CALDERA'S OPENLINUX ESERVER 2.3 DEBUTS WITH IBM'S WEBSPHERE.Caldera caldera: see crater.
Large, bowl-shaped volcanic depression that forms when the top of a volcanic cone collapses into the space left after magma is ejected during a violent volcanic eruption. The term is Spanish for “caldron. Systems, Inc., Orem, Utah Orem is an incorporated town in the north-central part of the state of Utah in Utah County. It is adjacent to Provo, Lindon, and Vineyard and is about 45 miles south of Salt Lake City. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 84,324. has introduced OpenLinux eServer 2.3. OpenLinux eServer is based on Caldera's award- winning OpenLinux technology that recently won seven industry awards, including "Best Networked Operating System and "Linux Distribution of the Millennium." The OpenLinux eServer 2.3 ships with IBM's VisualAge for Java and WebSphere Application Server Standard Edition, V2.03, for Linux.
OpenLinux eServer 2.3 is designed to save hours of configuration and administration time for network and system administrators deploying Linux solutions into their network infrastructure. Designed to be the most easy-to-use Linux for eBusiness Server platform, OpenLinux eServer 2.3 has been productized and provides benefits beyond those of rapid deployment.
OpenLinux eServer is the first Linux product to include Webmin, a powerful Web-based remote administration interface. Through Webmin, managers can remotely administer eServer from nearly anywhere and virtually manage all aspects of their systems as well as many third-party applications.
Additionally, solutions providers can reduce the cost of on-site trouble-shooting through its powerful administrative capabilities.
WebSphere and VisualAge
Included in OpenLinux eServer 2.3 is IBM's WebSphere Application Server providing full Java support for the latest APIs and dynamic Web content generation including the use of JavaServer pages, servlet A Java application that runs in a Web server or application server and provides server-side processing such as accessing a database and e-commerce transactions. Widely used for Web processing, servlets are designed to handle HTTP requests (get, post, etc. applications and JavaBeans technology. WebSphere technology targets simple to medium-level eBusiness transactional environments in tandem with dynamic Web content generation.
WebSphere includes a function-rich IBM HTTP server IBM HTTP Server (IHS) is a web server based on the Apache Software Foundation's Apache HTTP Server that runs on AIX, HP-UX, Linux, Solaris, Windows NT, and z/OS. It is available for download and use IBM HTTP Server free of charge but without IBM support. (based on technology from the Apache HTTP server The Apache HTTP Server, commonly referred to simply as Apache, is a web server notable for playing a key role in the initial growth of the World Wide Web. Apache was the first viable alternative to the Netscape Communications Corporation web server (currently known as Sun ) with SSL-based security and performance features.
VisualAge for Java works closely with WebSphere enabling developers to test and debug To correct a problem in hardware or software. Debugging software means locating the errors in the source code (the program logic). Debugging hardware means finding errors in the circuit design (logical circuits) or in the physical interconnections of the circuits. applications remotely, greatly decreasing development time.
OpenLinux eServer has been compiled and optimized to run on Pentium II (and higher) processors and is certified to run on IBM's Netfinity line of hardware as well as other IA servers. It can support up to 4GB memory and supports the new Raw I/O (Input/Output) The transfer of data between the CPU and a peripheral device. Every transfer is an output from one device and an input to another. See PC input/output.
I/O - Input/Output and dynamic file descriptors increasing the scalability of powerful applications like Lotus Domino/Notes.
"This is the Linux for eBusiness server solution that the enterprise has been asking us for," said Ransom Love, President and CEO (1) (Chief Executive Officer) The highest individual in command of an organization. Typically the president of the company, the CEO reports to the Chairman of the Board. of Caldera Systems, Inc.
"With the inclusion of WebSphere and VisualAge, any business needing Linux eBusiness solutions will want it. Who wouldn't? System and network administrators can now rapidly deploy Linux eBusiness solutions and remotely and securely manage their systems at an extremely low cost -- it's a no-brainer."
"As a recognized leader in Linux for eBusiness solutions, Caldera has the experience and market presence to give business partners the ability to capitalize on opportunities in this exciting new space," said Dick Sullivan, vice president of Integrated Solutions Marketing, IBM (International Business Machines Corporation, Armonk, NY, www.ibm.com) The world's largest computer company. IBM's product lines include the S/390 mainframes (zSeries), AS/400 midrange business systems (iSeries), RS/6000 workstations and servers (pSeries), Intel-based servers (xSeries) Software Group.
OpenLinux eServer 2.3 is designed for installation and deployment in an enterprise-class environment and contains multi-user disk quota support enabled by default on individual workstations. In short, it can be set up and run out of the box.
