300 ways to use Linux

Unsure how to deploy Linux properly in data centers? Maybe you should read the new document that defines around 300 capabilities for the use of Linux in such environments.

The OSDL DCL Working Group, a body dedicated to the promotion of open source software in businesses, released a technical document for enterprises. The document titled Data Center Linux (DCL) Technical Capabilities version 1.0 contains guidelines and instructions on how to use Linux in a corporate data center.

The group hopes that this document will encourage more companies to use Linux in a large scale for their enterprise computing needs. The OSDL member companies like HP, IBM, Sun, and Red Hat, and other interested individuals have prepared this document.

The document defines around 300 capabilities for the use of Linux, arranged into categories like scalability, performance, reliability/availability/scalability, manageability, clusters, standards, security, and usability. Each of the capabilities listed within the broad range in this document has been analyzed for applicability to data center Linux. At a future date, the contributors intend to drive a specific requirements document from this list of capabilities.
