ING-DiBa is the third-largest retail bank in Germany. As a branchless bank with a direct banking model, the underlying platforms powering its services are critical. The introduction of Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat Satellite helps ING-DiBa achieve increased efficiency, performance, and scalability by migrating from SPARC-Solaris servers to x86 systems running on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux platform.
"As a financial services provider, we cannot make any compromises as far as the reliability and stability of the solutions used in datacenter operations are concerned. And it is exactly here that Red Hat Enterprise Linux as a platform has convinced us completely, without question.”
‒ HEIKO MICHELSEN, team leader, Virtualization and Cloud Services, ING-DiBa
DreamWorks Animation prides itself on being on the leading edge of both creative artistry and technology. By moving away from proprietary hardware and software to Red Hat products running on x86 platforms, DreamWorks lowered hardware costs by 75% and reduced annual software licensing costs by 60%.
"We've seen improvements in how we can provide on-demand resources to our artists by leveraging open source and working with Red Hat. Red Hat software is a key enabling technology for our animation pipeline."
