Open Magazine - Your strategic guide to Open Source 

This week, we look at enterprise backup for Linux under the glare of a 
full performance stress test in openBench Labs. What we discover is 
that enterprise administrators can have backup any which way they want it, 
in the form of an enterprise backup package from CA that's hard to 
describe without superlatives. 

At Reuters, superlatives belong to its RMDS strategists who want to 
deliver their market data system to the many financial institutions now 
deploying Linux any which way these customers want. We talk to Casey 
Merkey, Reuters' global program manager for RMDS, who explains that Reuters 
operates on principles of business economics with the goal of being the 
'honest broker' for platform choice.
