Linux Journal Announces January Networking & Telecom Issue

SEATTLE, WA -- SSC Publications, publisher of the award-winning monthly magazine Linux Journal, is pleased to announce the release of the January Linux Journal (number 105), the annual networking and telecom issue.

"Our readers will agree that Linux Journal's new editor in chief, Don Marti, has clearly hit his stride in this issue," commented Carlie Fairchild, VP of Marketing & Sales. "This is the third issue with Don at the helm, and he's orchestrated a real power-house collection of content in the networking and telecom spaces. On the networking side, this issue covers OpenACS for enterprise-level Web apps, VPN tunnels for secure wireless and WAN connections, zero-copy optimization in Linux and articles on IPv6 in various contexts. On the telecom side, our readers will find content on journaled file systems and much more. Of course Linux Journal never forgets the fun stuff. We've included an article on how Digital Domain studio used Linux to render special effects in films such as Star Trek Nemesis, as well as the hottest new software and add-ons for the Zaurus PDA."

As always, the January issue will contain Linux Journal's standard articles and columns, including Cooking with Linux by Marcel Gagne, At the Forge with Reuven M. Lerner, Paranoid Penguin and many others that cover every facet of Linux.

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.
