IDC's study demonstrates that organizations can leverage Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® to achieve the agile, high-performing server infrastructures they need while maintaining cost-effective and efficient server environments. Organizations benefit from having a robust open source Linux platform to run business applications, which enables them to support these transformational workloads with fewer servers, less IT staff time, and higher availability than servers running other operating systems.

As a result, IDC calculates that organizations interviewed for this study will achieve substantial benefits with Red Hat Enterprise Linux compared with alternative server approaches: needing an average of 40% less time to operate their Red Hat Enterprise Linux environments over three years, and projecting to earn an average three-year ROI compared with taking another approach of 348%.
