Enterprise Management Consulting began by providing consultancy to blue
chip clients - JP Morgan, Andersen Consulting, CSC - mostly as trading
floor support. Then early last year they saw that Linux was rapidly
capable of becoming a "one size fits all" operating system and last
September they became Red Hat commercial support partners.  

Since then they've been bending everyone's ear about Linux and
convincing their existing customers to convert from NT or Novell to
Linux. They currently support around 30 commercial Linux sites across
the UK.

EMC will speak about some of the conversions that they have done and
also more broadly about the future available directions for Linux - ie.
clustering and High Availability, NDS and Global File Systems.  

The entrance to Comlab is from Parks Road and maps can be found at:

The following monthly meeting will be on Sunday 4th July when Andrew
Jackson will demonstrate VMware.
