Vancouver Community College phases in more Linux

Vancouver Community College made the switch to Linux from a mixed environment of NetWare and Windows operating systems one year ago when it purchased IBM blade servers, which came with Linux pre-installed, to replace its aging infrastructure. Novell’s Suse Linux Enterprise Server 9 now accounts for over 50 per cent of VCC’s server environment, which has 40 physical servers and double that number of virtual machines.

“The intention is to have the vast majority of (servers) running Linux,” said Des Dougan, director of information and computing services, VCC.
