Product of the Day: Gwavix - Anti-Spam/Anti-Virus Solution
The past year the Linux market saw the entry of Novell to the marketplace. One of their products Groupwise an established email client has been ported to Linux as part of this major shift in strategy. It is natural that the Novell partners will also follow suit. GWAVIX , the first Linux-based Anti-Spam/Anti-Virus Solution for Novell GroupWise has been introduced by Gwava, a Montreal based company from Canada's La Belle province Quebec.
GWAVIX is deployed on dedicated hardware located at the SMTP gateway. GWAVIX uses multiple Anti-Virus engines to scan each email and deploys Anti-Spam Heuristics to insure the highest level of effectiveness against spam. GWAVIX and GWAVA are fully compatible and complimentary technologies. They are designed to run together in order to provide unparalleled protection for GroupWise from the inside and from the outside. GWAVIX can also be configured to reroute IMS.
GWAVIX is designed for organizations looking to move critical messaging infrastructure to the Linux platform. Linux provides a cost-effective OS platform that allows GWAVIX to deliver an automated email security solution. Automatic updates to GWAVIX guarantee that the Operating System, GWAVIX components, Anti-Virus updates and security patches are up to date.
GWAVIX has several Spam features allowing you to manage the load of unsolicited e-mails into your organization in a number of ways. Spam is a threat to some, an inconvenience to others. GWAVIX allows you to manage your Spam accordingly.
As e-mail passes through the GWAVIX unit, the header, subject line, sender and content is analyzed for known patterns found in unsolicited e-mails. Each e-mail is given a "spam status score" which is added to the e-mail's header. If the score is above a value of 4 it is likely to be Spam. If it's above 6 there is a very high probability that it is Spam.
GWAVIX gives you a flexible degree of control over your unsolicited e-mail. You can block entire domains from sending you e-mail, quarantine or add additional text to the subject line of e-mails tagged as Spam, or utilize the spam status scores in each e-mail header to filter unsolicited mail in detail using other applications, such as your mail agent.
GWAVIX has a number of e-mail blocking rules built into it. They include a list of attachment types commonly associated with viruses, a list of blocked subject lines and protection against MIME exploits. We understand that different businesses have different requirements, GWAVIX allows you to customize its blocking rules to meet your company's needs.
GWAVIX allows you to customize aspects of the service giving you the opportunity to manage the load of blocked or quarantined e-mails in a way that best suits your needs. You can customize the following:
Characteristics of warning e-mails
Warning sent to the intended recipient of a virus or illegal attachment
Warning sent to the sender of a virus or illegal attachment
Warning sent to the recipient of a quarantined Spam message
Footer appended to all incoming and outgoing e-mails
So if you are company that is sitting on the fence about Linux and you have been influenced by all the disinformation from Microsoft, you can look to Novell and their partners to provide you with an enterprise class Linux solution. You a can download a 30 day FREE trial of the GWAVIX software off their web site.
Practical Task Scheduling Deployment

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
