SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 21, 1999--
The Linux Cabal, a not-for-profit cooperative that supports the Open Source and Free Software communities, announced today that it is offering affordable web hosting and colocation services to offset the costs of its ongoing efforts.
The Linux Cabal colocation facility is located in San Francisco and has sponsored meeting space for organizations such as the CABAL, the Consortium of All Bay Area Linux, and Bay Area Debian (BAD), a Debian users' group. The Bay Area chapter of LinuxChix, a group of women interested in GNU/Linux and the Open Source and Free Software movements, also recently held its first organizational meeting at the Linux Cabal.
"We're thrilled to see so many community organizations hold meetings here," said Richard Couture, a co-founder of the Linux Cabal. "We'd like to encourage more people to use our colocation facility as well, so we can continue to expand our sponsorship of 'open code' community events."
"The Linux Cabal is at the epicenter of Linux!" said Rick Moen, local Linux activist. "The facility has been key to Bay Area free-software events for half a decade."
"My web server is hosted at the Linux Cabal, and it has endured the Slashdot Effect several times without a problem," said Linux user Don Marti, an organizer of Windows Refund Day and maintainer of several Internet resources featured on slashdot.org and other popular news sites. "The Linux Cabal isn't just about unconditional love, it's about good, reliable bandwidth, too."
Basic colocation services start at $125 per month, including power and one IP address. Web hosting services start at $30 per month. The quarterly fees for second boxes in the same space, additional IP addresses, and DNS, are $15 per service. There is a one-time setup fee of up to $75, depending on the service. For more information, see the Linux Cabal web site at http://linuxcabal.net.
The Linux Cabal will receive special recognition from VA Linux Systems, Linuxcare and the Bay Area Linux User Group (BALUG) at the next BALUG meeting on Tuesday, September 21, 1999. For more information on BALUG, see http://www.balug.org.
