AIG Selects LinuxForce for Service and Support
AIG Direct has signed a contract with LinuxForce to provide Interim service and support for their E-commerce site.
Philadelphia, PA May 16, 2000 LinuxForce will provide a support function (including planning and implementation roles) for AIG personnel and sub-contractors performing a site relocation to an in-house facility. Charles B. Fleming, President of LinuxForce said, "Our experience in directing similar moves in the past has demonstrated the critical requirement of extensive detailed planning to execute a trouble free migration for a mission critical `in operation' site."
The implementation phase requires an oversight function with LinuxForce staff available to resolve unexpected occurrences, to keep the move on schedule and insure that server functionality is restored in a timely fashion. LinuxForce will also provide independent auditing, analysis and reporting services. Included in the contract is the administration of Solaris and NT systems as well as an Oracle Database.
