Open source hardware vendor and advocate to provide FreeBSD and PC-BSD OS support

This is a barrier we are happy to remove.

iXsystems announced today the launch of its Professional Services Division for FreeBSD and PC-BSD. The new Professional Services Division will provide Professional Enterprise Grade support, consulting, and development for FreeBSD and PC-BSD.

Service offerings include desktop support such as installation and basic customization of the operating system. Software application support is also offered and includes assistance configuring and installing third-party applications, either through the FreeBSD ports and packages system or via Push-Button Installers (PBIs), graphical utilities to remove and install PC-BSD software in a simple to use, self-contained format.

Also included are more customized support offerings across a wide range of server-related issues such as kernel tuning and system optimization, device driver creation, kernel, userland, and embedded systems development, and a host of other services. iXsystems offers 8x5 PC-BSD and FreeBSD OS support and has a devoted Service Support Office and US-based Call Center to assist with technical support issues.

"We feel that offering Enterprise Grade Support for FreeBSD and PC-BSD will remove one of the main barriers that the platforms face to expanding adoption. While there may be some companies that are capable of supporting them, there are none, to my knowledge, currently offering services and support on an Enterprise level specific to FreeBSD and PC-BSD," says Matthew Olander, CTO of iXsystems. "This is a barrier we are happy to remove."

iXsystems partners with some of the most accomplished developers in the FreeBSD Community to offer custom development and advanced-level FreeBSD consulting solutions. Furthermore, when the iXsystems Support Team encounters a confirmed bug, they can escalate the bug to the FreeBSD engineering team and work with The FreeBSD Project to help create and submit patches to the FreeBSD community for possible inclusion in the latest release.
