InfoWorld: Linux clustering takes to LinuxWorld stage

High-end linux clustering comes of age this week with the launch of 32- and 64-bit platforms at LinuxWorld in San Francisco.

Although the promise of industrial-strength Linux clustering has been a slow train coming, industry observers believe this week’s announcements will lend much-needed corporate credibility to the architecture.

IBM will unveil its 64-bit DB2 Integrated Cluster Environment for Linux, which scales from two nodes to 1,000 nodes and is designed to take advantage of AMD’s 64-bit Opteron processor. Accompanied by the Opteron-based IBM eServer 325, the software will run both 32- and 64-bit applications to ease the transition to 64-bit computing.
