Linux/UNIX Systems Administration Training

The UNIX operating system has become a predominant leader in both academic and industrial computing environments, appearing everywhere from desktops to servers. Considered the backbone for 80% of today's websites, UNIX is recognized as the platform of choice because of its versatility and ability to work across platforms. The demand for skilled UNIX System Administrators has grown proportionally with the increase in the number of systems and sophistication of networks. System Administrators typically implement, maintain and manage complex networks.
