Aug 27, 2001, 01:00 ET from Rackspace Managed Hosting

    SAN ANTONIO, Aug. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Rackspace founders and Open Source
 experts Richard Yoo and Dirk Elmendorf are available for interviews on any of
 the current topics listed below:
 
     Burning Issues - Open Source Today
 
     Mono & DotGNU
     Microsoft's .Net initiative is quickly gaining momentum, and the Linux
 community is working hard to ensure that it is not left out of the .NET
 framework.  Rackspace's founders can share their projections for Mono and
 DotGNU, the Linux community's answers to .NET.
 
     Open Source Database Summit
     Databases are the foundation of enterprise and Internet applications.  The
 Open Source Database summit is an expression of the Open Source community's
 move to develop and promote databases that rival SQL7 and Oracle.  Talk to
 Dirk Elmendorf about how far Open Source databases have come and how they are
 moving forward.
 
     Consolidation in the Linux Industry
     There used to be hundreds of companies that sold or distributed Linux -
 now there are just a handful.  Rackspace experts can discuss what is happening
 in the Linux industry today and why.
 
     Backlash against Corporate IT
     There are a number of reasons why larger enterprises are moving away from
 using licensed software and more into Open Source.  Are companies fed up of
 paying for user licenses or are they simply drawn to the customizable nature
 of Open Source applications?  Talk to Richard Yoo and Dirk Elmendorf about
 both the expert's and the end-user's perspectives.
 
     Server Security
     Recent worm attacks like Code Red have made Windows security a hot-button
 issue.  Are Linux systems more secure?  How do you ensure that your Internet
 servers are safe?  Ask our experts ...
 
     Beowulf Clustering
     The need for computation-intensive applications is on the increase.
 Server clusters are required for both academic and commercial research --
 including genome mapping, seismic research, space exploration and industry
 simulations -- and entertainment, such as in rendering graphics for movies.
 Richard Yoo is available to discuss the benefits of using Linux in
 applications like these.
 
     High-Availability Clustering
     The Linux clustering market has proliferated in recent months.  Learn from
 our experts about Linux clustering solutions available today and discuss their
 strengths and weaknesses.
