In our October issue, we had a great article called “Linux Print System at Cisco Systems, Inc.” by Damian Ivereigh. In it, Damian described how Cisco was using Linux, Samba and Netatalk to manage approximately 1,600 printers worldwide in mission-critical environments. He also described how he did it and supplied the source code he used, so that others could also benefit from this solution—a wonderful way to contribute to the Linux community.
Linux Journal uses Linux as its operating system of choice on all but one lone machine. For layout, we must have an MS Windows 95 machine in order to run QuarkXPress. Each month we hold our breath during the layout period hoping that when Windows crashes (it always does), it won't be at a critical juncture. Crashing for no apparent reason creates extra work for Lydia Kinata, our layout artist, and much stress for all of us each month. We are more than ready to be rid of this albatross and have a total Linux shop. Next, like everyone else, we'd like Adobe to port all its products to Linux.

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 The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model.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
