Success Story

Intermountain Healthcare

Moved from legacy proprietary systems to open source

Change is often a hard thing to sell. A lot of what we did was meet with our key business units and let them know some of the direction we thought we should take as a company. Part of that was moving from a proprietary solution to a more open solution that gives us more flexibility and choices.

Open source is a strategic alternative

Proprietary virtualization software thrives on high upgrade costs and charging more for access to advanced features. Red Hat Virtualization frees you from that kind of vendor lock-in—and provides greater cost efficiencies, less maintenance, and military-grade security.
