TurboLinux's New Cluster Server 6 Powers Leading Language Translation Website

WorldLingo builds global ASP business on TurboLinux and Dell Poweredge Servers.

SAN FRANCISCO, October 23, 2000 - TurboLinux®, Inc., the high-performance Linux company, today announced that WorldLingo, the leader in foreign-language e-mail translation, is using TurboLinux Cluster Server 6 and Dell Poweredge Servers as the clustering infrastructure for its booming new Web business.

WorldLingo, with offices in four countries, currently runs its business on three clusters, all using Dell PowerEdge 2450 servers running TurboLinux Cluster Server 6. One cluster hosts WorldLingo's Apache Web servers, another is running the company's application servers and the third is home to the servers that do the actual translations.

"As a start-up, cost and stability were big consideration when we were deciding what technology to launch," said Phil Scanlan, Chairman for WorldLingo "TurboLinux provided us with an affordable solution that can handle a high volume of traffic and scale easily."

"WorldLingo is a great example of a company which needed a flexible, high-availability solution at an affordable price," said Rok Sosic, CTO for TurboLinux. "TurboLinux Cluster Server 6 is a robust, secure and highly available solution that continues to power a growing number of highly trafficked dot-coms."

TurboLinux's Cluster Server 6 offers customers one of the most affordable and robust web clustering solutions on the market. The new TurboLinux application further demonstrates TurboLinux's commitment to customers and to pioneering technology innovations within the high availability and scalability space.

TurboLinux has added more than 20 new powerful features, building upon the award-winning technology of its original TurboCluster Server 4.0, honored by Linux Journal in 1999 as the Best Web Solution and picked as Best Product for Enterprise Customers at the prestigious IT 2000 Sydney
