Welcome to the weekly Whirlwind Tech Tour, a new feature on SearchEnterpriseLinux.com. Each week, we pose a question on a current Linux-in-the-enterprise topic to a team of IT pros a question and post their answers here. In doing so, we intend to promote informed, productive and passionate conversation about the issues that affect Linux professionals. We look forward to receiving your questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
