This interactive event will outline a business case for Linux as an enabler for emerging workloads. While Linux often entered the enterprise as a “skunkworks” project running Web servers or test and development environments, the platform has matured over the last 10 years to run the most mission-critical pieces of major organizations.


Jim Elliott, Linux Champion at IBM Canada Ltd., will provide a detailed look at why Linux is the right choice to:


• Consolidate physical infrastructure to prepare for cloud computing

• Deliver business-critical workloads at lower costs

• Reduce costs on energy infrastructure, staffing and licensing

• Set up a utility computing environment that adds value to the business

You’ll also hear from Nigel Fortlage, Vice President, Information Technology, GHY International who will provide real-world feedback on Linux as a choice for private clouds.
