Free Consultants List

Every now and then I like to remind y'all about the Unix and Linux consultants list we maintain here. It's absolutely free to list yourself here if you are offering any Unixish services, including building websites on Unix/Linux/Mac OSX, programming in any of those, offering consulting, etc. Just send me the information requested at Find a Consultant and I will add your listing.

Sun and Open Source  
- I guess I really just don't trust corporations. Sun's goal is income, not producing open source. -

MySQL Cluster setup and HowTo   2010/03/18 anonymous
- MySQL Cluster Server is a fault-tolerant, redundant, scalable database architecture built on the open-source MySQL application, and capable of delivering 99.999% reliability. -

Definitely Not an Answer to Questions about Solaris 10  
- Sun's Common Development and Distribution License (CDDL) was published this week. It's a license for.. well, that's the point: Sun isn't saying. They've offered a license, but haven't said what products it will cover. -

Sun and open source   2012/06/17 TonyLawrence
- Can you make money with open source? I think yes, but that doesn't mean many will try it. Had Unix vendors understood what their greed and short-sightedness would eventually cause, maybe they would have opened up way back when. But they didn't. -

N1 Grid Containers: Tech Words the Day  
- This is Sun's awful name for their server virtualization capability in Solaris 10. This lets you set up up to 4,000 virtual Solaris machines which use a common kernel (thus meaning one point for kernel patches,etc) but having their own IP address, memory, file area, host name, and root password. -

ncftp - a better ftp client  
- The advantages of ncftp include automatic resumption of failed downloads and ease of working through firewalls. -

Open Source Network Administration  
- Many tools for monitoring, and troubleshooting networks are included; Sysmon, Oak, Neo, MRTG, tcpdump, netstat, traceroute, etc.. are all covered. -

Solaris Software Express  
- Sun really is bending over backwards for the development community. If you are interested in Solaris (that's Solaris for x86 too), you can get free evaluation and educational use licensing, and if you want development support it's a lousy $99.00 a year, which is just ridiculously cheap. -

Pricing the Hidden Costs of Unix, Linux, and Windows  
- Total cost of ownership for Unix, Linux, and Windows: Analyst firms have been releasing total cost of ownership calculations for leading operating systems, with Linux and Windows neck-in-neck for the low end, and Unix numbers somewhere up in the stratosphere. The question is, will standard TCO measurements still be relevant as we move into an impending era of utility, on-demand, and grid computing? -

Unix Unleashed  
- This book covers Unix by using both Solaris and Red Hat as examples. And that's the problem: this is really two pretty good 500 page books. -

kill -l on Solaris -->Re SunOS & SCO differencekill -l 132  
- The "kill" command is often a shell builtin, which can confuse people because it may work differently on different systems; -
