London Stock Exchange creates virtual Turquoise access ahead of Linux big-bang

,----[ Quote ]
| An âultra-fastâ link between the datacentres 
| of the London Stock Exchange and Turquoise 
| has gone live, gearing the dark pool trading 
| venue for a big-bang Linux migration.
| Traders with hosted systems at the LSE are 
| now able to access Turquoise on the free 
| fast link, ahead of Turquoiseâs migration to 
| the Millennium Exchange platform, which is 
| Linux and Sun Solaris Unix-based, with 
| Oracle databases. Turquoise currently runs 
| on the Java-based Tradexpress platform from 
| supplier Cinnober.

Stacking up the hypervisors

,----[ Quote ]
| It was initially offered by many companies 
| including major Linux distributors such as 
| Red Hat and Novel, Virtual Iron (bought by 
| Oracle), Oracle and Citrix but there's been 
| some consolidation in the market.  Red Hat 
| and Novell steered away from Xen and 
| committed to rival open-source KVM while 
| Oracle-Sun-Virtual Iron and Citrix stuck 
| with it.
| The Linux players still have to support 
| their own operating system distros - the 
| main part of their businesses - so that's 
| what they wanted to focus on. The 
| development effort around Xen didn't 
| leverage the development of their OS 
| products as much as they liked. Their 
| mainline Linux development diverged from the 
| hypervisor too much and they wanted to bring 
| that back together.
| KVM makes more use of operating system 
| developments than Xen, which is more focused 
| on the hypervisor. So it's useful for Oracle 
| where the operating system is a secondary 
| business.
| If your interest in a pure hypervisor is 
| more important than Linux per se, Xen is 
| more relevant.
| But if you're more interested in Linux, 
| that's where KVM comes to bear.



London Stock Exchangeâs new bond market will be on Linux â in a year

,----[ Quote ]
| The London Stock Exchange has launched a new
| electronic order book for retail bonds,
| temporarily basing it on its outgoing
| Microsoft .Net-based TradElect platform.

| until at least the end of the year, when the
| LSEâs Linux-based platform, called
| MillenniumIT, goes live.
