Ride in the Himalayas

While I was working in Bangalore, India, I started a Royal Enfield Bullet Owner's group (bullet-bangalore.org) and a few of our guys rode to the Himalayas on their bikes. They saw this interesting banner on the only tea stall at Himank, the world's highest motorable road, put up by another group of bikers before them. Take a look. The picture was taken by Sandeep Menon. —VaibhaV Sharma

Another Happy Reader

Here's a photo of my son Merit (about 26-months old) sitting on his trusty fire truck checking out my July 2005 issue of LJ. When he was done, he went back into the office and picked up an Advanced C Programming book! --Tim

Mmmmm Cake

Planning a big wedding is HARD. Two things I planned were having Larry Ewing's Tux on my cake (Linux is part of my life and my job) and a helicopter to take my bride and me from the ceremony to the reception. Kelly, my bride, was all for having Tux—she made the switch to Linux before I did.

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

Linux has become a key foundation for supporting today's rapidly growing IT environments. 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.
