Consolidation Test of LAMP Applications on an IBM BladeCenter JS22 Express Server
To implement Web applications, many IT shops have turned to the Linux operating system (OS) and the popular LAMP Web middleware stack. The LAMP Web middleware stack, which stands for Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP / Perl / Python, has become a defacto standard platform for developing and deploying Web applications on the Linux operating system. Today, Web serving is the largest single workload on the Linux OS. The Linux OS provides companies with the widest range of server platforms to choose from, helping ensure each installation is perfectly suited to meet the challenge. The popular Linux OS distributions from Red Hat and Novell support the IBM System p and BladeCenter JS22 Express platforms.
