Dell's Dimension E510n

Tired of shelling out those hidden Microsoft license fees bundled into the name-brand desktops you buy, only to blow away XP and install Linux instead? Dell's Dimension E510n ships with an absolutely blank hard drive and no pesky tribute to Redmond, Washington in the price. Systems start at $849 US, which will nab you a Pentium 4 630, 512MB of DDR2 RAM, an ATI RADEON X300SE graphics card and an 80GB SATA drive, all in a mini-tower design that Dell claims reduces noise. According to a Dell representative, Linux users will see a savings of $30–$50 US per unit over equivalent systems packages with XP Home.

QCD Microsystems Interstructures Product

Administering a Samba Primary Domain Controller (PDC) can tax the skills of even a seasoned Linux sysadmin. QCD Microsystems has added PDC management to their Interstructures product, allowing them to be created using a GUI-based interface. According to QCD, users with no previous Samba training will be able to set up a new PDC within minutes. The Interstructures product already provides a graphical front end for tasks such as DNS, DHCP, firewall and Sendmail configuration.

Webinar
Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
