IBM rolls out first Internet-based utility service

Here. "IBM on Monday rolled out an Internet-based service that allows Linux users to access the amount of processing power and other technical resources they need on a utility basis. The new on-demand service, called Linux Virtual Services, directly connects users' Linux-based server applications with IBM's hosting centers, which can supply them with managed server processing, storage, and networked capacity on an on-demand basis."
