10,000 Linux Desktops at India’s Canara Bank

The Sydney Morning Herald reports, in “Red Hat clinches big Indian bank deal,” that “Red Hat India has signed a deal with one of India’s top five banks to provide its enterprise Linux software for 10,000 desktops and 1000 servers, a company executive said today.”

“The software has so far been deployed at 600 of Canara Bank’s more than 2500 branches, Javed Tapia, director, Red Hat India, said.”

Efforts over the past few years are beginning to pay off in large deployments such as this one. And, these deployments are happening before they are reported widely in the press; meaning they are not mere bargaining positions to extract a better price from Microsoft.
