VA Linux adds major customers
Posted on: 03/29/2000 11:52 PM is reporting that VA Linux, Providers of complete Linux solutions (hardware, software, and support), have signed on two new customers that will buy hundreds of its servers. Why is this important?
The deals highlight one area where Linux is gaining a foothold: large number of slim servers stacked in racks, attached to the Internet and often connected to a more powerful back-end system. Linux in this area costs less than proprietary Unix or Windows systems, particularly when coupled with comparatively inexpensive Intel-based hardware, advocates say.
Ooooh yeah, look out world, Linux is coming through! :-) You can check out the rest of the story here.
