An integral part of the Red Hat standard operating environment (SOE) for TRUMPF was training and certifying employees as Red Hat Certified System Administrators (RHCSA®) and Red Hat Certified Engineers (RHCE®). As a result of standardization, automation, and the knowledge we acquired through the implementation of a standard operating environment, we were able to successfully complete the migration from Sun Solaris to Red Hat Enterprise Linux within a comparatively short time.
