Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"To simplify and centralize the management of desktops, Netorek, a Red Hat Advanced Partner, deployed Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization for Desktops, which allows the city's ICT department to deploy, configure and run Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Windows desktops in public institutions throughout the city. To virtualize the city's server environment, Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization for Servers was implemented in the city's datacenter.

"Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization for Desktops is a valued asset for the city of Kankaanpää to deploy virtual workstations efficiently across its entire organization. The quantifiable effects of implementing Red Hat virtualization in Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization for Desktops were remarkable," said Ehto. "The project costs for deploying new desktops were cut by 50 percent and deployment time was reduced by 10 percent. In addition, the life span of existing desktop PCs has been extended, as they can now serve as re-purposed thin clients, hosting virtual desktops run in the datacenter, which requires less capacity from physical clients."
