HP has increased Linux distribution support options for customers and expanded its portfolio to include support for Debian Linux.
The company also introduced integrated open source middleware offerings for its channel partners.
HP began working with Debian in 1995 and now enables Debian Linux across HP ProLiant and HP BladeSystem servers. The move complements HP’s support for Red Hat, Novell SUSE and the Asianux foundation of Miracle, Red Flag and Haansoft.
During the LinuxWorld conference HP also announced the industry’s first Debian Linux customizable thin client from a tier-one vendor. The new HP t5725 Thin Client can be customized with thousands of Debian applications to meet the requirements of both mainstream users and specialized industries, such as retail and healthcare. The t5725 also is an ideal solution for kiosk environments.
Also the Linux on blade solutions offered through the HP BladeSystem Solution Builder Program now include a tested solution stack for Oracle Database 10g with Real Application Clusters and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 for the HP ProLiant BL25p and BL45p server blades.
