SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- PolyServe, Inc., a provider of system software for running enterprise applications on clusters of industry standard servers, today announced comprehensive support for Sun Linux and Sun's new general-purpose Linux server, the Sun(TM) LX50 system. This support, which builds on a long-standing relationship between the two companies, will help enable enterprises to unify computing resources and lower cost in implementing a Sun Linux solution. PolyServe, Inc. will demonstrate Oracle 9i Real Application Clusters (RAC) with PolyServe(TM) Matrix Server and Matrix HA system software products on Sun's new LX50 servers at the LinuxWorld Conference and Expo in San Francisco, CA, August 12-15 in Sun's booth (#1265) and in PolyServe's booth (#655). PolyServe Matrix Server, a highly reliable and scalable cluster file system (CFS), enables multiple Sun LX50 servers to read and write to shared file systems on a storage area network (SAN). Matrix Server enables administrators to manage many industry standard servers as a single unified logical pool of highly available computing resources. This dramatically lowers system management costs and gives corporations the ability to respond more quickly to changing data center demand. Matrix Server is tightly integrated with PolyServe Matrix HA, proven high-availability software which makes the server cluster resilient to single, or even multiple, device or application failures. Using Matrix Server and Matrix HA, new servers can easily be added to the pool and applications can be quickly deployed and moved between servers. Matrix Server supports enterprise applications such as databases, application servers, web servers and file servers. The product also includes specific support and optimization for Oracle9i Real Application Clusters, Oracle's clustered database technology. Sun's newest horizontally scalable general purpose Linux server, the Sun LX50 provides high-performance x86-based hardware tuned for the Solaris(TM) or Linux operating systems, fully integrated infrastructure software, improved manageability and the 7x24 support and professional services that most vendors' entry systems lack. The enterprise-ready LX50 server lowers the cost of deployment and helps to fill the security and stability gap that other Windows and Linux systems leave wide open. "Sun and Sun Linux represent key strategic opportunities for PolyServe. We are excited to see Sun leverage its enterprise experience, expertise and support in its approach to the Linux market," said Mike Stankey, CEO of PolyServe. "Sun is a leader in bringing robust technology solutions to the enterprise. The combination of the Sun Linux platform, Sun's enterprise expertise, experience and support with PolyServe's advanced system software products create a powerful, cost-effective platform for mission-critical applications in the data center." "Customers moving enterprise applications onto Linux require a manageability tool to help them respond more quickly to their changing data center demands," said Bill Roth, marketing group manager, Sun Cobalt at Sun Microsystems, Inc. "By working with PolyServe to support Matrix Server on the new Sun LX50 systems, we can provide our joint customers with powerful system management functionality that unifies computing resources to lower cost."
