To: Subject: CLUSTERING FOR LINUX - TurboLInux Date: Mon, 9 Aug 1999 08:50:54 -0700 Hello Jonathan , I am writing to let you know that our client, TurboLinux, the leader in high-performance Linux, is making several SIGNIFICANT industry announcements that I thought might be of interest to you and your readers. Following are some of the news highlights with the complete releases for each included below: 1) AT LONG LAST-CLUSTERING FOR LINUX HAS ARRIVED! TurboLinux is releasing the industry's first high-availability clustering software solution for the enterprise-TurboCluster Server. TurboCluster Server is the industry's FIRST Linux clustering application available and scalable for Web servers on Intel and Alpha architecture platforms. Unlike Beowulf clustering systems that are designed for highly specialized scientific computing applications, TurboCluster Server delivers clustering technology for Linux servers running mission-critical Web applications. For Net businesses, the availability of TurboCluster Server offers, for the first time, a low-cost alternative to proprietary and more expensive Microsoft NT and UNIX cluster solutions. Additional information on TurboCluster Server, including a white paper and FAQ, is available at http://www.community.turbolinux.com. 2) THERE IS NOW A LINUX CLUSTERING SOLUTION FOR ALPHA PROCESSORS! TurboLinux is the first company to port a Linux clustering solution to the Alpha architecture platform. TurboCluster Server for Alpha is slated to ship in Q4 of 1999. A complete demonstration of TurboCluster and the port of TurboCluster to Alpha will be made by TurboLinux at the Linux World Expo show in San Jose (booth #1020) as well as by hardware partners Adaptec, Compaq and IBM. In addition, TurboLinux also plans to unveil TurboLinux Server 4.0 at the show. So, if you are planning to attend the Linux World Expo, please stop by the TurboLinux booth for a complete demonstration. If your interest in an interview with TurboLinux president, Cliff Miller and/or vice president of North American Operations, Lonn Johnston, please feel free to contact me or stop by their booth (#1020). If you have any other questions, feel free to contact me at (408)727-0351 or reach me via e-mail at - firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you for your time and consideration.
