Building a Business Case for Migrating to Red Hat Enterprise Linux

Join Alex Hublein, Director of Solutuons and Strategy at Red Hat and Greg Shanker, Managing Vice President at Alinean as they outline the business and performance benefits of migrating to Red Hat Enterprise Linux.


Many customers sense that the time is right to consider a move from legacy RISC/UNIX servers to Red Hat Enterprise Linux on x86 platforms. And Red Hat can help you quickly determine the financial benefits of a migration like that – transforming your current software and services costs into a more modern, lower cost environment.

Alex and Greg will introduce an online server modernization TCO calculator to help you quickly determine the financial benefits of migrating to Red Hat. They will also review the strengths of the Red Hat platform:

  • Leading performance, security, and reliability recently refreshed with the introduction of RHEL 6
  • Company dependability with consistency as a vendor you can trust for the long term
  • Protecting the future requirements of your IT infrastructure with a clear path to virtualization and cloud computing
