[News] Sun is Faking LAMP and Sidelines GNU/Linux

Hash: SHA1

There is no L in Sun’s LAMP

,----[ Quote ]
| I believe Sun has an absolute right to compete with Linux, but its misuse of 
| LAMP does it a disservice and can only serve to antagonize would-be customers 
| who do very much care that their middleware stack runs on Linux. If Sun wants 
| to market Glassfish Portfolio as an integrated LAMP stack it needs to come 
| with Linux services (even if it is just for paying customers, as is the case 
| with MySQL support).     
| Without Linux, it’s not LAMP.


Sun offers integrated Web platform

,----[ Quote ]
| The platform, called Sun GlassFish Portfolio, features open source 
| technologies that have been productized and pre-integrated. Besides the 
| application server, Sun GlassFish Portfolio also is built on open source 
| projects like the Apache Tomcat servlet container, the Ruby and PHP 
| languages, and the Liferay Portal. The components have been tested and offer 
| increased productivity and faster time to market, Sun said. Mission-critical 
| environments and departmental applications can use the platform, the company 
| said. All components of the suite except Sun Enterprise Manager are offered 
| via open source.        



Sun Microsystems' Next Linux Move

,----[ Quote ]
| Rather, Sun is preparing to certify more of its servers for Canonical's
| Ubuntu Linux. The effort includes Sun's latest small and midsize business
| servers. In an interview with Reuters on April 2, Canonical CEO Mark
| Shuttleworth reinforced the growing relations between Sun and Ubuntu.


Sun deploys Linux high performance cluster at Kuwait Oil Company

| Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) has deployed a Linux-based High Performance Cluster
| from Sun Microsystems to run its reservoir simulation software, increase its
| processing power, and enable the company to take critical business decisions
| faster than ever before.


Sun's X64-Based Streaming Server Runs on Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| The Linux used in the system is one that Kealia created for itself
| based on an undisclosed commercial distribution with some real-time
| hooks in it to boost the responsiveness of the system. Over the long
| haul, you can bet that Sun will port the Streaming System software
| to Solaris.


Closing MySQL: Marten Mickos Responds

,----[ Quote ]
| Whatever you think of Mickos's reasoning behind the move, explained below,
| the company deserves full marks for responding so quickly to a situation that
| it admits was caused by its own slightly maladroit handling of an
| announcement, which in retrospect was bound to be controversial.


Move from Solaris to RHEL boosts performance for the Chicago Mercantile

,----[ Quote ]
| At the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, the traders betting on future commodity
| price fluctuations aren't the only ones who know what it means to take a
| risk. Five years ago, Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME), now part of the CME
| Group, placed a hefty bet: that it could trust Linux with the heart of its
| business, executing billions of contracts a year and processing them faster
| than previously.    

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
