by Timothy Prickett Morgan

Commercial Linux and middleware distributor Red Hat reported its financial results for its fiscal 2008 second quarter last week, and Matthew Szulik, the company's chairman and chief executive officer, also announced that the company has been working on a reorganization he called '20/20' that will change the way the company does engineering, sales, and marketing for its various product lines in an effort to position itself for growth as it tries to break through the $1 billion sales barrier.

An Update from the X64 Server Battlefields
by Dan Olds

Four major vendors--Hewlett-Packard, Dell, IBM, and Sun Microsystems--are engaged in an often brutal head-to-head competition in the X64 server market. As vendors race for the biggest piece of the pie, customers are faced with conflicting claims and constantly changing technology. We believe the best way to track technology advances, figure out which new technologies are actually beneficial, and assess shifting customer perceptions about the major vendors is to go directly to the data center for answers via our ongoing Server Vendor Preference Surveys.

by Timothy Prickett Morgan

Hewlett-Packard has not been near the top of the global list of supercomputer sites since the ASCI-Q Unix supercomputer built by Compaq's Alpha RISC servers and its Tru64 Unix were riding high at Los Alamos National Laboratory back before HP even bought Compaq. But this week, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory is going to vault HP into the upper echelons of the Top 500 list by installing a 163 teraflops Opteron-based Linux cluster that is being built by HP.

Sun Ships Intel-Based Galaxy Rack Servers
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

Seven months after inking a joint development and OEM agreement with Intel, the engineers at Sun Microsystems have put out a second-generation of 'Galaxy' X64-based servers that make use of the latest quad-core Xeon processors from Intel.
