"Linuxcare Certifies 3ware, Ecrix Storage Components in Real-World Customer Environments."

"Linuxcare, Inc., a leader in providing comprehensive professional services and solutions for Linux and open-source technologies, unveiled today a suite of tiered testing services for enterprise Linux deployments. Aimed toward original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), independent hardware and software vendors (IHVs and ISVs), Linuxcare Labs Enterprise Services provides rigorous and comprehensive product-based testing and certification, so that vendors can confidently and quickly deliver optimized products to their end customers. Through its new services, Linuxcare Labs has tested and certified 3ware Inc.'s Escalade 6800 ATA Raid Controller and Ecrix Corp.'s VXA-1 tape drive in enterprise Linux environments."

"In today's unforgiving market, a company's bottom line increasingly depends on being able to launch a product or solution faster than the competition. Many OEMs, IHVs and ISVs lack Linux or open-source knowledge and expertise, nor do they have the time or the staff to thoroughly test a Linux solution and guarantee compatibility with other Linux products. These companies can turn to Linuxcare to provide an independent certification and methodology for Linux deployment. Linuxcare Labs applies a real-world, working knowledge of Linux, approaching testing and certification from the customer perspective. In addition, Linuxcare's position as a services firm allows it to provide its testing services independent of any single Linux distribution."
