TRW Automotive has agreed to a three-year contract extension with Dell that involves standardizing on Dell enterprise products and services, including an on-going effort to consolidate dozens of server sites into four regional data-center hubs.

TRW, a supplier of automotive safety systems with annual revenue of about $12 billion, will purchase a mixture of Dell hardware and services that includes 24,000 desktop computers, laptops, and workstations, hundreds of servers, and dozens of storage systems.

Joe Drouin, global CIO for TRW, says the company first began standardizing on Dell desktop equipment in 1999, and is now looking to move as much of its server infrastructure as possible off Unix-based equipment to Dell systems running a Linux operating system.

A lot of settings can be found in the Settings program, and the available options will vary by Linux distribution. Usually, you can change the background, tweak sound volume, connect to printers, set up displays, and more. While I won't talk about all of the settings here, you can certainly explore what's in there. Read more
