Debian was selected for its ease of upgrading and applying security updates, and large selection of packages. We currently maintain several Linux labs with workstations running Debian custom installed with FAI. We also use Debian on several student maintained Beowulf clusters consisting of a total of 20 Sun Ultra 5s. The primary department file server is also running Debian.
The college is current running five servers with Debian and is in the process of replacing most of the remaining Red Hat and Solaris servers with Debian.
