Linux move reaps dividends for stockbroker
Since stockbroker Redmayne-Bentley revamped its IT infrastructure with a move to Linux the business has been reaping the rewards.
The Leeds-based company moved onto a Linux-based platform last year after deciding an open source environment was the right choice for its growing business in a rapidly changing regulatory landscape.
The migration saw a series of applications moved onto a Linux environment on Unisys ES7000/one Enterprise Servers.
A major part of the business are the financial transactions carried out on bespoke software which previously sat on the old, Unix-based system.
