What Is Linux?
Overview
  • POSIX-like OS created by Linus Torvalds in 1991
  • Worldwide development effort coordinated via
    Internet
  • Distributed under GNU General Public License
    (GPL)
  • Packaged versions available for commercial
    distribution from Red Hat, Caldera, SuSE, others
  • Runs on Intel and RISC architectureswith a
    single-source code base

Linux Growth Drivers
Technology Overview
  • Price Linux is free or inexpensive to acquire
  • Speed Compact kernel, tuned IP stack, x86
    optimized
  • Stability Less complex, more bug-free than NT
  • Support Hot fixes patches received in hours
    from extended Linux community
  • Cost Cheap, old Intel machines can be recycled
  • Flexibility Kernel access for software
    development
  • Breadth Available on Intel and popular RISC
    machines

10
Linux Growth Inhibitors
Technology Overview
  • Lack of packaged applications and tools
  • Ease/Speed of installation and configuration
  • Availability of training and quality
    documentation
  • Scalability beyond 4 processors, HA/ Clustering,
    JFS
  • Hacker OS reputation, mistrust of freeware
  • FUD regarding governance, roadmap,
    accountability, balkanization
  • Development and support model scalability
  • Understanding legal issues / licensing schemes

Aberdeen Groups in depth report on HP, Open
Source and Linux
Strategy
  • HP is making the right moves with its evolving
    Linux strategy.
  • All enterprises with an interest in capitalizing
    on Linux as a low-cost, reliable, robust OS with
    increasingly greater range in scalability should
    put HP on the short list
  • Aberdeen believes that HP understands - and is
    positioned to deliver - what it will take to make
    Linux a key OS player in Web commerce

Linux Clustering
Parallel Computing with HP Workstations
Linux supports parallel computing, so-called
Beowulf Cluster CERN (European Consortium for
High Energy Physics) use 16 Linux HP Kayaks,
instead of the IBM SPSupercomputer
In January 1998 Hewlett-Packard and GSI started a
joint project on Linux PC Clustering at CERN

Timeline for Linux on HP 9000
  • Oct. 98 - Project idea by Puffin Group
  • Feb. 99 - HP support begins
  • March - Preliminary docs to Puffins
  • May 1 - Linux kernel boot on PA 1.0
  • May 19 - First in person team meeting - Linux
    Expo (Some top Open Source players
    involved)
  • June 1 - Complete A- Class docs to Puffin
    developers
  • June 1 - Boot loading code does work
    (preliminary bootstrap code uses ISL and is
    in development kernel)

21
HP LINUX IA64 Port
Strategy
  • IA64 -gt EPIC cowork between Intel and HP
  • LINUX/IA64 Port
  • gt Full 64-bit NetOS
  • gt efficient large file support
  • gt vast virtual address space
  • gt will Support LINUX/x86 binaries
  • HP began port 2/98
  • gt based on IA64 simulator
  • gt now 6-way Open Source Project with Intel,
    Cygnus, CERN, SGI and VA Linux
