Sun Taps Linux Guru to Guide Operating System Strategy
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

If you want to beat them, get them to join you. That appears to be the strategy that server and operating system maker Sun Microsystems is taking as it hired Ian Murdock, one of the luminaries of the open source community and co-founder of the Debian distribution of Linux, to head up operating system platform strategy.

IBM's Plan for an Adjacent, Custom Systems Market
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

In seven years, server maker IBM has come a long way. As the millennium turned, Sun Microsystems was growing so fast that it looked like it would overtake the top spot in the server racket in a year or two, and then Hewlett-Packard bought Compaq, and looked like it would unseat Big Blue as the world's largest revenue generator in the market for general purpose servers. Back in 2000, IBM's revenue share had fallen to 22 percent, and now it is pushing up toward 40 percent. READ MORE >

IDC Chops Server Forecasts Thanks to Virtualization, Multicore Chips
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

The IT analysts are finally coming around to the idea that server virtualization and multicore processors are going to have a disruptive effect on the server market from this point forward. Only weeks after IDC announced its figures for server shipments and revenues in the fourth quarter of 2006, when virtualization and multicore chips started a small downdraft in the server space, the consultancy has revised its server market models through 2010 significantly downward.

Mad Dog 21/21: The China Spin Drone
by Hesh Wiener

At 3 p.m. on February 27, the Dow Jones Industrial Average, which was falling in sympathy with a meltdown on the Shanghai exchange, seemed to drop off a cliff. What actually happened is that the computer behind the average was falling behind, so Dow switched to a backup system, which caught up very quickly, bringing the day to a miserable end. The Dow incident is an example of the Roadrunner Effect, where the Coyote runs past the edge of the cliff but doesn't fall until he looks down. A similar thing might be happening in the computer industry right now. READ MORE >
