Redmayne-Bentley, a stock broker firm in the UK switched from an aging legacy Unix platform to SUSE Linux Enterprise on Unisys systems. The firm’s main issues were to reduce costs, improve security and provide constant availability, which they did with Unisys’s and Novell’s help, resulting in:

  • Transaction speeds jumped 10x
  • Batch processing dropped to less than an 1/8th of previous times
  • Improved failbacks and security
  • No disruption to ongoing business has a well-written wrapup on this case study, while the Unisys site has the definitive view of the migration.
