Now onto a subject after my own heart... Linux, and Linux running on serious hardware. IBM has expanded its range of servers, as we were previously discussing
, and that includes servers running with a Linux OS
. The entry level Unix (AIX 5L V5.3) or Linux eServer p5 510 is designed to offer virtualisation capabilities for small and medium businesses. Available as one-way to two-way rack-mount systems, the servers support some cool IBM technologies such as the IBM virtualization engine technology and micro-partitioning, which allows users of the servers to run Unix and Linux applications at the same time.
"Never before has IBM offered a eServer p5 system to the Unix marketplace at a starting price under $4,000."
