The LKCD is focused on improving the reliability of memory dump capabilities and the efficiency of memory analysis required for analyzing OS failures. Turbolinux 7 Sever has already implemented the alliance's LKCD recommendations. (Editors: see "Turbolinux 7 Server, First-Ever Linux Distribution to Conform to Internationalization Standard Specifications," November 7, 2001 and "Tech Industry Leaders Join Forces In An Open Consortium To Support Next-Generation Computing," December 19, 2001)
Turbolinux works closely with several industry-wide groups including the LI18NUX, LSB, and the Atlas consortium toward the common goal of expanding Linux acceptance and use within the enterprise.
"This is just further proof of Turbolinux's on-going commitment to supporting enterprise customers with their adoption of Linux for mission-critical operations," said Ly-Huong Pham, CEO of Turbolinux. "At Turbolinux, we envision a future where Linux is pervasive in the enterprise. The stability of Linux, running on mainframes or servers, delivers the reliability, availability, and scalability necessary for everything from back-end databases, to supercomputing and Internet edge servers."
Enterprise Features Help Linux Win Converts
Turbolinux 7 Server supports several enterprise features including Large File Support (LFS) for files up to four terabytes in size. Such support is critical for archival storage and extremely large data sets. The popularity of Linux for animation production and for scientific clustering combined with the ever-increasing performance of x86 hardware underscores the need for LFS and LKCD. In addition, Turbolinux 7 Server supports the Logical Volume Manager (LVM), which provides flexible disk volume management. LVM allows customers to manage storage more simply by seamlessly combining multiple disk drives and partitions.
