Open Source / Linux


There are many reasons companies want to move to Free Libre Open Source Software (FLOSS) and the GNU/Linux (Linux) Operating System in particular. Price, avoiding vendor lock-in, stability, security (viruses and breaches) and better support are just some of the reasons firms have switched to FLOSS. Advanced Reality can help you reap the benefits of FLOSS. We don't just talk about it, currently a large portion of our internal systems and applications utilize FLOSS.

Open Source

Advanced Reality has helped firms implement FLOSS operating systems, directory services, instant messaging, web services, databases, telephony as well as a host of other applications. A wide variety of FLOSS exists. We are familiar with with many but not nearly all FLOSS applications. Some of the applications we have implemented are:

  • Apache Web Server
  • MySQL Database
  • PostgreSQL Database
  • Jabber Instant Messaging
  • OpenLDAP Directory Services
  • Asterisk PBX
