Using Linux in a Training Environment
Once a solid proposal has been constructed, present your case. Try to leave a solid impression of Linux with your attendees. Some key Linux points to hit on include:
Availability of tools and software solutions
Network capabilities (TCP/IP, IPX, AX.25, etc.)
Unfortunately, most folks still perceive Linux as a toy. In your presentation, be sure to point out the efforts of major industry players, such as Caldera and WordPerfect. Let them know that Linux is quite capable of providing a solid solution for your organization.
Linux is a viable solution platform. Our nationwide network of training centers is a living testament to that statement. With the proper direction, its proliferation in the workplace can continue on an upward trend. The Linux operating system reminds me of an expansion baseball team. It has a lot of fans, but nowhere near the fan base of an established and proven team. It is young and full of promise, and one day, just maybe, it will win the pennant.

Free Webinar: Linux Backup and Recovery
Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.
In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
