Systems Integrator ETPL joins prestigious Asianux Consortium

Enterprise Technology (Pvt) Ltd (ETPL) - one of the leading systems integrators in Sri Lanka – recently joined the prestigious Asianux Consortium as its sixth member.

Established in 2003, the membership of Asianux Consortium comprises Red Flag Co., Ltd. of China, Miracle Linux Corporation of Japan), HANCOM Inc. of Korea, VietSoftware Inc. of Vietnam and WTEC Co., Ltd. of Thailand and ETPL as the most recent member. The Asianux Consortium is based on the concepts of a ‘4-CO’ business model: Co-Development, Co-Brand, Co-Support and Co-Marketing. The aim of the Asianux Consortium is to co-develop a unified Linux platform for businesses. Within a span of six years, Asianux has consolidated its position as the third biggest Linux operating system in the world and the largest in Asia, the new local member said.

Since its inception in June 1996, ETPL – a subsidiary of Olancom (Pvt) Limited - has played an important role in promoting Linux based solutions for corporate customers as well as the government sector in Sri Lanka.

“A leading telecom operator in Sri Lanka has already decided to deploy one of their key applications on Asianux powered Linux servers. This decision not only shows the confidence our customers have in ETPL and Asianux Linux but also opens up new horizons in the price-performance of the IT infrastructure for corporate Sri Lanka,” said Kithsiri Gunasekera-Director/Chief Executive Officer, ETPL.

“We are happy to partner with Asianux Consortium as we firmly believe that a business Linux platform will bring about a paradigm shift in the enterprise computing and systems integration arena” he further added.

Open source software such as Linux, and specifically Asianux as a business operating platform, provides businesses and government users a technically feasible and financially viable alternative to commercially available server operating platforms resulting in considerable savings in capital and support expenses.
