Distributions

Although NRC Systems is happy to support any Linux distribution, we recommend the following distributions for new or replacement installations. We have chosen these distributions because we have experience with them and they have proven to be an effective solution in the business environment

Ubuntu Linux is a community developed Linux distribution that is perfect for workstations and servers. Ubuntu has developed the perfect balance of latest software combined with stability.

Ubuntu offers both up-to-date desktop and server versions as well as long life support versions. Ubuntu features full commercial support from Canonical Ltd.

SuSE Linux is a Linux distribution from Novell. It offers the power of Linux combined with the support and infrastructure from Novell. SuSE Linux is also offers vertical support on IBM hardware.

Debian Linux is a free stable operating system. We recommend Debian when bullet-proof services are required on the server level.

Debian's advantage comes from its long development cycle, ensuring that when a new version is released, it is as rock solid and stable as possible. Debian also boasts that it is a truly free distribution, in the sense that it only uses Open Source software.
