Today, the CME Group runs its mission-critical applications, including its trading applications that serve customers in more than 150 countries, on Red Hat Enterprise Linux. The company transitioned off of proprietary Unix platforms several years ago in an effort to curb increasing costs associated with those systems. Since, then, the CME Group has not only saved money, it also has increased productivity and innovation and has seen dramatic improvements in its IT infrastructure’s speed, stability and performance.
