University of Stirling Migrates SAP Application Servers to Linux

Filed under
Linux

Red Hat has helped the University of Stirling in Scotland to migrate its SAP application servers, that manage the Human Resources and Payroll functions, to run on Red Hat Enterprise Linux. The migration has resulted in a three fold improvement in performance and in lower project costs.

The SAP HR and Payroll environment which supports approximately 2000 staff members at Stirling University was showing worsening performance after application upgrades. Stirling turned to its preferred IT partner, Abtech Computer Services UK, who is a Red Hat Advanced Partner as well as an HP Linux Elite Partner, for services.

The University of Stirling decided to migrate to a two tier system running the SAP application tier on HP Proliant Servers (HP Proliant DL380) running Red Hat Enterprise Linux. "We went with Red Hat because it offers a high level of support and stability for critical applications such as SAP." said Martyn Peggie, HR Information System Manager at Stirling University.

In just a few months, two years will have passed since the official announcement of Ubuntu for mobiles and tablets.

The first Ubuntu Touch-powered phones are expected to arrive in December, from Meizu, so the release of an RTM version a couple of months ahead of time is actually very good news. In case you didn't know, RTM means release to manufacturing and indicates that a system is almost complete, feature-wise, and that the developers are now only focusing on the bugs and various performance issues.

What’s in a job title?

Over on Google+, Aaron Seigo in his inimitable way launched a discussion about people who call themselves community managers.. In his words: “the “community manager” role that is increasingly common in the free software world is a fraud and a farce”. As you would expect when casting aspertions on people whose job is to talk to people in public, the post generated a great, and mostly constructive, discussion in the comments – I encourage you to go over there and read some of the highlights, including comments from Richard Esplin, my colleague Jan Wildeboer, Mark Shuttleworth, Michael Hall, Lenz Grimmer and other community luminaries. Well worth the read. Read more
