Linux Buyer's Guide Launches: Linux Journal Introduces Its New On-Line Resource
The print edition of the Linux Buyer's Guide has always been a hit with Linux enthusiasts around the world, and this year we are excited to introduce the guide as an on-line resource. Free to all, this comprehensive directory of services and products will allow users to effortlessly search Linux-related products and companies.
Linux Journal Editor in Chief Richard Vernon commented, "With the ubiquity of Linux, the number of Linux-related products is growing exponentially and keeping track of them is certainly no easy task. The Linux Buyer's Guide brings together information on thousands of Linux-related products -- everything from server hardware to games. By switching our Buyer's Guide from a print to an on-line format, we can ensure the information is up-to-date and easily searchable."
Vendors and maintainers of free software wishing to list their products and services in the Linux Buyer's Guide can do so for free, and will now have the ability to update their listings as often as needed, with a minimum of once per calendar year to ensure accuracy.

Practical Task Scheduling Deployment
July 20, 2016 12:00 pm CDT
One of the best things about the UNIX environment (aside from being stable and efficient) is the vast array of software tools available to help you do your job. Traditionally, a UNIX tool does only one thing, but does that one thing very well. For example, grep is very easy to use and can search vast amounts of data quickly. The find tool can find a particular file or files based on all kinds of criteria. It's pretty easy to string these tools together to build even more powerful tools, such as a tool that finds all of the .log files in the /home directory and searches each one for a particular entry. This erector-set mentality allows UNIX system administrators to seem to always have the right tool for the job.
Cron traditionally has been considered another such a tool for job scheduling, but is it enough? This webinar considers that very question. The first part builds on a previous Geek Guide, Beyond Cron, and briefly describes how to know when it might be time to consider upgrading your job scheduling infrastructure. The second part presents an actual planning and implementation framework.

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
