The Bombay Stock Exchange is to implement IT infrastructure management technology from New Jersey-based Raritan Computer to provide system administrators with remote access to data centres for problem resolution.
The 150-year old Exchange has purchased Raritan's Dominion KX digital KVM switches and SX serial console servers for managing its network of hundreds of Windows-based and Unix servers.
S. B. Patankar, chief technology officer, BSE, says: "Raritan's integrated solution enables us to access and manage our equipment from anywhere there is a Web browser, eliminating the need to travel to the data centre. It also simplifies equipment management by providing one easy-to-use interface for all of our Windows and UNIX servers."
BSE's IT infrastructure supports a daily average of more than 1.5 million
trades and 10 million Web visitors.
