The software we use to power our own spearhead.cloud is open source with non-restrictive licensing. It was developed in the open by Joyent, a company with deep engineering talent that has lived on the leading edge of technical innovation. Joyent has pioneered the public and hybrid cloud computing space and was one of the first to embrace and industrialize containers, compute-centric object storage and what is now coming to be known as serverless computing.
One of the world’s best engineered operating systems, designed to be particularly suitable for building clouds and generating appliances, SMARTOS is a converged container and virtual machine hypervisor. Also developed by Joyent, this reliable, completely free, open-source technology combines the capabilities of a lightweight container OS, optimized to deliver containers, with the robust security, networking and storage capabilities expectable from a hardware hypervisor, proving to the world that not all clouds are the same.
Secure containers (full isolation per container in a multi-tenant environment), built-in networking (each Triton container has its own unique IP address), built-in storage (secure, isolated, resizable filesystems for each container), bare metal performance (the speed of bare metal performance but in the same time the flexibility of virtualization) is what we love about SMARTOS.
With features such as ZFS, Zones, bare-metal Docker, multiple virtual machine hypervisors and DTrace, SmartOS allows users to start up entire infrastructures or applications quickly and easily. Following a strict local node storage architecture, it also makes sure that network latency issues are eliminated, preserving node independence.
Rundeck aims to enable anyone to safely execute self-service operations tasks that previously only subject matter experts could perform. Automating ordinary processes across development and production environments, Rundeck fuses task scheduling, multi-node command execution, workflow orchestration and logs everything that happens.
Leveraging existing skills and investments, Rundeck automates the workflows that span and invokes existing automation and manual commands. A bridge between multiple systems or processes, Rundeck allows you to standardize and resolves issues faster, enabling anyone to safely execute diagnostic or remediation procedures (that previously only subject matter experts could execute), using Self-Service operations. It increases compliance and security posture, offering complete oversight, with granular access controls and a complete audit trail of all Rundeck actions.
We work with established industry leaders from all around the globe to bring the best performing hardware. From servers and mainframes to storage solutions and software, we offer you the right, tested tools to build the stable IT foundation you’re looking for your company.
Choosing the right hardware is often overlooked. We are systems engineers but also generalists and understand the difference between general purpose computing and specialised requirements. Choosing the right hardware means having a deep understanding of the entire stack. We not only build systems, we operate one of the largest public clouds in Eastern Europe and are knowledgeable in using the right hardware and software for the right job.
From the world’s most performant supercomputers to the Mars rover, cards, home appliances, enterprise servers and personal computers, Linux is everywhere. Linux is an open-source free software clone of the UNIX operating system.
Linux is one of the most reliable, secure and worry-free operating systems available. Most important, it is free software. That’s right, you can use it now for no cost at all. Linux is distributed under an open source license. Open source follows these key tenants:
The freedom to run the program, for any purpose.
The freedom to study how the program works, and change it to make it do what you wish.
The freedom to redistribute copies so you can help your neighbour.
The freedom to distribute copies of your modified versions to others.
Linux is at the basis of most modern technologies, specifically those found in major cloud computing providers.
We work with all major distributions and are highly skilled in our use of Linux to get desired results without the worry of other operating systems such as malware, viruses, security breaches, etc. If you want peace of mind, use UNIX or Linux. If you need help, we’re the experts you’re looking for.
A cloud-based, subscription model version of Microsoft’s popular productivity suite Microsoft Office, MSOffice 365 offers complete backup and storage of both documents and emails with maximum security, putting forward the same core applications as traditional versions of Office.

Customers come to Red Hat because they need innovative open source technology that will help grow their organizations, but they don’t want to assume the risk of doing it alone. They need flexibility, but not the headaches or expense of curating their own open source portfolios.
We make open source safe and ready for enterprises. We fix problems when they arise and share everything we know with everyone who needs it. Red Hatters, and open source technologists in general, are inherently helpful.
