Startup 3Leaf Systems Looks to Shake Up Server Virtualization
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

A Silicon Valley startup with some prominent venture capital backers called 3Leaf Systems came out of stealth mode yesterday, and if the company's founders and engineers can accomplish their goals for changing the way server and storage virtualization are done on the X64 platform, they will not only shake up the market for virtualization products on the X64 platform. They might even give the X64 platform some competitive edges against RISC/Unix and mainframe alternatives. READ MORE >

Sun's X64-Based Streaming Server Runs on Linux
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

Server maker Sun Microsystems last week used the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City as a springboard to launch its new Streaming System, a cluster of application servers and storage servers and a new video stream switch, marking its entry into a market that one of the company's co-founders and current chief X64 system architect, Andy Bechtolsheim, was getting set to chase when Sun acquired a startup that he founded called Kealia.

More Details Emerge on IBM's Upcoming Power6 Server Launch
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

IBM, like most other server makers, doesn't like to talk about upcoming product launches because such talk can have an adverse effect on sales in the current quarter. That's one of the reasons why Big Blue is not talking about its upcoming Power6 server launch, and it is also why the company has done nothing to confirm or deny some of the rumors that are running around about Power6 being delayed. But if some of the sources I have heard from are right, then the Power6 launch is imminent. READ MORE >


Mad Dog 21/21: Hearts and Minds
by Hesh Wiener

In 1991, Richard Stallman's great project, the GNU operating system, was made whole when Linus Torvalds developed the kernel, Linux, that it had lacked. The next year, there was a marriage. Henceforth, Linux, like GNU before it, was to be distributed under the General Public License (GPL), the legal arrangement that defines Free Software. Today, GNU/Linux is arguably the most popular server operating system, and the GPL is the dominant license for revealed source code software. Yet it is still not certain that there is safe place for both hearts and minds in the unfolding world of software development. READ MORE >
