    Cisco taps Linux for agility, low cost in data center

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | By standardizing on Linux six years ago, Cisco could buy commodity servers,
    | minimizing hardware and computing costs, and "blast through" the
    | virtualization of 3,000 servers in two years, Morgan said. As a result,
    | server utilization has grown from 20% to 68% and could go as high as 80%, he
    | said.



    PostPath: Enterprise-strength open source alternative for Exchange

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | I installed PostPath under CentOS 4.5 to test it as both a standalone
    | messaging platform and along with a single Exchange 2003 server. After
    | downloading the installer ./postpath-installer.bin, I installed the PostPath
    | Server Daemon (the PostPath engine), PostPath Recipient Update Service (for
    | use when there is no existing Exchange server), PostPath Administration, and
    | PostPath Webmail.


    Are Cisco and Red Hat Getting Cozy?

    | Microsoft spent the 1990s ignoring and dismissing competitive threats from

    | many of its switches and routers, while NX-OS is a purpose built OS for
    | Cisco's Nexus core switching platform.
    | As for Linux, Cisco is using the open source operating system in various
    | areas including the AXP module that turns ISR routers into Linux app servers.

    One Router to Rule Them All

    | It's not that often that I get to do first-hand, on-the-scene reporting, so I
    | was somewhat surprised last week to open an email from one of Cisco's PR

    | Linux and Open Source community. Being the curious sort, I couldn't pass up
    | such an opportunity. * *

    | independent software vendors (ISVs) that write applications for their
    | respective platforms. *

    It would be nice if Cisco's own training materials, ie: CBT didn't require
    Windows to run.
