Linux Ready for Primetime PeopleSoft Inc. (Nasdaq: PSFT) today announced a strategic joint development initiative with IBM Corp.

PeopleSoft has selected IBM eServer xSeries, DB2 Universal Database and WebSphere Application Server as its Linux development platform of choice. Companies running mission-critical PeopleSoft applications on Linux and IBM eServer xSeries systems will benefit from improvements in performance, reliability and manageability for core business applications.

“Linux is ready for primetime – it is now capable of running mission-critical applications,” said Rick Bergquist, chief technology officer, PeopleSoft. “We’re teaming with IBM to deliver PeopleSoft applications in a Linux environment, which gives our customers greater choice and is another milestone in our commitment to open standards.”

PeopleSoft customers now have the option to go with this reliable, low-cost operating system to streamline business processes and develop an open, on-demand environment that enables greater responsiveness to customers and suppliers,” said Steve Mills, senior vice president and group executive, IBM Software Group. “Building on our strategic alliance, this agreement represents the broadest commitment to deliver industry-leading solutions using IBM hardware and software for Linux by an application partner to date.”
