Linux @ Adiscon
Written 2005-08-03 by Rainer Gerhards.
Adiscon offers Linux-based solutions, too! While our software products
since ca. 1997 were focussed on the Microsoft Windows platform, Adiscon and its
staff has always been fluent with a number of Unices. Since 2004, Adiscon is
rapidly moving solutions into the Linux area. Our
MonitorWare product line already
contains Linux-based members like rsyslog
or phpLogCon, a portable, php-based web
We at Adiscon have always believed in the sharing of information and
algorithms. We know that we are highly depending on the community. For this,
we always tried to contrinbute back as much as possible. If you search the
Internet, you will find a wealth of free information originating from us - from
newsgroup posts to free web sites to research papers. For obvious reasons, we
need to fund our development, so we follow the typical business model for
Windows application vendors. In this environment, we try to keep prices as
modest as possible and seem to have succeeded with that. However, we also feel
very much at home in the free open source world, where we hope to find
sufficient funding under the typical support-based business model.
For the forseeable future, Adiscon will provide both commercial and
open source applications. Many of these solutions will fit similar needs, just
on different platforms. As a important key competency, we will extend our
MonitorWare product line further into the Linux space. We are sure it will
provide additional user benefit under Linux, too.
As of this writing, Adiscon supports the following open source projects:
Our commercial applications - like
EventReporter and MonitorWare Agent -
allow easy integration of Windows systems into a central Linux (and Unix)
management structure. As such, they are also a vital part of our Linux strategy
(though not an obvious one).
