Linux in Camouflage
The Leader Development Center's computer training facility is a networked suite of twelve student systems and one instructor system. A 42-inch Mitsubishi monitor allows the students to easily follow the instructor.
The classes are kept small, with two instructors for twelve students. The students who attend training at the LDC are the key staff and trainers for their division. Our low student-faculty ratio ensures that the students master the concepts and skills required to successfully use these systems with their home units. The student success rate has been extremely high. Some of those who have attended are currently using Linux on their home or business systems or, are systems administrators on Unix or other systems.
Using equipment and software provided by the Leader Development Center, each division has established its own training facility and program. The experience from these division training programs is providing the basis for fine tuning the LDC program for implementation in the other National Guard Divisions.
The use of Linux has accelerated the development and issuance of computer systems to the National Guard and U.S. Army. The decreased cost of hardware and software actually makes the systems affordable. Without Linux, these complex and important systems would not be available.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
