Linux takes on bigger jobs

Author: JT Smith

ZDNET reports: It's beginning to look like 2001 is the year Linux gets down to
business. Systems managers who used to ask how Linux crept in the
back door now ask if they can get the server to run it through the
front door.

In Vancouver, British Columbia, for example, Metahost.net, a provider
of J.D. Edwards and other Enterprise Resource Planning applications,
runs Linux on a combination of two IBM z900s, the former
System/390 mainframe. Metahost supplements the two big servers
with hundreds of thin servers, according to Metahost spokesman Jag
Sandhu.
