Banco Azteca migrated from a mix of UNIX operating systems to a fully standardized environment, with 500 HP and Intel servers running on Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Additionally, Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform helps ensure that Banco Azteca's applications are always running as efficiently and effectively as possible.
Red Hat's technologies serve as a cost-effective foundation for future growth, giving Banco Azteca the flexibility and scalability to respond to customers' changing needs—and the performance to meet and exceed today's user experience expectations. “Red Hat Enterprise Linux provides a robust, efficient, and safe solution at a low cost. When combined with other Red Hat offerings, it has helped us provide better services to our customers,” says Efraín Carballo, director of technology services at Banco Azteca.
Banco Azteca implemented its new environment with crucial guidance from Red Hat Consulting, helping ensure that the new infrastructure would be based on the best possible design for optimal performance. Red Hat Training also played a critical role in the deployment, giving Banco Azteca's staff members the tools, knowledge, and even the certifications necessary to make the most of their new environment.
In 2014, Jorge Juárez Acevedo, the IT Manager at Banco Azteca, was recognized as the Red Hat Certified Professional of the Year. His skills as a Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA), Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE), Red Hat Certified Virtualization Administrator (RHCVA), and Red Hat Certified Datacenter Specialist (RHCDS) provided practical expertise to help the company's IT team migrate to the new infrastructure and to continue to maintain services 24 hours a day.
