IBM's PowerLinux is the combination of a Linux-based operating system running on IBM Power Architecture technology. This combination produces a customizable system capable of handling large quantities of data more efficiently without the need for additional hardware. To determine real world performance, we composed a test scenario with two comparable systems running large database operations. This test also shows that Linux can be an abstraction layer on different types of hardware that are better at running certain workloads.

OpenStack started out as an open source project by RackSpace and NASA in 2010. It was designed to enable any organization to run cloud services on standard hardware. IT industry companies like AMD, Intel, Red Hat, Cisco, Dell, HP, IBM, VMware, Yahoo and a bunch of others have joined the project. OpenStack is a suite of interrelated software packages that control processing, storage and networking resources throughout a datacenter. Administrators can manage these resources through a web accessible dashboard, and users can provision resources themselves. All of the code for OpenStack is freely available under the Apache 2.0 license. Anyone can run it, build on it, or submit changes back to the project.

Or cater to specific needs easily, such as combinations of framework versions and databases.
Red Hat's Openshift is such a Platform-as-a-Service, ready for production after two years of beta testing.
