Joint IBM - RedHat event

Now I'm really taking a break. Don't expect any new posts for about 3 weeks. But I want to use this last post to make some publicity for a joint IBM - RedHat event that's taking place at the IBM Forum in Brussels on September 3, 2009.

My company RealDolmen is one of two premier business partners of RedHat in Belgium and we're the only one who's also a certified business partner for IBM System z.

So to all my Belgian readers, consider this as an invitation for the event.
You will find the same invitation at the Registration page.

The reliability and security of the mainframe has been proven for decades. Linux has established the same reputation for Intel architectures within only 10 years.

Can you imagine the combination of IBM Mainframe with Red Hat Enterprise Linux? Bank of New Zealand bought an IBM System z10 Mainframe only to run Linux on it. Consolidating about 130 servers into a single one! And the result? 38% savings in energy cost; less heat, CO2 emissions and regained space.

IBM and Red Hat invite you to learn about the reality of the winning combination of mainframe and Linux. Get all the insights why Red Hat Enterprise Linux on IBM System z10 will make your IT life easier.
