Manager-system

Our company works as a business process outsourcing (BPO) and software development organisation and certified ISO 270001 company. Current setup is 350 users, including development and BPO. Where we required a greater amount of security, we have migrated more than 300 machines to Red Hat Enterprise Linux®. Following are the areas where we have saved a lot of cost and achieved greater security:

  • Our external firewall is on Linux using IPTables. It supports two lease lines.

  • A Linux machine working as an internal router separates dev and BPO networks.

  • Postgres is the database backend for our BPO application.

  • Samba is used as the domain controller.

  • LDAP is used for centralized authentication.

  • Qmail is used as the mail server authenticating to LDAP.

  • Squid is the proxy server authenticating to LDAP.

  • CVS is the repository for code authenticating to LDAP.

  • Horde is the web-frontend for mail and CVS.

  • OpenOffice is used for documentation purposes.

  • Nagios is used for monitoring server availability.
