Chicago Mercantile Exchange Uses Red Hat Enterprise Linux to Double Trades and Halve Hardware Costs
The more trades the futures exchange can complete per day, the more money it makes. This is exactly what happened when CME initiated its migration from Sun Solaris to Red Hat Enterprise Linux in early 2004. Their number of daily trades more than doubled, resulting in a significant revenue spike. Red Hat Enterprise Linux also delivered a twofold increase in performance and enabled CME to save 50% on overall hardware costs in calendar year 2004. Register and download
