Linux is an operating system that works on computer and servers. It’s similar to Windows, Windows XP and Mac OS X in that it manages the operation between your hardware and software.
Because Linux is code-based, it’s quite technical. We are currently one of only a few IT businesses in the Canberra region who support it.
Linux has a number of benefits, such as:
- High security
- Stability of the system
- Ability to customise
- Runs on any hardware
Certain software or applications require Linux, which is the main reason why a business would choose Linux over other operating systems for their server. Some of these businesses include: screen printing, embroidery, musical studios, educators, businesses that require certain databases, and more.
There are different variations of Linux, such as Red Hat Enterprise which was specifically designed for business.
If you know you want or need a Linux operating system on your server and/or desktop computers, or you’re not sure if Linux is the right choice for you, give us a call.
We will happily walk through the different options in operating systems, and the pros and cons as they relate to your business.
