Donovan to load platforms with Red Hat Linux, staff to undergo certification training for support

SINGAPORE, 28 July 2000 - Donovan Systems and Red Hat have partnered to put Red Hat Linux on Donovan's 64-bit platform as well as provide for increased Red Hat Linux support, training and certification in Asia.

Donovan will bundle Red Hat Linux software, documents and media with all its servers and provide technical support to cater for the growing regional demand for Linux support and training. In partnership with Red Hat, Donovan staff have undertaken training to become Red Hat Certified Engineers (RHCE).

Red Hat Linux offers high-end features such as clustering, and has a comprehensive software bundle. It includes functionality to serve Web pages, email, DNS, news, and more, for multiple sites, with virtual hosting.

The popular Apache Web server and Sendmail email package allow users to set up anything from a small intranet server to a large virtual hosted server for hundreds of clients. Other packages allow easy client/server relationships on heterogeneous computer networks. Red Hat Linux also includes software needed for use as a desktop client such as email, browsers, publishing, calendars, and Internet tools.
