by Dwight Johnson
According to the German news service, Heise.de, SuSE is expanding its products
with a line of Linux cluster computer systems named SALT (SuSE
Advanced Linux Technology) which will be introduced at CeBIT in
Hannover March 18-24.
Products of the SALT line will be custom built as complete
solutions to serve the requirements of higher education
institutions and industrial research and development divisions.
According to Richard Jelinek of SuSE, the software cluster
technology is open-sourced and based on the same techniques and
tools as Beowulf but adapted to the SuSE distribution node
management and extended with some more applications.
Jelinek went on to tell Linux Today that SuSE’s Linux
distribution for Alpha (the AXP-distribution) will also be
introduced at CeBIT. This will be a product of its own. When this
distribution is stable, AXP-Clusters will be added to SuSE’s
SuSE Linux for the Alpha processor will be released soon after
