Filed under
MDV

Paris Descartes University's UFR Biomédicale has installed the Mandriva Linux operating system on client desktops and servers to ensure a permanent stability and optimise the work of its 4,500 students.

The 'UFR Biomédicale' of Saints-Pères embraces within the Paris Descartes University different medical and life science academic units and 14 laboratories attached to the CNRS and INSERM research institutions.

The Paris 'UFR Biomédicale' wished to integrate an operating system answering several criteria:

* stability and updated versions for software including apache, php, mysql, ldap, samba and ssh for their servers;

* reliability;

* user-friendly management for a distribution integrating scientific tools for lecture halls and reading rooms.

* Simplicity, facility and security are key Mandriva words and its operating system proves a perfect match for the Paris UFR Biomédicale's needs.
