3 Big data security analytics techniques

Here's a way to stamp out rampant software piracy in British schools -- move over to Linux. It's easier, of course, when you're opening up on a greenfield site, like Red Hat Linux adopter Parrs Wood High School, the first school in Britain to be opened in the 21st Century. Based in Manchester, Parrs Wood is also the first school in Britain to offer Web site access through digital TV. It's hooked up video conference links with seven European schools, and it's linked all the primary schools in the area to its library and technology laboratories. Parrs Wood is classified as a City Learning Centre, which means the local neighbourhood gets to play with the technology toys, too. And it's sponsored by Red Hat. The company gets an early reward in the form of a massive thumbs-up from head teacher Iain Hall. "We are delighted to be launching phase one of Parrs Wood school today with the support of Red Hat," he says. "Red Hat Linux enables educational institutions to save money and broaden the opportunities of information technology to all schools - something to which we are committed as an organisation. It also offers better performance than can be achieved with traditional operating systems." In due course, Parrs Wood will have 1,800 students on its school-roll. ®
