LinMin(TM) Joins Intel(R) Certified Software Solutions Program

LinMin, provider of award-winning LinMin Bare Metal Provisioning(TM), today announced that it has joined the Intel(R) Certified Solutions Program where it is being validated for software security, interoperability, and Intel(R) multi-core processor compatibility. Certification will mean that LinMin customers who deploy, host or repurpose systems running Microsoft Windows(R) or open source operating systems such as Red Hat(R), Novell(R), Ubuntu(R), CentOS, Fedora or Asianux are buying and using a solution they can be more confident in.

"Being awarded the 'Intel Certified Powered by SpikeSource' logo will mean a major achievement for LinMin, as it provides increased confidence and trust for our end users and channel partners that LinMin Bare Metal Provisioning is secure, interoperable and enabled on Intel platforms," said Laurent Gharda, CEO and founder of LinMin Corp. "We also look forward to increased product demand now that we are part of the Intel Business Exchange, the online technology marketplace with global reach."

"The Intel(R) Certified Solutions Program delivers immediate business value," says J. Scott Harrison, director Partner Programs Organization for Intel. "Program members can quickly take advantage of advanced Intel technologies and create more secure solutions without committing additional development resources, helping them to improve competitive advantage in the marketplace."
