Enterprise solution provider Planet
Intra Wednesday bundled its “instant Intranet” software for small and
medium-size enterprises with Donovan’s Penguin 64 Lite — a 64-bit
server running the Linux operating system.
Linux systems developer Donovan plans to pre-install the software on 18,000
servers annually, providing customers with a 10-user license and the ability
to add users for a small fee.
Donovan’s Penguin 64 Lite is built using a Sun Ultra AXe motherboard with
integrated 300-megahertz UltraSPARC-IIi CPU, and is ideal for
use as an Internet or intranet server to host high-traffic Web sites,
thousands of mail boxes or a busy database.
Planet Intra’s intranet allows users to organize and group information in a
format that is easily accessible by all team members. Planet Intra also
provides users with a calendar, contact manager and highly efficient search
engine that enables users to scan their Intranet knowledge base and retrieve
The Planet Intra software package runs on the NT and Unix, including Linux
and Solaris operating systems, and is available through the company’s Web
site. Additionally, Planet Intra recently made its intranet software
available in 16 languages, including Japanese, Chinese, English, French,
German, Spanish and Italian.
“SMEs today need the ability to collaborate globally in a timely manner, and
Planet Intra provides an affordable solution that was
typically only available to larger enterprises.” said Michael Peretz,
international sales manager, Planet Intra.
Donovan designs and manufactures the Penguin64 server system, which runs on
Linux and is powered by a 64-bit chip.
