Through feedback from our customers, our support team, and our efforts to survey the IT industry, we’ve learned something pretty interesting. Turns out, many individuals could use a refresher course on Linux Administration.

Resources Available To You

Here at 45Drives, we love all things open. Open source, open software, open hardware, a cold open beer at the end of the week—you get the gist. 

But another thing we really love is the open source community. This is why we love giving back as much as we get.

We do this by making everything we do here at 45Drives available to everyone, the community, our customers, fans, followers or anyone looking for information. 

Let's dive into the resources we have available to you:

Are you subscribed to the 45Drives YouTube channel? If not, we highly recommend that you do!

Our team is always looking to contribute to the open source community, and another way we do this is with our articles.

From commonly asked questions about open source, such as how ZFS does its read and write caching, to RAID and RAIDZ, to information about our Houston UI and Cluster storage BootCamp. This resource has it all!
