3 Big data security analytics techniques

Shame on us - we've apparently been asleep at the switch, and it's fallen to Germany's c't</> to notice that the big house down the road from Register Towers runs its Web site on Red Hat. As c't notes, The Official Web Site of the British Monarchy trundles along on Red Hat 5.2 and Apache 1.1.3. Stung by c't's discovery we decided to dig a little further, into the site's links page (ever wondered which Web sites the Queen thinks are cool? We hadn't until just now). Mixed results are revealed. HRH The Prince of Wales ("Chuck") is another Apache fancier, but running on Irix. This may be because it sounds like a plant. Or maybe his techies just fancied cool workstations all round. Prince Michael of Kent, who is a .org.uk rather than a .gov.uk, is an NT-fancier, as is the Archbishop of Canterbury. Still, Her Maj is the big one, and she's a Red Hat shop. This we presume means that Red Hat now stands a chance of obtaining one of those coveted Royal Warrants. That'd look nice on the box: "By appointment to Her Majesty the Queen..." ®
