Linux Means Business to the City of Garden Grove
Without Linux and Samba, the project could never have come in within budget nor made the time-line for the move. In just a few short months, the City switched from a mini-computer with dumb terminals to a total network environment. The Linux machines run 24 hours a day and have proven to be very stable and reliable. Our thanks go out to all the Internet community for providing such a wonderful environment.
The city now has over 300 486 and Pentium PC92s running WFW, Microsoft Office and Netscape Navigator. All are connected with 10baseT Ethernet cards (NE2000 and 3COM). Microsoft Telnet is used to connect to the Pick Server for legacy applications.
Linux servers are Intel-based Pentiums (100-133) with 64MB RAM, (2) 1GB SCSI drives and a 2GB DAT tape drive.
Printers are all HP LaserJets connected with an internal Jet Direct Card (Ethernet).
The network includes Category 5 cable with a Fiber Optic backbone, T1 line to Public Services, and 1544 Kbps Frame Relay to the Internet, 3COM hubs, patch panels and switch, Prelude and ADC DSU/CSU92s, and a Cisco Router.
The Informations Services staff consists of a manager, 2 systems analysts and a technician. Robert Shingledecker is the Information Systems Manager for the city of Garden Grove, California. He has written early machine code and assembly language programs. He uses the Internet regularly to research solutions for the city's IS needs and future developments. He can be reached at email@example.com. The authors are the systems analysts. Victor Chang, Information Systems Technician, supports the PC client's needs—he installs and supports software (Windows, MS Office, Netscape, etc.), troubleshoots and fixes hardware problems.
Pyng Chang is a Senior Systems Analyst with the city of Garden Grove, California. Both authors have Pick OS backgrounds, and have gradually moved into the Unix and PC environment since the inception of the project. They are both involved with all aspects of Unix network administration, and are currently writing the GUI interface to the Pick routines with the HTML, CGI and Perl.

Getting Started with DevOps - Including New Data on IT Performance from Puppet Labs 2015 State of DevOps Report

DevOps represents a profound change from the way most IT departments have traditionally worked: from siloed teams and high-anxiety releases to everyone collaborating on uneventful and more frequent releases of higher-quality code. It doesn't matter how large or small an organization is, or even whether it's historically slow moving or risk averse — there are ways to adopt DevOps sanely, and get measurable results in just weeks.
