IBM offers virtual Linux-on-demand server

eCommerce Times is reporting that IBM "will launch a service that lets businesses buy 'large-scale computing infrastructure' on demand and over the Internet, much as one might buy water or electricity from a local utility company.
The technology lets users with Linux-based applications connect to IBM's zSeries mainframes running Linux, the open-source operating system. Instead of buying separate servers, companies can plug into IBM's 'virtual servers,' paying only for the power and storage they need."
