Gentoo Virtual Servers Available

I hope everyone is enjoying the festive season. In Scotland we've had a good snow covering for over a week now, which is unusual for here. With the weather so penguin-friendly, perhaps it is fitting that today we have made Gentoo virtual servers available. Give us a shout at Gladserv if you'd like to try one out.

We've been experimenting with FreeBSD virtual servers, but alas, we're not able to make them available to the public yet. FreeBSD support for Xen has been on and off (mostly off since Xen 2.0 days really). We've not seen much demand for them yet, but if you are interested, let us know. If we get enough requests we'll put some more R&D time into making this production-ready.

Cheers, and enjoy the rest of the season!

Scottish Open Source Awards 2009 - Open for Nominations

The awards are on again for their third year. Nominations for Scottish Open Source companies are needed.

Previous winners include Edinburgh's Wolfson Microelectronics (2008) for their work on the Linux kernel and driver platform, and OSC Member Malcolm MacSween's EMC UK (2007). Gladserv was shortlisted for the Open Source Excellence Award last year.

The awards for the last two years have been presented as part of the Scottish Software Awards in Glasgow - a large and well attended event, and have done a lot to raise the profile of Open Source software in Scotland.

Gladserv Partners with Social Innovation Camp

Gladserv has sponsored the latest Social Innovation Camp, to be held in Scotland from 19-21 June 2009.

We are providing a year of free hosting services to the winner, and will be providing server space for the weekend to help support this initiative.

SICamp is about taking a great social idea, and using the leverage of the Internet to take the benefit to as many people as possible. That, to me, is really cool and worth supporting.
