Linux start-up bets on new product, HP deal

Author: JT Smith

From "Mission Critical Linux next week will release a new high-end product for telecommunications companies and announce a partnership with Hewlett-Packard, moves that could help the start-up resolve uncertainty about its future.

Mission Critical Linux , based in Lowell, Mass., sells versions of Linux for "failover clustering," in which one computer can take over for a crashed comrade. The current general-purpose clustering product, Convolo, will be joined by NetGuard for telecommunications customers at the LinuxWorld Conference and Expo trade show."
