New Webmistress
A couple of months ago Linux Journal was lucky enough to have Katherine Druckman join our team in the position of Webmaster (and she quickly changed her title to Webmistress which is one of thousand reasons we love her). Katherine is working hard to enrich with features galore while still maintaining it's new crisp, clean and intuitive design. We wouldn't have all of the above new features to announce if it wasn't for Katherine so I just wanted to take a quick moment to publicly thank her for all of her hard work. Thanks, Katherine!

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.
