Australian Premier Linux Support Provider to offer Free Reseller Referral Service

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Australian Premier Linux Support Provider to offer Free Reseller
Referral Service

Red Hat’s Australian Support Partner, Cybersource, today
announced: The Linux Referral Service for Resellers, a free
information service for Australia’s Hardware and Software
resellers, system-integrators and VAR community.

The referral service will operate through both email/web and by
phone, and will provide resellers with pointers to information
about Linux, sources for add-on application software, sites for
hardware drivers and general information on the increasingly
popoular operating system.

Cybersource’s Red Hat Linux Support Manager, Richard Keech, said “With the
growth of Linux exploding at the moment, more and more resellers
will be seeking as much information as possible to get upto speed
with the new OS. Cybersource is here to provide a central contact
point for this information dispersal.”

Managing Director at Cybersource, Con Zymaris added: “With
margins on software and hardware being quite low, resellers need to
add value to their sales through services. Deploying Linux
file-servers, firewalls and Internet gateways provides one of the
best ways to do this, and still undercut the competition quoting on
Windows NT and Netware based systems.”

A Web-site http://www.cyber.com.au/cyber/reseller_linux_service/
has been established to provide for an increasing amount of
information on Linux, for resellers.

About Linux Linux is the cooperatively developed POSIX-oriented,
multi-user, multi-tasking operating system used worldwide. Linux is
strongly differentiated from virtually all other operating systems
because it is “open source” software, with the source code freely
available to all users. Unlike binary-only operating systems that
restrict access to the source code, Linux benefits from a worldwide
community of highly experienced programmers and technically savvy
academics who have the access to enhance and improve the system.
Linux is used as an exceptional-value, fully functional UNIX
workstation for Internet servers and other applications. [Notes
