Red Hat (NYSE: RHT), the world's leading provider of open source solutions, and Arkelis NV, a fully owned subsidiary of Swift, the global provider of secure financial messaging services, today announced that financial institutions can deploy Arkelis' Advanced Messaging Hub (AMH) on Red Hat Enterprise Linux to manage significant volumes of incoming and outgoing messaging traffic more effectively.
The Arkelis AMH solution was previously available with other proprietary software platforms. Red Hat and Arkelis worked closely together to port the AMH solution to Linux-based Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating system.
Rich Feldmann, director, financial services industry, Red Hat, Inc., said, "The combined Red Hat and Arkelis solution gives financial institutions the reliability and performance they absolutely require to run their mission-critical messaging applications – all with the cost-effectiveness of Linux-based solutions.
Hans Cobben, Chief Executive Officer, Arkelis, said, "Making AMH available on Red Hat's Linux platform is another important strategic step for Arkelis toward deploying highly performing and technologically advanced core messaging infrastructure for top tier financial institutions at a very competitive TCO level. It allows Arkelis and its customers to respond in an agile manner to an ever more volatile economic context thriving on a cost-effective roll out of scalable messaging infrastructure.
Arkelis' Outsourced Messaging service is focused on the needs of multi-entity, multinational, global financial institutions which have substantial volumes of messages as well as high availability and operational requirements. Arkelis' Advanced Messaging Hub (AMH) is a highly scalable, customisable, multi-network messaging hub. With Red Hat Enterprise Linux, AMH customers can take advantage of the cost advantages associated with running high-performing Linux-based operating system platforms.
