Posted on Saturday, October 06 2007 @ 15:52:19 CEST by

HP's Director of Engineering for open-source and Linux organization Randy Hergett said at the Gelato Itanium Conference & Expo in Singapore that Linux is ready to be used in some mission-critical applications:
Linux is "ready for most applications," he said, noting that there are telecommunications companies running mission-critical databases on Linux, and overall adoption levels are ramping up.

Citing an HP-commissioned global study conducted by market-research company GCR earlier this year, Hergett said that three out of five decision makers were ready to deploy Linux for mission-critical applications within the next two years, while one in five saw that happening in five years' time.

On whether Linux can satisfy these two requirements of security and reliability, Hergett said: "It does...From a security standpoint, we think Linux is actually very secure."

"With reliability, I think it's not as robust yet (as HP's own iteration) or some of the other proprietary Unix systems, but it's making great progress," Hergett added.

On whether the availability of different flavors of Linux will affect its adoption for mission-critical applications, Hergett said he did not think so.
