ABOUT RUNLEVELS

Runlevel 7 consultancy has a strong technology focus, and whether you're a tech startup or not we believe that help from people who really understand IT is vital to the growth of your business.

In the unix operating system a"runlevel" is an operating mode that the machine can run in. With a few exceptions, the higher the runlevel  the more services are running and the more you can do on the machine. 

 

Unix runlevels only go from 0 to 6, so it just makes sense that  runlevel 7 is one better... just like in Spinal Tap with guitar amps:

Nigel Tufnel: The numbers all go to eleven. Look, right across the board, eleven, eleven, eleven and...

Marty DiBergi: Oh, I see. And most amps go up to ten?

Nigel Tufnel: Exactly.

Marty DiBergi: Does that mean it's louder? Is it any louder?

Nigel Tufnel: Well, it's one louder, isn't it? It's not ten. You see, most blokes, you know, will be playing at ten. You're on ten here, all the way up, all the way up, all the way up, you're on ten on your guitar. Where can you go from there? Where?

Marty DiBergi: I don't know.

Nigel Tufnel: Nowhere. Exactly. What we do is, if we need that extra push over the cliff, you know what we do?

Marty DiBergi: Put it up to eleven.

Nigel Tufnel: Eleven. Exactly. One louder.

Marty DiBergi: Why don't you just make ten louder and make ten be the top number and make that a little louder?

Nigel Tufnel: [pause] These go to eleven...
