition, Turbolinux 7 Server supports the
Logical Volume Manager (LVM), which provides flexible disk volume
management. LVM allows customers to manage storage more simply by
seamlessly combining multiple disk drives and partitions into easy
to manage storage.
