IBM Opens Servers to Linux Apps

Michael Lindenberger

IBM has released software this week that will allow x86 Linux applications to run on IBM's system P servers, according to technewsworld.com.

 

The beta release uses QuickTransit software from Transitive to enable software written to be used on one chip to be translated into a language needed to run a different server. It also stores frequently used instructions for faster execution, according to the report.

 

Computerworld.com reports that already 2,800 Linux applications run on IBM's system P servers. The number will increase with this release of the new open source product.
