Linux drivers are now available for Digi International's EtherLite line of network serial concentrators. Digi EtherLite serial concentrators simplify the process of adding RS-232, RS-422 and RS-485 serial ports to the network by combining the control and performance of local ports with the convenience of an Ethernet connection. Traffic from all 2, 8, 16 or 32 EtherLite ports is serviced by a single TCP/IP session. EtherLite serial ports appear as local TTYs under UNIX and as native COM ports under Windows NT. These locally administered, “hardware-style” ports allow greater control than standard serial concentrator ports. The Linux driver for EtherLite runs on kernel version 2.2 or higher and is supported on the following, or newer, distributions: Red Hat 6.0, Caldera OpenLinux 2.3 and SuSE Linux 6.3.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
