Linux

Red Hat (NYSE: RHT), the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced that Trader Media Group and its website Autotrader.co.uk, the UK's no 1 motoring website, has standardised its platform on Red Hat Enterprise Linux and JBoss Enterprise Application Platform. The combined Red Hat solution has given Trader Media Group a more resilient, high-performing and stable platform allowing Auto Trader's internal operations team to scale as the company continues to grow.

As the UK’s No. 1 motoring website, with over 10.3 million monthly unique users, who carry out over 106 million searches on new and used vehicles, the availability, stability and speed of the Auto Trader website is key to the company maintaining its leadership in the market.* Users seek a fast, accessible site that is available 24 hours per day, seven days per week.

“In JBoss we have acquired a platform that already includes all the core components required, such as messaging and Web Services, resulting in an enterprise-level infrastructure, out of the box. We are more than happy with JBoss Enterprise Application Platform. Our 60-strong development team is happy with the implementation and the operation teams understand it, laying strong foundations for the future,” said Peter Hanlon, chief technical architect, Trader Media Group.
