Have You Checked Your Basement Lately? Enterprise Modernization of Legacy Solaris Systems to Red Hat Enterprise Linux on Industry Standard Hardware

Recorded on June 2, 2010

Large enterprises have large basements. Their basement is overflowing with existing hardware, software, and applications. The more technology that comes out each year, the more everyone is buying and accumulating it in their basement without checking to see if an existing system needs to be eliminated first. How will the newly purchased products work in conjunction with existing systems? Is there a way to eliminate some of the older systems without business risk?

Enterprise Technology Modernization involves a three-pronged strategy - Renovation, Integration, and Management. Join Infosys and Red Hat and learn about the advantages of the latest technology and how you can modernize your IT landscape to replace legacy Solaris systems in your data center with industry standard hardware powered by Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
