Linux for Financial Sites

By tfu ·
Does anyone know of any implementations of linux for financial services sites for online trading, banking, etc. How much have people embraced linux and other open source technologies(php, apache, cvs, etc) in financial services?

Linux for Financial Sites

by mtp In reply to Linux for Financial Sites

I have considerable experience in the financial services sector as a management consultant. I have not witnessed a rush into Linux. Although Linux is a good performer and brings with it many of the flexibility/scaleability advantages characteristic of UNIX implementations, performance of the application is only a component of the overall decision. The labor market for Linux is still tight, the application development/lifecycle tools in that environment are not as feature-rich as those availableunder Windows, and the third-party support and expertise marketplace is immature.

The hybrid Windows front-end/UNIX back-end architecture still dominates financial services. Linux may become the back-end of choice, but I do not see it becoming a panacea anytime soon.

The first answer looks good to me. If that doesn't work, try something else. Hope this helps.
