IBM Ships 10,000th Storage Virtualization Engine

,----[ Quote ]
| SVC 4.2.1 support will be provided for new operating environments with VMware 
| ESX Server: Red Hat and SUSE Linux, and Novell Netware. 


IBM Virtualization Powers Oracle Rollout at Amway Corporation

,----[ Quote ]
| The servers use AIX, IBM's UNIX-based operating system, and also support 
| thousands of Linux-based applications. Migration services enable customers to 
| quickly and easily convert from competing platforms -- such as Sun 
| Microsystems and Hewlett-Packard -- to IBM hardware.   



IBM Launches First Open Beta Program for Industry-Leading UNIX Operating System

,----[ Quote ]
| And lastly, using IBM Advanced POWER Virtualization (APV), customers
| can run Linux applications natively in one or more logical partitions
| running SUSE Linux Enterprise or Red Hat Enterprise Linux integrated
| with AIX applications on the same physical System p server.


IBM Previews Virtualization Management Tool for Power-Based Boxes

,----[ Quote ]
| ...Virtual Availability Manager, within the Systems Director 
| Virtualization Manager tool will allow customers who deploy a Xen 
| hypervisor on their Linux-on-X64 servers to create what IBM is 
| calling a "high availability farm" that can be used to rehost 
| virtual machine partitions that are taken out by crashes.


Storix Integrates Full-system Recovery with IBM Tivoli® Storage Manager

,----[ Quote ]
| San Diego based, Storix, Inc. launched today the first solution to offer 
| flexible bare-metal recovery and centralized system backup management for TSM 
| on Linux and AIX clients (nodes) and servers.  


Looking for Huge Performance Gains? Virtualize With Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5

,----[ Quote ]
| Not many people think of virtualization as a way to make applications run 
| faster. In fact, the general assumption is that things are likely to be a 
| little slower, hopefully not too much, but that the other advantages easily 
| outweight the performance drop.   


IBM Focusing on i5 Account Sales, Not i5 Sales

,----[ Quote ]
| Shearer said that over 1,300 OS/400 applications have been
| modernized (meaning ported to i5/OS and given new Web front
| ends) and over 2,000 applications have moved over from AIX
| and Linux on X86 as part of an application modernization
| initiative that he started more than two years ago.


IBM Extends Open Source Virtualization Solutions

,----[ Quote ]
| Building upon the company's commitment to providing clients open
| solutions based on Linux and virtualization technologies, IBM
| announced its extensive portfolio of middleware and systems
| platforms will support Novell's new SUSE Linux Enterprise 10
| offerings. The new SUSE Linux Enterprise offerings incorporate
| the open source Xen virtualization software to help businesses
| increase server utilization and lower management costs.


IBM Adds POWER Virtualization to SOA Strategy

,----[ Quote ]
| IBM's Advanced POWER Virtualization technology for an SOA allows a
| single server to be divided into multiple partitions which can
| each run different operating systems such as UNIX and Linux
| and multiple applications.


Virtualization and the POWER5 Architecture

,----[ Quote ]
| Unlike the other RISC-based hardware vendors (Sun and HP), IBM has
| fully implemented most of the features of its most powerful architecture
| into its Linux support. This is largely due to the recent developments
| of the Linux 2.6 kernel, which has brought Linux into the forefront. IBM
| added its own code to the SUSE and Red Hat kernels to provide support to
| the POWER5.
