Axfood, one of the largest food retailers in Scandinavia, is migrating to Red Hat Enterprise Linux to support its IT infrastructure.
Axfood will use Red Hat Enterprise Linux as a platform for its strategic SAP business software environment, and will also use Red Hat's JBoss Enterprise Application Platform in the company's core production environment.
Rolf Berge, production manager at Axfood, said, "We chose Red Hat Enterprise Linux because it is a cost-efficient and safe platform for us to grow on."
Axfood is also utilising Red Hat Satellite Server and Red Hat Global File System.
With Satellite Server, Axfood can administer and manage all of its systems centrally, reducing maintenance time, resources and costs. Updates and patches ensuring security and timeliness are also automatically sent to all systems through Red Hat Satellite Server.
Axfood has chosen to implement Red Hat Global File System to ensure high availability of its mission-critical systems.
Axfood has also implemented the Java-based JBoss Enterprise Application Platform to provide an in-depth view and better control of its development platform.
