Red Hat Enterprise Linux Powers the Globe’s Stock Exchanges

The Red Hat Enterprise Linux Team

An enjoyable and important part about celebrating the decade of Red Hat Enterprise Linux is recognizing and honoring our customers that have collaborated with us and relied on Red Hat to run their mission-critical enterprise applications. This collaboration has contributed significantly to Red Hat Enterprise Linux industry leadership.

The worldwide financial services industry is a prominent example of our leadership. Customers in this sector quickly realized the value of open source software and Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Stock exchanges around the world – from NYSE Euronext to the Tokyo Stock Exchange – deploy Red Hat Enterprise Linux because of its reliability, scalability and performance. Today, 28 stock exchanges across 24 countries run Red Hat Enterprise Linux to handle more than 50 percent of the world’s trading volume.

 

Red Hat takes our commitment to meeting the security needs of our customers seriously because we know that security is a key evaluation criterion for our customers running high-intensity, mission-critical stock exchange environments. NYSE Euronext turned to Red Hat Enterprise Linux for a high-speed, cost-effective platform that offers freedom from vendor lock-in and strong security capabilities. Our Asia Pacific stock exchange customers – currently 12 – use Red Hat Enterprise Linux and its SELinux technology.

Through our community-powered approach and partner ecosystem strength, we continuously connect with technology leaders to bring proven, high-performing Linux solutions to our joint customers. For our worldwide financial institution customers, we recently partnered with Arkelis, a fully-owned subsidiary of SWIFT, to port the Arkelis Advanced Messaging Hub (AMH) to Red Hat Enterprise Linux to effectively manage the significant volumes of their incoming and outgoing messaging traffic.

As we mark the 10th year of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, we celebrate the collaboration we have had with our customers and look forward to our continued innovation. Don’t miss the sessions and panels featuring our customers and partners at the upcoming Red Hat Summit and JBoss World in June, where we’ll also honor the winners of the Red Hat Innovation Awards, our annual recognition program honoring the individuals, companies and partners that have forged new ground by implementing Red Hat solutions.
