LXer: HP ProCurve Bringing Applications to Networking Gear with Linux

Published at LXer:

Like Cisco's AXP, HP will use Linux as the core underlying operating system on which application vendors will deliver their solutions. A Linux 2.6 kernel will sit on top of HP's new ProCurve ONE Services zl Module, which is a blade that plugs into the ProCurve Switch 5400zl and 8200zl series switches. An HP spokesperson explained to that the Linux OS is being used as a service OS to provide application installations, diagnostics and the checking of application licensing credentials. The applications themselves bring their own OS, just as if they were an appliance.

Lightbulb Why not Linux for OS?


I had seen most hardware vendors use Linux in their hardware & all over the place for reliability. They even use a ripped kernel in their storage. Even VMware they are using it for its stability. I always wonder why Linux can't replace windows though in the OS market. Just make me wonder .
