ATHENS, OH (PRWEB) September 28, 2006
Spliced Networks, an innovator in next-generation Linux appliances, today announced that it will exhibit at Ohio LinuxFest 2006 in booth #6. Ohio LinuxFest 2006, taking place Saturday September 30, 2006 at the Great Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio, is a free Linux event for professionals and enthusiasts.
John Buswell, Spliced Networks' CTO, is a featured speaker at the event. Mr. Buswell will give a presentation titled “Open Source Zero Day Attack Protection,” which provides an in-depth look at protecting Linux servers against unknown vulnerabilities and attacks.
At the event, Spliced Networks will unveil the road map for AppOS 3.0, the third generation of the company's successful Linux appliance platform. AppOS provides a reliable software framework and tools to help developers overcome the tedious process of developing Linux appliances.
In addition, the company said that Mark Ramm of TurboGears, will be a guest at the booth. TurboGears is a popular open source web application development framework. TurboGears is built on top of powerful time-tested tools developed by independent open source communities. TurboGears is the equivalent of “Ruby on Rails”, for the Python programming language.
TurboGears is one of many open source projects that Spliced Networks has packaged into a new solution called AppStacks. Designed to work with any Linux operating system, and Apple's MacOS X Server, AppStacks are highly secure and optimized server appliance solutions.
'We are very excited about the upcoming release of AppOS 3.0.' said John Buswell, founder and CTO of Spliced Networks. 'This release is engineered to support a much larger community of users and developers. Ohio LinuxFest is an event that is on par with LinuxWorld in terms of quality and in some ways it offers a superior setting for vendors. We are very pleased that we can demonstrate innovative open source technologies at such a great and local event.'
