Linux and open-source software in general are among the fastest growing
areas of technology today. Renowned for its reliability, security, flexibility
and low resource requirements, Linux has been making steady in-roads into the
corporate IT environment for several years now as more and more people realise
the benefits of replacing or combining expensive proprietary software with free
Linux and open-source alternatives.
The backing that Linux has received in recent years from such corporate
heavyweights as IBM, HP and Sun only serves to confirm what some of us have
known for quite a while: Linux is now a truly viable alternative to Unix and
Microsoft for many business functions.
Examples of the sort of tasks for which Linux and open-source software have
proved to be viable solutions include:
- Web/proxy servers
- File and print servers
- Mail servers
- Virtual Private Network (VPN) gateways
- Domain Name Servers (DNS)
- Database servers
- The desktop

or are interested in migrating an existing system over to Linux, we can help.
Examples of the kind of consultancy services we can provide to your business
