Red Hat is providing Telefonica Deutschland with its Enterprise Linux as the German company’s platform of choice for business operations.

Telefonica, a provider of Internet services and the second largest national IP carrier in Germany, is migrating to Red Hat Enterprise Linux from proprietary Unix.
