OpenLinux Server 64 to Supplement AIX 5L
OREM, UT-June 7, 2001- Caldera International Inc. (Nasdaq: CALD), the global
leader "Unifying UNIX with Linux for Business," today announced the
availability of its OpenLinux Server 64 preview, a fully functional snapshot
of 64-bit Linux for Intel(r) Itanium(tm)-based systems. General availability
of OpenLinux Server 64 is scheduled for late third quarter 2001.
Caldera OpenLinux Server 64 delivers an enterprise class Linux server
platform for Intel Itanium-based systems. OpenLinux Server 64 provides
proven, high-quality Internet services such as web servers, file and print
servers and network infrastructure, as well as the performance platform for
Linux enterprise solutions. OpenLinux Server 64 represents the culmination
of efforts by Caldera and other members of the IA-64 Linux project to craft
a 64-bit operating system for the next generation of Standard High Volume

Caldera's 64-bit Linux offering complements its recently announced AIX(r) 5L
technology - a UNIX system solution for Itanium based systems. The
combination of AIX 5L with Linux affinity feature and OpenLinux Server 64
provide the industry with the most complete suite of platforms to deploy
Linux solutions on Itanium based processors.
"Itanium systems represent the next generation of high-end computing
platforms," said Ransom Love, CEO of Caldera. "OpenLinux Server 64
supplements Caldera's range of platforms that span from desktop to data
center. As a Linux leader, we have the expertise to provide an operating
system such as OpenLinux Server 64 that exploits Itanium's capacity of
supporting mission-critical business applications."
"Itanium-based systems deliver world-class operation for the most demanding
enterprise and high-performance computing applications," said Victor Krutul,
manager of Software Programs at Intel. "Caldera OpenLinux Server 64 will
provide business-focused customers with a smooth migration path to deploy
Itanium systems as their application needs grow."
