| The Linux server market is proving to be 
| big business for San Francisco-based 
| Polywell Computers, a manufacturer and 
| distributor of servers and desktops to the 
| corporate market. In fact, the 23-year-old 
| maker of low-cost PCs and servers has 
| experienced a steady and significant rise 
| in demand for Linux boxes over traditional 
| Windows PCs and servers.
| âTen years ago, 99% of our servers were 
| Windows-based, and today 99% are Linux-
| based,â says Polywell CEO Sam Chu 
| (www.polywell.com). âWe see all sizes of 
| companies, and government, moving from 
| Windows to Linux.â


CloudLinux and its Server Optimization Technology for the Hosting Market to
be Unveiled at Upcoming Industry Summit

| âI created CloudLinux OS based my previous 
| work developing the H-Sphere Control Panel. 
| I could see the need to give providers a 
| way to control the CPU and IO demands of 
| individual users to achieve high level of 
| server stability,â states Igor Seletskiy, 
| CEO of Cloud Linux Inc. âThis work is based 
| on a lot of research that has been done 
| over the years. We went deep into Linux 
| kernel to achieve high level of resource 
| isolation. We also wanted to be able to 
| offer the OS with a professionally staffed, 
| 24/7 support operation and at a low cost 
| for providers. So on behalf of my team and 
| after these many months of hard work, I am 
| proud to be introducing this new technology 
| here at the Parallelâs Summit.â 


GNU/Linux has already won.

| "Forty percent of servers run Windows, 60 percent run Linux," he said. "How
| are we doing? Forty is less than 60, so I don't like it. ... We have some
| work to do."
