Linux Journal Issue #174/October 2008

This month's focus is Languages. Parlez-Vous Français? Wait, not those types of languages, programming languages. We've got a few different ones this time around: Inform, Sleep and Falcon. And, on a more traditional front, Guido Van Rossum talks about Python 3000. Our monthly columns also include discussions of JavaScript, PHP using Eclipse, and bash, and Chef Marcel talks about languages more generally. On other fronts, if you're interested in audio, we've got part II of Dave Phillips' Linux Audio series; Kyle Rankin shows you how to connect some musical instruments to your system and use them with a number of audio programs; and Dan Sawyer shows you where to store all that audio data in his review of the HP Media Valut. All that and more in this month's issue of Linux Journal.

Linux Management with Red Hat Satellite: Measuring Business Impact and ROI

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.
