Unisys Finally Does Linux as Well as Windows
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

If the universe ran smoothly, Unisys, which was the early proponent of Microsoft's Datacenter Edition of Windows 2000, would not need to think about supporting Linux. Companies sick of paying high prices for RISC/Unix servers would simply port their applications to Windows and run them on a Unisys ES7000 mainframe. But the universe doesn't run smoothly, and because many Unix shops prefer Linux over Windows, Unisys needs to support--really support--Linux. Starting this week, it does. READ MORE >

by Timothy Prickett Morgan

Intel Launches 64-Bit Xeons For Servers
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

While Intel probably could have launched the server variants of its 64-bit "Nocona" Xeon DP processors a month ago when the chips and their related chipsets were made available for workstations, the company decided to hold off, most likely to give server makers time to qualify the chip for their designs and to give Intel something to say at the LinuxWorld show this week in San Francisco.

HP, IBM Roll Out Nocona Servers
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

With the launch of the "Nocona" Xeon DP processors from Intel this week, the major server makers are trying to make the best of an increasingly difficult job of differentiating the products that are based on X86 processors from each other and from their own Unix or proprietary lines. Hewlett-Packard, the volume leader in the Intel space, and IBM, which is moving aggressively in blades and high-end machines, both refreshed their server lines this week.. READ MORE >
