If you are an e-book fan in North America, Kindles or NOOKs probably are the among the first devices that come to mind. If the Berlin-based txtr has its way, however, you soon may find yourself reading e-books on the company's new beagle e-book reader. The txtr beagle, with its 5" screen, 1/4" profile and 4.5oz weight, is billed as the smallest and lightest e-book reader on the market. txtr says the beagle will run for a year on AAA batteries and does not require cables or chargers. It is the first companion reader to receive e-books sent from a smartphone, says the device developer. The Android-based txtr beagle is part of the overall Adobe-certified txtr eReading platform, but does not count as an extra device. txtr believes that these characteristics, as well as a price point for telecom providers potentially as low as $13.00, are the raw materials for a truly global, mass-market e-book reader.

As Linux continues to play an ever increasing role in corporate data centers and institutions, ensuring the integrity and protection of these systems must be a priority. With 60% of the world's websites and an increasing share of organization's mission-critical workloads running on Linux, failing to stop malware and other advanced threats on Linux can increasingly impact an organization's reputation and bottom line.
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.
