Apoteket, the Swedish State Pharmacy and Sweden’s largest state-owned pharmacy chain, has chosen to replace all of its servers at approximately 900 pharmacies with Red Hat Enterprise Linux running on Intel hardware. Can we call that Rentel now?
Anyway, Apoteket’s legacy server infrastructure was reaching end of life and experiencing performance issues as a consequence of age, cheery release from Raleigh, N.C. said this morning. According to Apoteket, the massive pharmacy network will soon replace both the hardware platform and the server operating system with Red Hat Enterprise Linux running on Intel-based servers. This means all servers at approximately 900 pharmacies will be replaced with Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Not too shabby.
Apoteket, in collaboration with the Red Hat Support team, has performed extensive tests of the new platform with positive results. The deployment of the new Linux platform was completed at the end of June 2007 and is now in full motion.
