Top 10 endpoint backup mistakes

Major US government IT supplier Government Technology Services, Inc (GTSI) intends to add Red Hat Linux to its offerings to the federal government. According to GTSI it is currently in talks with Red Hat, and for starters intends to offer Linux software and services as part of two government contracts, one of them with NASA. The company said it was near to a conclusion of its negotiations, and expects to finalise a relationship with Red Hat by the end of the week. GTSI is one of the largest IT suppliers to the US Government, and says it's one of the top ten resellers in the US. It already offers government departments Microsoft, HP UX, Novell and Solaris systems, and by adding Linux to its portfolio intends to "make it easy and convenient for the government to buy products," according to CEO Dendy Young. ®
