Compaq brings server clustering to Linux through SteelEye’s Software

Posted by Keith Elder | Posted in Computer Hardware, Linux | Posted on 29-01-2001

It seems that Compaq is trying to bring a little more redunacy to Linux through SteelEye’s clustering software. Some of you may know that clustering technology is already available for Linux however the different is that SteelEye’s software extends the failover capabilities from one machine to another. This is great for those companies looking at high end web and database servers. It is also kinda bad for companies like Sun Microsystems who are currently striving in this type of business. It is a about time that Compaq steps up and makes some noise as IBM has been stealing all of the thunder lately.

Very thoughtful point about home heating. I do agree we all have to look for long term solutions for our homes. the rise of fuel and electricity these days really pushes the monthly bill on home appliances, solar water heating is definitely the way to go green and stable in the near future.
