Novell Delivers Linux Server London Stock Exchange

Novell has announced that SUSE Linux Enterprise Server will be used to support the London Stock Exchange's new trading platform. The open source system will help the exchange to manage the high volume of traffic passing through its systems and, it is hoped, provide a high performance, secure, green and interoperable platform, capable of making intelligent use of virtual and physical environments.

SUSE Linux Enterprise Server will help to increase the Millennium Exchange system's capacity to cope with high-volume trading. As a server operating system SUSE Linux Enterprise Server is typically regarded as a highly-reliable and secure system suited to powering both physical and virtual mission-critical workloads. With this foundation correctly deployed, enterprises such as the London Stock Exchange can deliver business services, enable secure networks, and manage heterogeneous IT resources.

"The LSE is the most prestigious and most recognized exchange in the world so we are proud to be the technology partner of choice for this important deployment," said Sean McCarry, UK country manager at Novell. "As organizations look to enhance their efficiency they are increasingly looking to technologies such as virtualization, high-performance computing and collaboration platforms to achieve their goal. Using SUSE Linux Enterprise Server from Novell, the LSE will benefit from all of these innovations in an integrated and future-proofed platform."
