Virgin America migrates to Red Hat Linux

Filed under
Linux

New US airline Virgin America has migrated to Red Hat Linux to host its website.

Using San Francisco as a hub, Virgin America is a next-generation low-fare carrier that will serve as many as ten cities within a year of operation, and up to 30 cities within five years.

The website has selected Red Hat Enterprise Linux as the platform to support the website, after previously using the less scalable Red Hat-sponsored Fedora open-source solution.

To obtain a solution with a longer lifecycle and reliable support, the airline chose to migrate its proxy servers to Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
