Government eyes Xserve over Linux
Apple’s success within the research markets is opening doorways for the organization inside the potentially lucrative government and enterprise markets.
US title Government Computer News yesterday confirmed this inside a piece entitled: “Apple Xserve G5 challenges Linux clusters”.
It begins: “The Xserve isn’t for this people, it’s for users themselves to setup, Apple’s server hardware product manager Douglas Brooks stated.”
Brooks was speaking in the US Authorities computing event FOSE 2004 in Washington. He told attendees there that: “Dual-processor version is hardware-streamlined for tight coupling within an Apple Workgroup Cluster, in comparison using the more loosely coupled Linux PC clusters nicknamed Beowulf.”
Apple stressed its good relationship using the open-source community in the show, which is “positive” about security.
Recent surveys claim the united states FBI uses Macs, because they are safer than market-dominant Home windows systems.
