IBM adds Linux support to eServer iSeries models

Author: JT Smith

From Enterprise Linux Today: "IBM has announced that it now supports Linux on its eServer iSeries models 270, 830, and 840. According to the
company, Linux now runs on all IBM platforms. The iSeries machines are designed for mid-size businesses.

A single iSeries server can support up to 31 separate Linux partitions. Each Linux partition can share processors,
disk, tape, LAN and other resources with other applications running on the iSeries server. Initially, Linux
distributions from Red Hat and SuSe will be deployed on the new iSeries models."
