Spanair Takes Off with Red Hat Enterprise Linux

Filed under
Linux

Red Hat today announced that Spanair, one of the largest air carriers in Spain, has selected Red Hat Enterprise Linux as the platform of choice for its recent IT initiatives. With Red Hat solutions, Spanair is experiencing increased performance and cost reduction.

Spanair is utilizing Red Hat Enterprise Linux in two of the company's major projects. The airline is running its Carmen crew optimizer software, providing the airline with settings for crew managing, fleet scheduling and timetables, on three Red Hat Enterprise Linux servers. The Red Hat platform is also used in several of the airline's optimization stations that receive information provided by the central server to execute a number of processes. Additionally, Spanair runs its Oracle 10g R2 database server on HP Proliant servers on Red Hat Enterprise Linux to host its data warehouse.

“When we began considering Linux within our infrastructure, we were looking for solutions for two main concerns: cost reduction and performance improvement. Currently, Red Hat Enterprise Linux servers on an Intel platform provide good performance when connected to modern fibre channel drive arrays HP Eva 4000,” said Joan Pons, Spanair systems manager. “We are assessing the possibility of increasing the number of Linux servers in order to install other Oracle databases and new applications.”

Spanair has achieved significant cost savings with Red Hat solutions and through the Red Hat subscription model.

    Most people consider a college education the key to future success, but for many students, the cost is insurmountable. The growing open educational resource (OER) movement is attempting to address this problem by providing a high-quality, low-cost alternative to traditional textbooks, while at the same time empowering students and educators in innovative ways. One of the leaders in this movement is Robin DeRosa, a professor at Plymouth State University in New Hampshire. I have been enthusiastically following her posts on Twitter and invited her to share her passion for open education with our readers. I am delighted to share our discussion with you.

Linux 4.10 To Linux 4.15 Kernel Benchmarks

The ThinkPad X1 Carbon has been enjoying its time on Linux 4.15. In addition to the recent boot time tests and kernel power comparison, here are some raw performance benchmarks looking at the speed from Linux 4.10 through Linux 4.15 Git. With this Broadwell-era Core i7 5600U laptop with 8GB RAM, HD Graphics, and 128GB SATA 3.0 SSD with Ubuntu 17.10 x86_64, the Linux 4.10 through 4.15 Git mainline kernels were benchmarked. Each one was tested "out of the box" and the kernel builds were obtained from the Ubuntu Mainline Kernel archive. Read more
