Union Pacific Increases System Performance and Lowers Costs With JBoss Enterprise Middleware
Source: Red Hat
Union Pacific Corporation (NYSE:UNP) is one of America's leading transportation companies. With rising costs and an aging mainframe IT infrastructure, Union Pacific's ability to scale for growth was limited. Union Pacific needed a stable and capable platform to migrate its mainframe environment. Union Pacific needed to develop a more flexible operating platform to build its distributed IT environment so they are migrating to a Red Hat Enterprise Linux-based virtualized infrastructure to replace the mainframe. Union Pacific also needed to develop a thinner web application tier, and the company turned to JBoss Enterprise Middleware from Red Hat to develop a highly customized, web application platform that runs in the virtualized Java Hosting environment.
