Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"The software giant's move builds on a 2-year-old agreement with
privately held Turbolinux, which enjoys backing from IBM, Compaq,
Intel, Dell, and other high-tech heavyweights. Among the offerings
to be bundled by summer are IBM's WebSphere servers, Small Business
Suite for Linux, and DB2 Universal Database."
"Our customers are looking for solutions on Linux, and IBM is a
leader in delivering complete software offerings that meet the
needs of business units across an enterprise, from data centers and
application hosting to wireless access and mainframe computing,"
says T. Paul Thomas, Turbolinux president and CEO."
"Combining Turbolinux products with the breadth of software from
IBM, Lotus, and Tivoli [both IBM subsidiaries] gives customers more
choice and helps them deploy solutions faster with global
availability and support," says Dick Sullivan, IBM Software's vice
president for solutions and integration marketing."
