User Recommendations Users planning Linux implementation(s) will be heartened by IBM's continuing commitment to provide it across the product line. Once IBM takes the next step (as described above), it will make life even easier for Linux-philes, especially if they are current IBM customers. The other area of interest is the S/390. Although mainframes are not for everyone, they clearly serve a purpose for large back office installations, such as that

Server and Desktop Solutions: What the Research Means for Small and Medium Enterprises


Different types of organizations show distinct preferences when assigning importance to the criteria on which to base their operating system selection. Small and medium enterprises need to carefully analyze the available data to accurately evaluate their strategic IT investments.

Unlike universities, which tend to use free software without warranties, the business sector assigns equal priority to the total cost of ownership (TCO) and warranty variables. One explanation for this may be that CO is much more important to universities than to SMEs, and that universities assign the highest weight to free solutions. These findings suggest that because of the Read More

Red Hat Summit 2014: Open Source at the Forefront of IT

Red Hat Heads for the Cloud with OpenShift


It would be an understatement to say that Red Hat is an interesting enterprise software company. Since its founding in 1994 and initial public offering (IPO) in 1999, the vendor has focused on businesses and divisions thereof that embrace open-source computing tools.

Other lock-ins come from the lack of choice of hosting facility and no choice of operational management style. In contrast, figure 5 shows the Read More

In addition, this announcement may cause Microsoft to reduce prices significantly for its non-CE operating systems, although we think that unlikely (25% probability).

Methods of Linux Bare-metal Restore and Disaster Recovery


When it comes to disaster recovery (DR) software, companies should think of it as an insurance policy—not just software that recovers lost data. Being prepared for disaster makes good business sense, but oddly enough, few companies are. Because Linux distributions don’t include DR tools, companies must look to a file-based recovery solution that can recover the entire system and eliminate the need to rebuild.
