OSDL on Thursday said the document, named Data Center Linux (DCL) Technical Capabilities version 1.0, aims to establish guidelines for using Linux, an
open-source operating system, in corporate data centers. The group hopes that the standards will help encourage businesses to consider Linux for
large-scale information technology initiatives. The enterprise Linux blueprint is the result of input from a number of OSDL's members, which include
IBM, Hewlett-Packard, Dell, Sun Microsystems and Red Hat.
