Off the Grid Computing

Today an Aleutia E1 showed up on my desk. I'm passing it on to Gadget Guy Shawn Powers for a full review, but in the meanwhile wanted to share with you the basics.

The Aleutia's claim to fame?
* Zero technical know-how required.
* Small, silent, and built for harsh climates.
* Available with portable solar panel, low-power LCD, and 14-hour battery for deployment anywhere.

Sadly the box we received was sans solar panel... too bad, we so wanted to go "off the grid". Another day.

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
