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 Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
