Linux's advantages in cost/performance on PRIMEQUEST

Advantages of 64-bit Linux

Linux's advantages in cost/performance, transparency and compatibility with popular open sourced software has already seen it penetrate the markets for Web and application infrastructure. However, its use in mission-critical environments has been limited due to concerns of performance, scalability and support. Now, the combination of PRIMEQUEST and the 64-bit Linux Kernel 2.6 have comprehensively solved these issues, making Linux solution's suitable for adoption as mission critical systems.
