Second Symposium on Operating Systems Design and Implementation

Cynthia Deno, the Exhibition and Publicity Coordinator for USENIX at The UNIX and Advanced Computing Systems Technical and Professional Association, writes us that there has been a change in the dates of the symposium from those given in the September 1995 issue of LJ.

The Program Committee is currently seeking papers describing original work concerning the design, implementation and use of modern operating systems. Besides mature work, we encourage submissions describing exceptionally promising, well-grounded speculative work, or enlightening negative results. For submission guidelines, please contact the program chairs at osdi@cs.rice.edu.

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.
