The OSDL Data Center Linux
has set out to:
Develop and evangelize the roadmap for a Linux platform software
that supports commercial software products and corporate IT
requirements, enabling developers to create Linux based solutions
for the data center market segment.
If that does not contain enough marketing-speak for you, there are white
papers available on the project web site. For the rest of us, what may be
of more interest is the first DCL kernel release, 2.5.44-dcl1. In addition to a few fixes, this
patch includes the Linux Kernel Crash Dump patch, EVMS, an enhanced NUMA
scheduler, and a few other tweaks. The project plans to add the shared
page table and high-resolution timers patches before too long. The -dcl
patches will show up in the "kernel trees" part of the patches section at
the bottom of this page.
