Fame Information Services, a provider of historical and reference data management solutions, has expanded its supported platforms to include Linux.
Announcing the move, Fame's CEO, Dale Richards, comments: "Fame sees Linux as a reliable enterprise solution, with an attractive value proposition of driving down costs for our clients."
In addition to Linux, Fame's core database product and accompanying client tools support Sun Solaris, Windows, HP-UX and AIX.
Richards continues: "Our customers have told us that they consider Linux ready for mission-critical applications...Linux will enable them to save money on operating system licenses and deploy less expensive hardware."
Industry analyst firm, Meta Group, predicts that by 2007, Linux will run on 45% of new servers.
