IBM allows WebSphere to work with Linux

IBM Corp.'s newest version of its WebSphere Application Server will be the first capable of running on both the Linux operating system and IBM's own Power4 processors.

The Web application integration platform will work on IBM's high-end pSeries and midrange iSeries servers, which are equipped with the dual-chip Power4 processors.

WebSphere previously ran on either Linux or on servers equipped with Power4 CPUs, but not on a combination of the two, IBM spokeswoman Laurie Friedman said.

WebSphere Application Server 5.0.2 goes on sale July 15 at a list price of $10,000 per processor. Network development and enterprise versions of the software, which run on the largest platforms, will be priced at $15,000 and $30,000 per CPU.
