Reverse Polarity has been deploying and supporting open-source and open standards technology solutions for almost two decades. We have proven expertise in the technology industry supporting Linux, Novell, FreeBSD, Unix, Apple and Microsoft.
We have a reputation for being "the expert's expert" within the technology industry and amongst our vendor, client relations, and partnerships. Our expertise revolves around technologies and processes used to secure, stabilize and maintain network infrastructures and services.
We provide technology assessments, recommendations and solutions to fix, upgrade, maintain, and deploy network infrastructures, systems, applications, and monitoring tools that best fit our clients' situations and requirements.
Our solutions have a reputation for being stable and reliable. Each solution is strategically assessed per each client's technology needs, environments, situations, budgets and objectives.
Our main client base consists of public, private, boarding, and day schools.
In my previous post HERE, I gave a brief description of Apple's implementation of the mDNS protocol which they named "Bonjour". I explained why the protocol does not function in a segmented (subnetted) network and described the open-source solution that we deploy for our clients which is comprised of a free, open-source Gentoo Linux (virtual) server running the open-source implementation of the mDNS protocol called "Avahi."
My goal in this post is to describe in detail exactly how to implement your very own virtual "Bonjour Gateway" in a VMware vSphere environment.
Here you will find a growing list of examples where Linux and other open-source software is being used successfully in schools, municipalities and businesses all around the world.
