As technology goes, Unix and Linux are some of the most battle-hardened systems available, and AppliedTrust is an industry leader in the space. Members of the AppliedTrust team co-authored the seminal system administration book series titled Unix System Administration Handbook, which reached its 20th anniversary in 2009. Our experts speak at local Unix and Linux user groups, participate in online discussion forums, and keep their skills honed through regular exposure to the newest industry developments.
AppliedTrust can supplement an existing Unix team or operate independently. We’re experts at installing, hardening, and configuring new systems with an eye for industry best practices, but we’re just as comfortable coming up to speed on existing systems. We shine when we’re able to solve problems before they occur. Is the system missing critical patches? Would a local firewall increase security without impacting service? Are the proper system metrics being monitored? We’ll isolate issues, discuss them with the appropriate stakeholders, and implement solutions effectively and efficiently.
Additional notes about AppliedTrust engineers:
We consider ourselves “Unix agnostic.” Whether your server runs an ancient version of SunOS or a bleeding-edge Linux distribution, we’ll provide sound assistance.
We live and breathe process and change management, so you can rest assured that your systems are in responsible hands.
Open-source software is one of our technical passions, and we’re familiar with all the common tools and practices. We’re equally adept with large packages such as Apache and PHP or BIND, as well as smaller tools that fill a particular niche.
