Linux Journal Erroneously Announced Win at LinuxWorld Show Favorite Award

SEATTLE, WA -- During the recent LinuxWorld Conference & Expo held in New York's Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, the Linux Journal staff experienced a serious miscommunication and made an erroneous announcement. Linux Journal did not win the Best Publication award as previously announced. We should like to correct this mistake, and offer sincere apologies.

Best Publication was not a category in the popular Show Favorites Awards program of LinuxWorld Conference & Expo, owned and produced by IDG World Expo. We also reported the winners were chosen by show attendees. The winners, however, were selected by a panel of industry experts who recognized product and service innovation and solutions in open computing being offered by exhibitors.

We appreciate the community's continued support of Linux Journal.

Linux Management with Red Hat Satellite: Measuring Business Impact and ROI

Linux has become a key foundation for supporting today's rapidly growing IT environments. Linux is being used to deploy business applications and databases, trading on its reputation as a low-cost operating environment. For many IT organizations, Linux is a mainstay for deploying Web servers and has evolved from handling basic file, print, and utility workloads to running mission-critical applications and databases, physically, virtually, and in the cloud. 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.

If you already use virtualized infrastructure, you are well on your way to leveraging the power of the cloud. Virtualization offers the promise of limitless resources, but how do you manage that scalability when your DevOps team doesn’t scale? In today’s hypercompetitive markets, fast results can make a difference between leading the pack vs. obsolescence. Organizations need more benefits from cloud computing than just raw resources. They need agility, flexibility, convenience, ROI, and control.
