HaL Software Systems has announced the availability of Ishmail (Information SuperHighway Mail), a multi-media electronic mail tool for Unix systems. Ishmail features a Motif graphical user interface and extensive support for MIME (the Internet standard for multi-media mail). Extensive on-line help, including a user's guide which can be viewed on-line on the World Wide Web (www.hal.com/products/sw), combined with an industry-standard user interface, make this product very easy to learn and to use. Ishmail is available on a variety of Unix platforms, including Linux, SunOS, Solaris, AIX, HP-UX, DEC OSF/1 and Novell UnixWare. Compatibility with the most common Unix mail-folder formats ensures easy transition for new users and coexistence with other e-mail programs.
In addition to on-line documentation, Ishmail utilizes the Internet for distribution and technical support. The product can be down-loaded from HaL's ftp server (ftp.halsoft.com) with a 30-day free, no-obligation evaluation license. If the product is purchased, a permanent license is delivered by e-mail. A single-user license is $99. Multi-user discounts, educational discounts and site licenses are also available.

Until recently, IBM’s Power Platform was looked upon as being the system that hosted IBM’s flavor of UNIX and proprietary operating system called IBM i. These servers often are found in medium-size businesses running ERP, CRM and financials for on-premise customers. By enabling the Power platform to run the Linux OS, IBM now has positioned Power to be the platform of choice for those already running Linux that are facing scalability issues, especially customers looking at analytics, big data or cloud computing.
￼Running Linux on IBM’s Power hardware offers some obvious benefits, including improved processing speed and memory bandwidth, inherent security, and simpler deployment and management. But if you look beyond the impressive architecture, you’ll also find an open ecosystem that has given rise to a strong, innovative community, as well as an inventory of system and network management applications that really help leverage the benefits offered by running Linux on Power.Get the Guide
