Lineo's High Availability Linux Solution Provides Highly Scalable Clustering

With Performance and High-Density for Content Networking Providers of Internet

Services



Jun 25, 2001, 01:00 ET from Lineo, Inc.

    PARIS, June 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Lineo(R), Inc., a leading innovator in
 embedded systems, real time and high availability solutions, today announced
 the availability of Lineo Availix(TM) Vertical Clustering 1.0, an innovative
 solution to provide Internet data centers, large Internet service providers
 and access providers with high scalability and performance for non-stop access
 services.
     Availix clustering solutions are based on the Linux operating system,
 high-speed switched technologies, and CompactPCI bus.  They offer high
 availability and full hot-swap capabilities with all the benefits of a single
 administration interface per cluster and shared devices.
     The Availix Vertical Clustering (Availix VC) architecture consists of
 interconnected CompactPCI clusters (called Horizontal clusters) and data
 storage devices over a storage area network.  Interconnections, based on
 high-speed switched fabrics, allow significant workload distribution over
 horizontal sub-clusters.  Within this architecture, Lineo's Availix solution
 is able to process and deliver huge amounts of content.
     "Availix Vertical Clustering is the outcome of three years of development
 started at CNRS (French national research center).  Availix is an immediate
 solution allowing clusters to be highly scalable without compromising either
 the performance or high availability," said Hugo Delchini, Lineo high
 availability CTO.  "Now with Availix Horizontal and Vertical Clustering
 solutions, we offer a complete range of high performance clustering solutions
 for mission critical applications."
 
      Availix Vertical Clustering 1.0 introduces the following innovations:
      -- Second level of high availability load balancing
      -- Full architecture monitoring for fail over management
      -- Secured shared data, using distributed and synchronized Linux file
         system (GFS)
      -- Switched technology cost reduction due to clusters minimal
         interconnection with storage area networks
      -- Remote maintenance using SNMP protocol on vertical architecture
      -- High density of servers up to 16 CPUs per 8U Cluster
      -- Scalability from two to as many as seven processor clusters
 
     The Availix Vertical Clustering architecture can be used to build an
 effective global solution including storage area networks.  Damian Saura,
 country manager, MTI France, said, "The Availix Vertical Clustering solution
 and MTI Vivant storage combination gives Internet providers a way to
 efficiently manage their content, taking full advantage of all the benefits of
 this clustering architecture."  Availix VC supports both S200 and D100 MTI
 Vivant products.
     Based on distributed horizontal clusters, the Availix VC architecture runs
 Web serving, application serving and databases.  It handles applications such
 as Apache, Zeus, Sendmail, SMTP, FTP, Radius, H323 gatekeeper, DNS, Real
 Server, Oracle parallel server and MySQL.  Availix VC is available on Pentium
 CompactPCI boards from I-Bus and VMIC.
 
     Pricing and Availability
     Lineo's Availix VC 1.0 facilitates the interconnection of horizontal
 clusters.  It is now available and priced at $500 per CompactPCI horizontal
 cluster.  Availix Horizontal Clustering 1.3 is priced at $2000 per processor
 board.  For additional information regarding pricing and availability, please
