"E-commerce is a challenge. Like building a website people want to visit and that a company can easily maintain. A site that doesn't just sell but also builds brand recognition."

"That's the challenge Neil Day faced at HomeWarehouse.com. And he has created a solution that succeeds on all counts, thanks to careful design, thoughtful content, and a solid technical foundation built on Red Hat Linux."

"Red Hat Linux helped us build a very sophisticated web farm and office infrastructure very quickly and inexpensively," says Neil Day, HomeWarehouse's Vice President of Engineering. "Our Web Application Server is Red Hat Linux, running on generic Intel x86 hardware. This is a very cost-effective, high-performance solution. The cost of adding additional application servers to our Web farm is negligible, and thus has allowed HomeWarehouse.com to focus our financial resources on development." Red Hat Linux meshes well with the other software tools used by HomeWarehouse, including Apache, Jserv, GSP, and the Oracle 8i database."
