100 Linux Machines
I had a thought recently, and decided to share it. I'm going to post it to my local LUG and I urge others to do the same. It's a bit of a social exercise, there's no right or wrong answer, only opinions.
What would you do with 100 Linux machines? I mean, let's take them for granted. In other words, the OS is there, assume they all have the same distribution. They're all secured, and are connected to the public internet. They're also geographically diverse. Some may be "real" hardware, some may be virtual machines, others some sort of service like Amazon's EC2. But all the hardware is just about the same.
We all know what people like Google would do, as they've done it. But what would *you* do. Another way to ask the question is, what do you think the world needs right now?
Linux is an abundant building material. Imagine you're trapped on an island with all the natural resources you'll ever need. The natives are willing to help. What do you do?

In modern computer systems, privacy and security are mandatory. However, connections from the outside over public networks automatically imply risks. One easily available solution to avoid eavesdroppers’ attempts is SSH. But, its wide adoption during the past 21 years has made it a target for attackers, so hardening your system properly is a must.
Additionally, in highly regulated markets, you must comply with specific operational requirements, proving that you conform to standards and even that you have included new mandatory authentication methods, such as two-factor authentication. In this ebook, I discuss SSH and how to configure and manage it to guarantee that your network is safe, your data is secure and that you comply with relevant regulations.Get the Guide
