Many BLUGers have received the Linux Technical Resource Kit from Novell. The kit has 3 DVD's worth of software from Novell and Suse. One part of this software is Novell Nterprise Linux Services (NNLS). This is a port of many of Novell's flagship products, including eDirectory, iFolder, Netmail and Virtual Office, to run on a Linux server. I will show NNLS running on a Suse Enterprise Linux 8.0 server and go over some of the services that can be offered to a windows desktop client.
How to use little known, but top performing, lossless data compression utilities to increase backup and bandwidth capacities by up to 400%.
While Linux's best known data compressors may be "gzip" and "bzip2", my research has found that
"lzop" is faster, "7za" compresses more, and "rzip" achieves some of both with extra memory, which is becoming more and more affordable.
This meeting will be mainly focused on LinuxFest Northwest which is happening April 30th. here at BTC. We'll have our regular linux Q&A and linux news followed by Fest planning. Everyone is invited, and encouraged to participate.
