Here are just a few of the things you can do with free operating systems..
Speed up name lookups and thus your network performance and web experience with DNS caching technology.
Set up a system to monitor your mission-critical systems and notify you via mobile when outages occur.
Set up a file server.
Applications / Intranet
Develop and host your own internal web applications for collaboration, or set up a central system where your staff can collaborate and form a community and a knowledge base.
A firewall system can protect your network from unwanted intruders, while allowing secure access to your mobile workforce via VPN connections. At the same time, you can configure your firewall to act as a proxy server, which will speed up your web experience for everyone. A proxy server also allows you to closely monitor and control web usage.
