Oracle and HP are to open a financial services competency centre in New York City for banks and software vendor porting systems to Linux.

The jointly operated centre will focus on the migration of systems to industry-standard HP ProLiant(TM) servers and Oracle9i Real Application Clusters running on, but not limited to, Linux say the vendors. It will provide testing and porting capabilities either onsite to financial institutions and ISVs or is available in a secure facility hosted by Oracle and HP. Linux-trained technical support staff will be available to provide educational support to help ensure swift implementation and knowledge transfer for the solution deployed.

Anthony Fernicola, group vice president and general manager, Oracle Financial Services says: "Our objective is to provide financial services institutions and ISVs with a secure venue and expert resources to test the migration of their data from existing systems to the Oracle and HP solution, thus better preparing them for the actual switch over."

The initiative follows the creation by IBM of similar specialist Linux porting centres in Manhattan and London.
