What We Use

In todays digital economy being adaptable and ready for change is key, and by focusing on open source based IT infrastructures rather than one particular vendor or OS we can adapt to whichever suits our customers needs. To allow us to provide this flexibility we incorporate many languages and technologies for development which in turn provides the integrity, reliability and performance by removing dependence on one particular approach.

Here are some of the open source technologies in use at Linux helpdesk:
