Intent21 picks up a Penguin in Linux distribution deal

Fairford has signed Intent21 as the exclusive distributor for the firm’s Rogue Penguin Linux server software.

Intent21 said it had also begun discussions with several companies in Dubai and the wider Middle East region regarding sub-distribution of the Rogue Penguin solution.

“We are looking forward to working with Fairford and Rogue Penguin,” said Adrian Gleave, managing director at Intent21.

Rogue Penguin was developed for people with no Linux or Unix experience and has been designed so that it will automatically configure itself as either an enterprise server or a feature-packed desktop computer.

Linux is the primary operating system for back-end processes, and Fairford believes that its reliability, security, control and cost now makes it the preferred server amongst small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs).
