All Users Who Are Working Full Time
I am an Australian citizen working in Utah since October 2005. I graduated from University back in 1999 and quite accidentally fell into a career in Embedded Software Development, starting with an Australian Multiport Serial Card / Terminal Server manufacturer called Stallion Technologies. I've since worked for a number of appliance manufacturers including ePipe Inc, SnapGear / CyberGuard and my current employer Opengear LLC.
Opengear builds aggressively priced hardware based Remote Management appliances with a focus on security. Think Console Servers with value adds for remotely managing the rest of the equipment in the Data Center. Opengear is committed to releasing source and hardware specifications back to the community.
