Born in Toronto, Canada, David started with SlackWare back in the early 1990s, picked up the O'Reilly distribution of what was one of the first commercial Red Hat distributions and the rest is history. Since then, he has integrated Linux into NetWare, Windows and Unix environments and vice versa, working from single monster machines to purpose built systems from clustered web services to DNS to basic file and print.

Lately he has been focusing on Red Hat and Fedora based distributions. You will not find him on Facebook and he has not tweeted in more than six months. You will find him in the #linuxjournal channel during the week and he shares his thoughts on the world of Open Source, especially the challenges of the heterogenous environment on the Linux Journal web site.

One Click, Universal Protection: Implementing Centralized Security Policies on Linux Systems

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.
