It doesn't matter how big your infrastructure is, even if it's planetary sized, Linux can handle it. Got massive amounts of data to analyze? Check out our article on IBM's InfoSphere Streams. Need a SAN on a budget, use Linux to provide it. Messaging problems, try AMQP (Advanced Message Queuing Protocol). In addition to our feature articles, don't miss our articles on RSpec, DEFCON, Ext3 vs XFS, Virtualization, HIPL, Pokerth, X-Moto and more.

Until recently, IBM’s Power Platform was looked upon as being the system that hosted IBM’s flavor of UNIX and proprietary operating system called IBM i. These servers often are found in medium-size businesses running ERP, CRM and financials for on-premise customers. By enabling the Power platform to run the Linux OS, IBM now has positioned Power to be the platform of choice for those already running Linux that are facing scalability issues, especially customers looking at analytics, big data or cloud computing.
￼Running Linux on IBM’s Power hardware offers some obvious benefits, including improved processing speed and memory bandwidth, inherent security, and simpler deployment and management. But if you look beyond the impressive architecture, you’ll also find an open ecosystem that has given rise to a strong, innovative community, as well as an inventory of system and network management applications that really help leverage the benefits offered by running Linux on Power.Get the Guide
