Linux NetworX Announces Expanded Professional Services

New Services to Include Application Porting

And Cluster Certification/Training



Jan 07, 2002, 00:00 ET from Linux NetworX

    SALT LAKE CITY, Jan. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Linux NetworX, a provider of
 powerful and easy-to-manage cluster supercomputing solutions, announced today
 plans to expand its Professional Services Group to help lower the barriers to
 adopting Linux-based cluster systems.  Existing services include on-site
 cluster integration and 7 x 24 support, while expanded services will include
 application porting and optimization, and cluster training/certification.
     "The Linux NetworX Professional Services Group will help make cluster
 computing more widely available to those organizations with limited technical
 resources, while allowing all of our customers to get the most out of their
 clustering investment," said Clark Roundy, vice president marketing and
 professional services for Linux NetworX.  "The benefits of the expanded
 services include easier-to-manage and more efficient systems that further
 reduce the total cost-of-ownership for our customers."
     The application porting service to be offered by Linux NetworX is vital in
 helping organizations change from traditional supercomputers or UNIX-based
 systems, to using a Linux cluster supercomputer.  For most organizations the
 return-on-investment for porting the application is realized well within the
 first year because of the enormous price-to-performance advantage Linux
 clusters deliver.
     Linux cluster supercomputing, sometimes called parallel processing or
 distributed computing, is a method of linking multiple computers together to
 form a unified and very powerful system.  By taking advantage of standard
 computer components, Linux NetworX clusters can match the performance of
 supercomputers for a fraction of the cost.  Despite all of the benefits of
 clustering, there are some challenges, including the need for in-depth
 technical knowledge, and application compatibility.
     Linux NetworX currently offers system integration, training and on-going
 support services.  Application porting and optimization services will be
 available Feb. 2002, while Linux cluster certification training will be
 available May 2002.  For more information, please e-mail
