on a Linux deployment by Ireland's EBS Building Society.
"The building society, which is the fifth-largest credit institution in the country, has chosen SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) from Novell as the foundation for the consolidation project. This will involve hosting IBM WebSphere applications and SLES will support more than 1,000 users within EBS in 2007.
EBS has been able to save on software licensing and hardware costs as a result of the project. It has also benefited the firms disaster recovery strategy, as this is now easier to perform backups from a single mainframe than on many distributed machines.
