Who Let the Carnivores Out?
Hushmail is a free e-mail service that offers transparent, end-to-end encryption of your e-mail without requiring correspondents to install and use complicated software.
ZipLip closely resembles Hushmail. You can set a time limit on the messages that you send, so that they expire-- and can't be retrieved, even from the recipients' systems-- after the specified date.
1on1 is a commercial service and uses dedicated software, but it offers an additional, cool feature: You can remotely retract and delete mail that you decide, after sending, you shouldn't have sent.
GNU Privacy Guard is free software that offers strong encryption services to Linux users; GNUPG is increasingly supported by Linux-based e-mail packages.

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
