Big Guns Take Linux Higher

Hoping to accelerate acceptance for grid computing among commercial users, IBM is developing a grid-enabled version of WebSphere, code-named Cayuga. According to sources familiar with the company’s plans, Cayuga is designed to make it easier to implement and manage grids.
