'Linux Saves Costs, Provides Flexibility' 

,----[ Quote ]
| Sheela Group is one of Asia's largest 
| manufacturers of P.U. (Polyurethane) foam 
| products. Geographically we are present in 
| three countries and are better known by our 
| brand 'Sleepwell'. We have 10 manufacturing 
| locations in India and 6 in Australia. Our 
| market share in the P.U. foam industry in 
| India and Australia is around 40 and 45 
| percent respectively. In India we have a 
| distribution network of over 70 distributors 
| and 3000 dealers.



Saving with FOSS

,----[ Quote ]
| The IT@School project in Kerala (where
| desktops replaced Microsoftâs Windows
| operating system with FOSS), the public sector
| behemoths Life Insurance Corporation of India
| (LIC) and New India Assurance Company and an
| unnamed private e-commerce firm are among the
| key case studies presented. For example, at
| the LIC, which handles digital data pertaining
| to over 100 million insurance policies, 3,500
| servers and 30,000 desktops (across about
| 2,155 offices) run on GNU/Linux.


Linux rising

,----[ Quote ]
| As mentioned above, this market is seeing some
| significant growth. Letâs find out how far these
| companies have helped to push the Linux market
| upwards.
| Today, many of Red Hatâs customers with valid
| subscriptions are enjoying the benefits of newer
| versions or upgrades of RHEL which has integrated
| virtualization, high availability and failover
| solutions, storage enhancements, greater
| manageability and more. Red Hat is also the
| leading named (organized) contributor to the
| Linux Kernel accounting for 13.2% of these.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
