Fedora in the Office
Fedora 7 was used for hands one and studying for earning the Linux+. Coming form a Windows world it was hard. Studied and prepared hard then failed. Studied harder-then pasted.
My question: I would like to deploy Fedora 9 to an office of 10-15 office professionals but how do I control their desktops from a centralized location.
Windows uses Active Directory for user accounts and group policies etc...
SUSE has Zenworks and other tools to manage computers on your LAN.
I haven't heard how Fedora manages computers/users remotely.
Fedora is great on a single computer but beyond that..?
I need to be able to have control similar to group policies and WSUS.
Last month I started looking at SUSE because of this issue.
Would prefer Fedora.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
