The program's objective is to collaborate with the academic community in open source software training, said Cecilia Arrillaga, Red Hat's education director for Latin America's southern and Andean region. Registered institutions receive Red Hat subscriptions for academic use and can access online training on system administration.

In Chile, Universidad Central joins fellow institutions Inacap and Duoc UC. The Red Hat program has also been launched with academic institutions in Costa Rica, El Salvador, Mexico and Colombia.

Latin American digital legal publishing and research firm Microjuris.com has chosen network backup provider Arkeia Software's solution to back up critical customer data, Arkeia announced in a statement.

Microjuris.com also tested EMC NetWorker and Symantec NetBackup before opting for Arkeia's Network Backup solution.

Before implementing Arkeia, Microjuris - which has offices in Puerto Rico, Venezuela, Argentina and Chile - relied on solutions developed in-house at each of its locations, which led to slow backups and unreliable restores, according to the release.
