HP Drives Linux Adoption
SAN FRANCISCO -- HP (NYSE: HPQ) today announced new tools and programs to help customers take further advantage of open source and Linux in their data centers.
Announced at LinuxWorld 2007, the offerings include the open sourcing of the HP-developed Parallel Compositing Library visualization software, which enables customers to leverage previously unused compute power to visualize complex data sets.
Further expanding the ways customers can reap benefits from Linux and open source in their IT environments, HP added Xen and guest operating system support for Debian to its recently launched HP Partner Virtualization Program, and the company broadened its pay-per-use pricing offering with Linux running on HP Integrity servers.
Open source in high-performance computing
HPs move to open source its Parallel Compositing Library addresses the increased demand for Linux and open source in high-performance computing. Linux-based HP High-Performance Computing solutions offer customers with complex computational needs solid performance and cost benefits. Healthcare customers The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center and Partners HealthCare, for example, are investing in these technologies to help accelerate drug discovery.
