Need a Linux Refresher Course?

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

This week, Ashley stepped back in front of the camera to tell us about this new Linux training and what to expect. 

Watch the video below to learn more.

Listen to podcasts? 

This past Tuesday, we were thrilled to be guests on the Ask Noah show, hosted by Noah J. Chelliah and Steve Ovens, a weekly radio show and podcast focused on Linux and open source technology.

Our President and co-founder, Dr. Doug Milburn, alongside our Lead Storage Architect, Mitch Hall, had the pleasure of discussing our love & passion for open source solutions.

We talked about how we do things differently here at 45Drives when it comes to our line of products, our various deployments, how to strive to put our customers #1 and more! 

Here's what one listener had to say: 
Thanks, Tim! 😊

But we don't want to spoil this awesome talk so check it out below!
