Flying high with open source

,----[ Quote ]
| Can you give me a sense of the scale of your operation?
|
| Robert Wiseman: We have about 5,000 servers across the world, probably
| two-thirds running open source. Close to 100% of our requests go through a
| server using open source technology at some point, primarily Linux.
|
| Do you use other, non-open source operating systems?
|
| RW: We've standardized on Red Hat Linux, but our mainframe runs a mainframe
| operating system, and we have some legacy Unix systems running various
| proprietary operating systems, but we're starting to phase those out as we
| move to a standard Linux environment.

Sabre Holdings: Red Hat Thrives in Place of Unix

,----[ Quote ]
| When Sabre actually benchmarked Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) running on
| Intel against Solaris on SPARC, it found quite a difference — to say the
| least. The Linux/Intel combination was three times faster than the Sun Unix
| solution, and when both licensing and hardware costs were taken into account
| it worked out about 90 percent cheaper, according to Wiseman.
