IBM Corp. claims it will enable DB2 database software users to build Linux clusters on IBM servers more quickly and cheaply than before with a new package of hardware and software, the company announced Monday.

Clusters allow users to grow computing resources without purchasing large, expensive servers, Jones said. Certain customers, such as life sciences companies, will always need powerful supercomputers, but many companies can benefit from clusters, he said. The DB2 for Linux Clustering package is targeted at the financial, retail, manufacturing, and public sector industries, he said.
