Business description: Turbolinux distributions are designed from the ground-up specifically for enterprise computing. Turbolinux 7 Server was the first-ever to conform to Internationalization standards to help simplify development of applications that require multiple language support — a critical requirement for software distributed globally. Turbolinux 7 Server also supports the Large File Support (LFS) standard for working with applications that manage or handle up to four terabytes of data — a common requirement for infrastructures serving Fortune 500 and larger companies. Such industrial-strength environments provide the basis upon which PowerCockpit and other Turbolinux innovations were created. Turbolinux Linux operating environments run on a wide range of hardware platforms and configurations — on processors from Intel to IBM, and systems from thin clients to mainframes — and the company has partnerships and global support from Compaq, Dell, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, and Intel. Turbolinux embraces the best of Open Source, industry standards, and commercial software with products that integrate into existing IT environments to leverage and protect an organization's computing investments.
