LinuxForce Inc. Launches New Company, AdminForce Remote LLC
Boulder, CO March 29, 2001 AdminForce Remote LLC has been formed as a new, spin-off company from its parent, LinuxForce Inc., and Christopher J. Fearnley has been named president and chief technology officer of the new company.
Announcement of the corporate decision was made here today by Charles B. Fleming, chairman and chief executive officer of LinuxForce Inc.
"The split into two companies is market driven and separates development from maintenance functions," Fleming said. "The focus on reducing product and service costs to customers made it clear these goals could best be met by activities derived from different skill sets," he said.
Fearnley has served as executive vice president and chief of technology at LinuxForce since its inception. He has been involved as a leader in the Linux and Debian GNU/Linux communities for eight years.
Fearnley said the new entity is focused on on-going systems maintenance to provide a low cost per managed server.
He said the family of AdminForce Remote products and services provide systems administration, monitoring and a sophisticated automated reporting system for Linux-based Enterprise Web Platforms, e-commerce systems, and other enterprise servers.
Fearnley said "the product line and services can be delivered at new levels of savings for IT customers."
"AdminForce Remote is focused on providing the technical and customer support infrastructure needed for large-scale application of the remote systems management procedures that LinuxForce developed," Fearnley said.
"By focusing on this infrastructure, we can lower costs and increase quality for systems management that was not possible before," he said.
"The new company's focused sales and support staff will be able to meet the needs of our on-going clientele more efficiently," Fearnley said.
