Mission Critical Linux wins new customers

Mission Critical Linux has wooed several major customers to its services for keeping Linux servers up and running. Customers include storage giant EMC, Lucent Technologies and Sandia National Laboratories, the company said Wednesday. Mission Critical Linux competes with SteelEye Technology and Red Hat as well as traditional companies with software that keeps computing services available by letting one computer take over for a failed comrade. The start-up, based in Lowell, Mass., lured several Compaq Computer employees with experience in this "clustering" technology.
