Red Hat Linux Enterprise Version 5 has just been released and already Australian accommodation Web site Wotif.com is implementing the solution.

Wotif.com sells accommodation online in over 40 countries, and attracts almost 2.5 million user sessions every month. It launched in Brisbane in 2000 and now has offices in Canada, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore and the UK.

Wotif.com is an existing Red Hat customer, and according to a statement released this morning, is beginning the the implementation of RHEL5. CIO Paul Young said Wotif.com continually upgrades core technologies to take advantage of new features.

"With more cost effective server optimisation, greater performance and improved scalability, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 will assist the ongoing virtualisation of our test and development environments and provide better support for emerging hardware with new CPU features (dual and quad core processors).

"We expect to complete the upgrade by migrating our core production systems to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 within six months," Young said.
