IT Svit Loves Open Source
There are a lot of IT companies on the market and each one wants to differ from a bunch of others in any possible way, offering significant discounts, all-in-one plans with lots of products/features/services, loyalty programs for permanent clients, etc. However, some of prospective advantages may be tainted by commercial software that obliges you to pay for licences. That is not a real deal. IT Svit company goes upstream here.
When you are dealing with a software or service that should be periodically renewed, this imposes some implicit limitations and inconveniences, like inaccessibility of related services and features if there is no currently active payment or subscription. The things may be even worse if you have several paid services or software applications – in such a case, loss of money seems to be unavoidable.
Here, at IT Svit, we can breathe deeply, because we’re free of these headaches. We use Linux-based distributions (generally, Ubuntu, Mint and Fedora) in our everyday work and our servers are powered with CentOS and Ubuntu Server. Linux has a variety of distributions that provide us with a freedom of choice, so we can implement the best solution that fits our needs and fulfills the most demanding requirements of our customers.
This approach gives us a strong boost to keep innovating and moving forward far too quicker than if we would use commercial solutions and OSs. Another aspect to note here is that our customers receive the most comprehensive services at highest quality levels.
Open Source makes our style – we are using it not only in desktops and servers, but also for backup and monitor solutions: Bacula, Nagios and Icinga are our proven companions that simplify boring repetitive tasks and make our system administrator happier.
This list lacks just one entry – OpenStack, a true free software giant. It gives us an ultimate flexibility in implementing complex projects with heterogeneous environments and various configurations, so we can do more with less efforts.
As you can see, Open Source software is not just a peculiar term – it’s an amazing tool for giving such a desirable freedom to many companies, as well as taking advantage of the most recent technologies and approaches.
Stop dreaming – start open-sourcing!
