Linux NetworX and PolyServe CTOs Team Up for LinuxWorld Presentation; Session to Address the Fundamental Differences Among Cluster Types

Jan 22, 2002, 00:00 ET from Linux NetworX

    SALT LAKE CITY, Jan. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Linux NetworX, a provider of
 powerful and easy-to-manage cluster supercomputing solutions, is joining
 efforts with PolyServe, a next-generation systems software provider, to
 present a session titled "Clusters in the Enterprise" at the LinuxWorld
 Conference & Expo on February 1, 2002, at 1 p.m. in New York City.
     The session will be co-presented by Joshua Harr, chief technology officer
 (CTO) of Linux NetworX and Michael Callahan, CTO of PolyServe.  The
 presentation will outline the fundamental differences among computational,
 high-availability and data clusters, as well as the current status of each
 cluster classification and areas of development.
     "Cluster computing is a term that is often generalized and misused, so
 this presentation will serve as a basic overview to help clarify the different
 types of clusters that are available, " said Harr.  "LinuxWorld is a great
 forum to discuss the development of Linux clusters because attendees come to
 evaluate and learn about Linux technologies and will leave this presentation
 with a greater understanding of the different ways Linux clusters are being
 used."
     Both Callahan and Harr have extensive experience with Linux clustering and
 have made significant contributions to the industry.  The presenters will
 address the functionality and strengths of different cluster configurations,
 and reasons for the growing adoption of cluster technology.
     "Many enterprise customers are aiming to deploy applications on Linux
 using highly cost-effective, industry standard servers, and clustering
 technology plays a key role in making this possible," said Callahan.  "To do
 this effectively, it is necessary to understand the different approaches that
 are available."
     The LinuxWorld Conference & Expo will be held January 29 to
 February 1, 2002, at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City.
