Understanding Linux Deployment Strategies: The Business Case for Standardizing on Red Hat Enterprise Linux

This IDC white paper compares organizations using a commercial Linux subscription from Red Hat to support their Linux servers with organizations that are using a mixed environment of both commercially supported and nonpaid Linux distributions aboard their servers.
