Thinking about migrating to Open Source ?

Introduction
The status of Open Source in 2012.

RedHat Enterprise Linux
Achieve the availability, scalability and performance you need for your most demanding enterprise applications from the world's Open Source Leader. RedHat Enterprise Linux has become the de facto standard for Enterprise Linux throughout Europe. Not only is the platform robust and committed to Open Source standards, it also provides enterprise features like virtualization, integrated security, increased scalability and of course professional end-to-end maintenance and support.

Optimized platforms for Open Source
HP has since the beginning endorsed Open Source, providing full compatibility and support for the Open Source stack. Furthermore, HP labs have actively participated in introducing enterprise features in open source, such as clustering, full application support and platform interoperability. Even today, thousands of developers across HP are focused on Linux and open source projects!

Come and discover together with us the reasons and motivations behind this strategic platform choice, and how Group S experiences this strategic shift.
