Swedish Armed Forces Chooses Red Hat and Open Source
Posted on 7-Feb-2007 09:02 | Tags Filed under: News



Red Hat has announced an agreement with the Swedish Armed Forces that will see the FMLOG Servicedesk, the IT department of the Swedish Armed Forces, migrate its servers from Windows NT to Red Hat Enterprise Linux across its core IT infrastructure.

The FMLOG Servicedesk will be able to offer Red Hat Enterprise Linux solutions to any division or branch of the military. At present, Red Hat Enterprise Linux is the operating system platform on nearly 200 servers running in-house developed software within the core IT infrastructure of the Swedish Armed Forces.

Red Hat says the decision to migrate to Red Hat was primarily based on advanced security features, plus strong support, ease of migration and compatibility with existing in-house software. FMLOG Servicedesk plans to extend its internal usage of Linux in the future.
