To choose the Top 100 Emerging Companies, a panel of editors from Computerworld magazine, an information services company for the IT leader community, and a group of information technology industry experts selected companies whose products present creative solutions to IT issues, compete in new or emerging markets and demonstrate value in corporate IT operations.
"In selecting the Computerworld Top 100 Emerging Companies for 2002, the editors and panel members emphasized innovation," said Maryfran Johnson, editor in chief of Computerworld. "These companies are creating products or services that present a new and creative approach to an IT issue, while demonstrating that they have the foundation, vision, and strategy to succeed in the years ahead."
Linux NetworX was selected because of its computer cluster solutions and cluster management products - Evolocity, ClusterWorXÂ® and ICE Box. These products have received other awards for their technical merit, including most recently the "Open Source Product Exellence Award" at the 2001 LinuxWorld Expo trade show.
Linux clustering provides an alternative to traditional supercomputing by using a method of linking multiple computers together to form a unified and very powerful computing system. By taking advantage of standard computer components, Linux NetworX clusters can match the performance of supercomputers for a fraction of the cost.
