  • Linux

    Linux is now by far the most widely used server Operating System on the web, scaling from mobile phones to powering over 90% of the world's top 100 supercomputers and has superseded traditional UNIX and Microsoft Windows alike. Linux is supported and cooperatively developed by many the world's major technology and hardware companies including IBM, Intel, AMD, Google and Microsoft as well as spawning its own such as Red Hat and Canonical. As a result, Linux is now the commodity OS of choice, forming the basis of many free and commercially developed systems. The strength of Linux lies in its versatility, reliability, security and accessibility making it the ideal platform for cloud applications, web and email hosting, security products, virtualisation and as the basis for intelligent appliance products.

  • Unix

    Unix is a multi tasking, multi user computer operating system originally developed in 1969 by a group of AT&T employees at Bell Labs. During the late 1970s and early 1980s, the influence of Unix in academic circles led to large-scale adoption of Unix by commercial startups, the most notable of which are Solaris, HP-UX and AIX. In addition to those already mentioned, Unix-like operating systems such as MINIX, Linux and BSD descendants (FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD and DragonFly BSD) are commonly encountered. Unix operating systems are widely used in servers, workstations, and mobile devices.
