As Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® celebrates its 10th anniversary, the industry’s leading open source operating system has gained a large and growing number of supporters, especially in the public sector where the operating system’s value, performance, security, Common Criteria certification, and reliability stand out.
In a currently tight budgetary climate, government organizations are working to function as cost-effectively as possible. Agencies also face regulatory mandates for energy efficiency and datacenter consolidation that are driving them to consolidate datacenters, servers, applications, and services to reduce costs. IT managers are moving to commodity x86-based servers to replace legacy RISC servers. To help ensure reliable, efficient IT operations, an increasing number of government organizations are migrating to Red Hat Enterprise Linux as well.
