Solutions for Business Computing

My focus is on providing solutions that fit your needs. Whether that be maintaining your computer systems or developing new ones for you. In particular, I specialize in working with Linux and Open Source systems. One key part of this is integrating them with existing systems. So, for example, I am familiar with using Samba to provide file services to Windows desktops.

Linux Systems

The Linux operating system provides a strong, secure platform for your computing needs. It can serve as the basis of your entire computing environment or as your central server. In either case, the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) can be better than the alternatives. (See

Open Source Software

Open source software provides a lot of power for a small cost. And it does so transparently. The source code of the program is available for you to do with as you will. So, you are not locked into one supplier. You are able to fix problems yourself, or hire someone else to do so.

Custom Solutions and Software

Off the shelf systems can offer a great deal of functionality. Sometimes, though, you need more. This is what I do. My expertise allows me to create a solution for you. A Linux server can serve as the basis for a powerful on-premises system. Or the right Open Source software can unlock possibilities in your business. And, if you wish, they can be deployed in the "cloud", freeing you of dependency on a physical server.

My services include the support of new or existing systems and the development of custom software.
