Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Latest Linux financial services deployment reflects
increasing enterprise penetration."
"The Turbolinux deployment, implemented in under 10 hours on
Hewlett-Packard Netserver LH 3000 servers, allows Liderar Seguros'
40 branch offices to run their applications as if they were in the
headquarter office, with remote secure online access to customer
transactions and financial information."
"Liderar Seguros is pleased with the initial performance of the
Turbolinux deployment. "We're very pleased with the Turbolinux
solution," said Gustavo Clementi, Systems Manager for Liderar
Seguros. "We eliminated many problems and our branch offices find
it much easier and less expensive to link up to our headquarter's
operations and data."
"Not surprisingly, security was said to be the paramount issue
for the insurance company. The systems integration firm managing
the deployment installed Turbolinux Server proxy/firewalls using
secure shell technology that funnels data through an encrypted
channel for inter-branch communications."
