Product of the Day: ShaoLin Aptus 2.0 Desktop Management Solution
Applications to help small business deploy Linux desktops in their organizations are being created. One of these is a "Fit Client" network solution from Shaolin Microsystems. This "Fit Client" network computing environment delivers centralized management, fully client-based computing ability, ultimate reliability and flexibility to Linux desktop.
Shaolin Microsystems solution includes the ShaoLin Aptus 2.0 Small Business server software. ShaoLin Aptus is a middleware that delivers the "Fit Client" network computing architecture by enabling a Linux server sharing its operating system and applications with multiple client PC's over LAN simultaneously and transparently. Once ShaoLin Aptus is installed on a Linux server, all networked client PC's can turn into the Linux-based fit clients in minutes without individual installations and even local hard drives.
However, the fit clients still retain their local independent processing power as traditional PC's to execute programs. This allows centralized desktop management that helps simplify storage management across the whole network. Since OS and applications are run on the clients, the system is flexible and scalable while delivering high-performance. It turns a heavy-administration desktop PC's network to a homogeneous diskless " Fit Client " network, which enhances the centralized management of thin client by fully client-based computing ability with extensive scalability and flexibility.
The network architecture enable organizations to deploy a multi-user desktop environment while managing thousands of desktops from a single location, ShaoLin Aptus eliminates the fundamental problems of PC's, but preserves hardware investment without forklift upgrades. It delivers zero-administration and dataless desktops with the highest level of manageability. Management routines are transparent to users, minimizing disruptions and keeping users working, not waiting. Users also can access their work environments and applications from any desktop or laptop. The solution increases manageability and availability of desktops to support daily business-critical operations, and helping staff to work more efficiency.
Open source Linux solutions already save organizations a tremendous amount over the license costs of proprietary software, ShaoLin Aptus promises to keep costs under control by providing unified desktop and network management to simplify the costly task of provisioning and managing user's data and applications across the enterprise. Our customers show that ShaoLin Aptus pays for itself less than six months and reducing desktop TCO more than 50% by minimizing downtime, cutting heavy administration cost, and increasing end-user productivity. Therefore, organizations can maximize the utilization of IT resources and leveraging their existing technology investments more effectively with rapid ROI.

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
