LinuxForce Launches Three New Educational
Initiatives for Business Leaders
Philadelphia, PA 20 October 2009 LinuxForce, Inc., a
leading information technology services firm and a thought leader
in the management of Linux and Free and Open Source Software (FOSS),
today announced the launch of three new educational initiatives to help
organizations working to do more with technology at a lower cost.
The three new educational tools include a free seminar on
29 October 2009, an industry
blog and a website.
Each is focused on helping educate the business community about
effectively managing free and open source software (FOSS) to deliver
business results and lower costs.
In these tough economic times, the high cost of investing in and upgrading
expensive business software has become a source of increasing concern. The
growing industry move to Linux and FOSS has provided a reliable, secure,
lower cost alternative to more traditional software tools. LinuxForce
is dedicated to helping people understand the real power of open source
software so that more organizations can make the transition to Linux-based
"These three educational initiatives will help organizations
learn more about managing FOSS to lower costs and achieve business
results", says CJ Fearnley, LinuxForce's CEO. "The seminar,
blog and website will each provide
insights on the benefits of using a FOSS infrastructure."
The free educational seminar, entitled Managing
FOSS for Business Results, will be held on Thursday,
October 29, from 9 am to 12 pm, at The Franklin Institute in
Philadelphia, PA. A team of FOSS subject experts will share
information with attendees on how to leverage the benefits of FOSS
to achieve business results. Seating is limited, call 610-734-1900
or find out more on the event registration page, http://RemoteResponder.LinuxForce.net/2009.10.seminar.html.
The new LinuxForce
blog will address issues of concern to business, financial, and
technology leaders as well as provide commentary on the IT industry,
systems and network administration, and security. In addition to
its focus on the benefits of FOSS and on how to manage FOSS, the blog
will cover topics such as reviews of the best in breed FOSS and other
FOSS resources, installation, configuration, integration, automation,
delegation, migration, upgrades, and more.
The LinuxForce team has also launched a new website, RemoteResponder.LinuxForce.net
to explain the business benefits of professional management of FOSS.
FOSS encompasses thousands of applications and tools (including the Apache
web server, the Linux operating system, databases such as PostgreSQL and
MySQL, the Samba file server, Nagios for network monitoring); making
decisions about which to use and how to integrate them is made easier
with expert help. Our website documents some of the benefits that a
partnership with LinuxForce can provide.

their operational costs, or interested in finding out more about these
alternatives, the website,
