Linux in Enterprise Network Management

Providing network information to customers on an Intranet saves both time and money for this international chemical company.
Summary

Our customers feel they can do their job better now that they can access real-time network information with their browser. A telephone call to a human operator sitting in front of his expensive network management workstation cannot give them this service. We also feel that open-source tools and in-house scripts can be easily maintained and secured for a corporate environment.

We are expanding our use of the Linux platform into new applications such as directory services, log file management and network traffic analysis.

As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.
