About Debian

Founded in 1992, Debian is one of the oldest Linux distributions available. It has a reputation for rock solid stability, reliability and a powerful, easy to use software management system which places over 50 CDs worth of pre-built software at your fingertips for installation with a single command. This software management systems also means that Debian has a reliable and predictable upgrade process from one major release to the next.

Debian's intelligent design and innovative software management system have resulted in one of the largest families of derivative Linux distributions to come from a single ancestor. Notably, the highly successful Ubuntu Linux system is a direct descendant of Debian, adding its own desktop sheen over Debian's underlying architecture. Nevertheless, Debian is still the preferred server Operating System for those who favour the Debian way over other Linux families.

As a non-commercial project, Debian is supported by its user developer community and as such there is no enterprise level vendor support from Debian themselves. With several years commercial experience in Debian support, our experts offer support, training and consultancy services to ensure that the needs of business users who require more comprehensive support are met when using Debian.

As well as Debian support, Transitiv offer consultancy for most popular Linux software on all of our supported distributions, so if you you require assistance with an application not listed elsewhere on the Transitiv website, please ask us about training, support or consultancy for your application on Debian.
