[News] Where Linux Pioneers, Sun and Cisco Follow

Hash: SHA1

Sun, Cisco Vets Join Linux-Based Networking Play

,----[ Quote ]
| Founded in 2004 and formerly known as Arastra, Arista shipped its first 
| product releases in late 2007. The core of its lineup is its 7100 platform, 
| which is a 10 Gigabit Ethernet switching platform that has a Linux-based 
| operating system at its core, dubbed Arista EOS.   
| The goal with EOS is to create a highly scalable platform that is 
| specifically tailored for the needs of cloud computing in the datacenter, 
| Karam said. EOS is based on a Red Hat Fedora Linux core that Arista said has 
| been modified and hardened.   
| Karam noted that Arista has no formal business relationship with Red Hat or 
| with its Fedora Linux community -- rather, Arista is just using Fedora under 
| the terms of its open source license.   



NYSE Euronext banks on Red Hat

,----[ Quote ]
| If anyone out there persists in believing that Linux isn't ready for serious
| prime time, NYSE Euronext's dependence on Red Hat should finally lay that
| silly notion to rest. As announced, the New York Stock Exchange Euronext
| dumped its proprietary UNIX heritage (AIX, HP UX, Solaris) for the freedom,
| flexibility, and performance of Linux.


Smack, crack, hack and track any network with Linux (not Windows)

,----[ Quote ]
| The very technology underpinning the Internet – TCP/IP – came to life in the
| world of UNIX. It's no surprise that the best network "auditing" (ie
| snooping!) tools are to be found on Linux, and not that Johnny-come-lately,
| Windows. Here is the reason why Windows is crippled by comparison.


Software pros settle scores the tech way

| Some companies develop their own software on open source platforms like
| Linux,” says Ashwin, a network security and electronic data forensic  
| professional.  



Will Enterprise Open Source Scale the Walled Gardens of the Cellular Network

,----[ Quote ]
| Lately, I've been researching the feasibility of running Linux on any of the
| several excellent smartphone platforms out there. There's the long running
| Treos 650/680/700 that have a lot of units in service and surprisingly
| consistent internal technology with which to focus an open OS development
| team on. Developer interest in the platform seems to be growing (link to
| shadowmite and hack'n dev).    
| [...]
| All of this is a leap in level of service and an order of magnitude drop in
| cost. Are the cellular providers going to like it? No. Can they stop it? Yes.
| They can lock their phones from being taken over by the open source
| community. Will they succeed? I don't know but the question is "what doesn't
| run Linux these days?"
