Red Hat Linux Powers CSFB's massive global trading system
bryam writes, "Agora's enterprise notification system, powered by Red Hat Linux, processes roughly 35 million global and 25 million U.S. transactions each day. CSFB converted from a four-way RISC-based architecture to a two-way Intel architecture running Red Hat on an Intel chip. With Egenera as the platform provider, Agora's structure is made up of high-powered Egenera BladeFrame systems running Red Hat Linux. The combination of Red Hat Linux with the BladeFrame consolidates servers and improves performance while lowering cost for business-critical applications." Read the press release at Yahoo!
