Linux
"A serious alternative"
What is Linux?

Linux is an Operating System, which acts as a communication service between the hardware (or physical equipment of a computer) and the software (or applications which use the hardware) of a computer system.

The Linux Kernel (the core, much like a popcorn kernel) contains all of the features that you would expect in any Operating System.

What does of Linux a different OS?

The Linux Kernel is Copyright (c) Linus B. Torvalds under the terms of the General Public License (GPL). The GPL states that the source code must be freely distributed and that anyone is allowed to make copies for their own use, or to sell or give to other people (with a few restrictions). While most Linux software is GPL'd, this does not mean that all software developed or ported to Linux has to be. Many other licenses exist, with some commercial software packages having more restrictive licenses, such as the common copying restrictions faced by Windows users.

Will Linux work well with my network?

Networking support in Linux is advanced and superior to most other Operating Systems. Since the people developing Linux collaborated and used the Internet for their development efforts, networking support came early in Linux development. As an Internet server, Linux is a very good choice, often outperforming Windows NT, Novell and most UNIX systems on the same hardware (even multiprocessor boxes). Linux is frequently chosen by leading businesses for superior server and network performance.

Linux supports all of the most common Internet protocols, including Electronic Mail, Usenet News, Gopher, Telnet, Web, FTP, Talk, POP, NTP, IRC, NFS, DNS, NIS, SNMP, Kerberos, WAIS and many more. Linux can operate as a client or as a server for all of the above and has already been widely used and tested.

Linux also fits easily and tightly into Local Area Networks (LANs), regardless of system combinations, providing full and seamless support for Macintosh, DOS, Windows, Windows NT, Windows 95, Novell, OS/2, using their own native communication protocols. Linux can do all of this with low memory requirements.

Services
 
Software
We develop “tailor made” software, as well as modifying and updating obsolete applications.

Our software is developed using REALbasic, VisualBasic, Pascal (Delphi as well as others), 4D, Omnis Studio, C, C++, etc.

These programs are ready to work in whichever platform you choose:
  • MS Windows
  • Mac OS/Mac OS X
  • Unix BSD, Linux, Solaris, AIX
  • AS/400
  • Palm OS, Pocket PC

We carry out a previous study and hand you a detailed report including a development planning with dates and datelines. With our on-line support system you will be able to monitor the program’s progress as deadline approaches. We also guarantee later support and updating for your system.

Web software
To develope software for dynamic webs we use the most common, but also the most powerful tools:

Dynamic webs based on Java Servlets. Applets Java programming.

CGI applications on Perl5, links with database through DBI (PostgreSQL, mySQL, mSQL, Oracle...).

PHP4, Python. CGI programming over UNIX in different free distribution languages.

Microsoft Visual InterDev. Solutions for Microsoft Web providers, VBScript/JavaScript languages, Active Server Pages (ASP).

WebObjects applications: the perfect solution to carry out your project, be it on Internet, Intranet, Extranet or e-Business.
Database
Choosing the right database is an important decision when developing your project. The right choice should be made according to the volume of work it will contain, operative system in which it will operate, the budget and project’s datelines.

Corporative solutions which require a powerful, stable and growing database, which can contain a great amount of work: Oracle, Sybase.

Economical and with an optimal performance. Unix SQL. Commercial SQL databe (OpenBase SQL, PrimeBase) or free use (mSQL, mySQL, PostgreSQL).

Microsoft solutions. SQL Server or MS Access.

Critical speed. For local solutions of hundreds of thousands of data entries. ParadigmaSoft Valentina.

Quick development. Bringing together programming and database. 4th Dimension, FileMaker.

If you already have a structure based on a particular database, but also if you want to begin a new project.
E-Commerce
You can modify the contents on your Website through programs packed on your Web provider without having to redesign your site or going into expensive updates. This way, you’ll always be able to offer updated and attractive contents (B2C or Business to Clients), with a dynamical presence on the Net.

If you are looking for a Business to Business (B2B) or a Business to Employees (B2E) solution, you can use e-commerce programs to database commercial transactions between firms or monitor service and/or product added value supply between a business and its employees.
There are also many e-commerce solutions for businesses which supply services to the Administration.

We have a wide range of solutions for goods or services exchange between Internet users, such as auctions, exchange oriented sites, etc.

E-procurement
Electronic buying. We apply Internet technology to a business’ goods and services supply chain, making the process of buying and payment easier and more efficient.
Security
Net and system security: Firewall, antivirus, access analysis and control, identity check, etc. Information coding on data transmission.

E-commerce security: To the real security in commercial transactions, technically provided (coding algorithms, password length, etc), we add our effort to afford the users a sense of security, which is absolutely necessary to obtain their trust.
We work with standard SET (Security Electronic Transaction) and SSL (Secure Sockets Layer), according to what your project requires.
Others
Please consult us about other-oriented projects, such as information stands, program translation, etc.
