Nokia, Vienna to don Red Hat

Nokia to use Red Hat Enterprise Linux for telecommunications gear; Viennese government standardizing on RHEL.

Nokia plans to use Red Hat Enterprise Linux as its primary operating system for carrier-grade telecommunications equipment through a partnership announced Wednesday. Red Hat staff will be located at Nokia to provide consulting, support, certification and training services, but terms of the deal weren't disclosed.

Red Hat also announced on Tuesday that the government of Vienna, Austria, has chosen RHEL as its preferred server operating system. It will use the company's Linux version for database and file servers. It already is using RHEL on more than 100 servers--chiefly on Hewlett-Packard servers, Red Hat said.
