Red Hat Solutions Deliver Flexibility and Reliability for InfoCamere

InfoCamere Relies on Red Hat and JBoss Solutions for Reliability and Ease of Use for Its Mission-critical Systems

Red Hat announced that InfoCamere, an organization responsible for managing the IT systems that connect and secure over 100 Italian Chambers of Commerce, relies on Red Hat and JBoss solutions for flexibility, reliability and ease of use for its mission-critical systems.

InfoCamere's IT infrastructure, covering all 300 local offices, must ensure that its users, including administrations, companies and individuals, have immediate access to documents, information and legal data stored in the Chambers' archives. When InfoCamere began developing its first Internet platform in 2000, it utilized Red Hat Linux 7.2 in both testing and production environments. After demonstrating high levels of reliability, the ability to succeed in critical production environments and flexibility with an extensive application ecosystem, InfoCamere decided to expand its use of Red Hat solutions to Red Hat Enterprise Linux and JBoss Enterprise Application Platform.

"As evidence of the maturity of the solution and the trust that we place in Red Hat, Red Hat Enterprise Linux systems are used throughout our internal heterogeneous IT architecture," said Corrado Claut, system and architecture management at InfoCamere. "We use Red Hat extensively throughout our architecture for not only flexibility and compatibility, but also for the performance levels and advanced support services that provide great reliability and real business advantage for us."

Today, Red Hat Enterprise Linux is used on all of InfoCamere's mail systems and is the main production platform for many of the websites that the organization runs for the Italian Chambers of Commerce. Many of the company's Java applications also run on Red Hat Enterprise Linux with a combination of JBoss and Tomcat application servers.

"In addition to our systems that run our internal mail and communications for the Chambers of Commerce, we use Red Hat and JBoss solutions to support our PEC (Posta Elettronic Certificata) solution that digitally delivers legal documents that must comply with rigid requirements and extremely high service levels," said Claut. "Red Hat solutions, including Red Hat Enterprise Linux and JBoss Enterprise Application Platform, offer compliance, 24x7 reliable support service, availability of 99.8 percent and even more benefits, making them an excellent fit for our needs."

Red Hat Enterprise Linux also provides the reliable platform for InfoCamere's Legaldoc, a document-archiving service used for the reception, signature, time stamping and conservation of electronic documents that offers significant cost, space and time savings. The organization's service for collecting HASH signature documents relies on Red Hat solutions for reliability, scalability and security. InfoCamere's Oracle-based database servers are also installed on Red Hat Enterprise Linux systems to achieve installation and maintenance cost savings.

"JBoss Enterprise Application Platform is used widely throughout the company," said Claut. "As the technology expands, we have increased its presence on our systems. We use JBoss solutions for the significant cost savings, expanded performance and ease of installation and management. We're also beginning migration to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5."

InfoCamere has also leveraged Red Hat Training offerings and boasts two employees who have achieved Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) certification to expand InfoCamere's in-house knowledge of Red Hat solutions.
