IBM expands job description for Linux exec

Corporate Linux manager Jim Stallings will now oversee three complex computing initiatives, too.

Jim Stallings, who has been general manager of corporate Linux at IBM, has taken over several other initiatives as well, IBM said Friday.

In a promotion that took effect earlier this week, Stallings now is general manager of strategic growth initiatives, assuming responsibility for IBM's grid computing initiative, the pooling of widely distributed groups of computer resources; virtualization, a process of abstraction that makes computer hardware more flexible; and deep computing, IBM's effort to solve cutting-edge problems that tax computers to the utmost.
