Wireless Portals with Wifidog

An easy Web-based captive Wi-Fi portal is great for users. A Web-based captive portal system that fits on a Linksys box is great for administrators too.

I work for a small London based WISP PolkaSpots Limited.

PolkaSpots has just launched a community Wi-Fi offering, which uses wifidog. We're hosting the captive portal solution on our own servers to give people the opportunity to set-up free Wi-Fi Hotspots around the world with minimum investment in hardware.

We need people around the globe to test the service for free. Places are limited to 250 for phase 1 of the trial and we've already had loads of requests.

What you need:

1. Router capable of running the dd-wrt firmware OR openwrt firmware. (Linksys WRT54G or similar)
2. An internet connection
3. Some customers to use it

There are no other requirements, we just want some feedback from you and your customers if possible.

Limited to 250 for obvious reasons so get a move on! We're snowed under with requests so don't be alarmed if we don't respond immediately. You can email pscwtrial@polkaspots.com for more info or to sign up.

Linux Management with Red Hat Satellite: Measuring Business Impact and ROI

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.

White Paper
Private PaaS for the Agile Enterprise

If you already use virtualized infrastructure, you are well on your way to leveraging the power of the cloud. Virtualization offers the promise of limitless resources, but how do you manage that scalability when your DevOps team doesn’t scale? In today’s hypercompetitive markets, fast results can make a difference between leading the pack vs. obsolescence. Organizations need more benefits from cloud computing than just raw resources. They need agility, flexibility, convenience, ROI, and control.

Stackato private Platform-as-a-Service technology from ActiveState extends your private cloud infrastructure by creating a private PaaS to provide on-demand availability, flexibility, control, and ultimately, faster time-to-market for your enterprise.
