Simple question about application in other settings

taplinb's picture

Greetings,

I have tested at home K12LTSP, Sun Rays, and Windows Terminal Server, and a decade ago used Citrix Winframe for a couple of mid-sized projects (2-3 servers). I have long been curious about LTSP and the like in small corporate settings but was and am concerned about (a) long-term support, (b) scalability, and (c) software maintenance and distribution.

Regarding the latter, Debian packages have been, in my limited experience, the easiest way to deploy new Linux packages, and I particularly like the wrapping I've seen in MintInstall, part of the Mint offshoot of Ubuntu 8.

How might the MILLE Project address my three concerns. Also, is there enough support in English? I do not speak or read French.

Errata : firefox memory setting

Francis Giraldeau's picture

To prevent Firefox to use memory for caching, the article says to set the parameter browser.cache.memory.enable to "False", but it should be written to set this parameter to "True" to get this behavior.

For more information, see the page http://www.mille-xterm.org/en/TerminalMemoryUsage

Sorry for the mistake.

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.

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.
