RALEIGH, NC: Open source solutions provider Red Hat, , today announced that the city of Vienna has selected Red Hat Enterprise Linux as the platform of choice for its servers.

"Red Hat has always had a rigorous focus on the stability of its Linux platform, a commitment that has been apparent and appreciated by us ever since we began deploying Red Hat," explains Franz Brauneder, server management at the City of Vienna.

"In addition, Red Hat could always provide the largest partner network and the most certifications from ISVs and IHVs. Not only was this a key factor for our choice of an operating system, but it is reflected in our own experience of the outstanding quality of the Red Hat software" he added.

The city of Vienna has migrated more than 100 servers to Red Hat Enterprise Linux, principally deploying Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES and AS on HP hardware. Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES is used by the city of Vienna to power its Samba file servers and Apache servers, together with legacy applications written by the city of Vienna itself.

For applications such as its Oracle databases, which need both a lot of resources and highly availability, the IT managers of the city of Vienna selected Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS. In the future, the city of Vienna expects to expand this area of its Linux installation with the imminent deployment of PostgreSQL on Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS together with the migration of its AIX-Unix databases to Red Hat’s flagship solution, a Red Hat statement said.

Werner Knoblich, vice president and general manager, Red Hat EMEA, stated: "The city of Vienna has made a fundamental decision for an expanded deployment of open source software in order to, among other things, avoid vendor-lock-in. Fully open source and with no hidden costs, Red Hat Enterprise Linux is not only the distribution with the fewest patches by far, but its maintenance by the community ensures Red Hat’s customers are guaranteed the highest product quality and vendor-independence."
