Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"Motorola Computer Group (MCG), part of Motorola's (NYSE:MOT) Integrated Electronic Systems Sector (IESS) and the world's leading supplier of embedded computing platforms for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), and Linuxcare, Inc., a leading provider of comprehensive services for Linux and open-source software, today announced a collaboration to deliver training courses, and technical, professional and certification services for enterprise customers worldwide. These courses and services are designed to facilitate corporate adoption of Linux technology and prepare students to meet Linux Professional Institute (LPI) certification standards. The courses are offered globally with training facilities in Beijing, Munich, New York, Osaka, Shanghai, Tempe, Ariz. and Tokyo."

"As a low-cost, open, scalable and highly robust operating system, Linux is rapidly becoming the operating system of choice," said Dan York, president, LPI Board of Directors. "However, obtaining quality Linux training and support has historically been difficult. I am pleased that Linuxcare and Motorola have teamed to provide courses that are designed to facilitate corporate adoption of Linux technology and prepare students to meet LPI certification standards."

"In addition to training enterprise customers on various aspects of Linux, Motorola offers training for its high availability (HA) Linux solution for applications that require near constant uptime -- such as Operation Administration & Maintenance (OA&M) platforms, call servers, IP gateways, gatekeepers and home location registers. HA Linux is supported by MCG's broad range of service, training and systems integration capabilities."
