Hi Serge,

   I can give you some references from our clients.  We only use Erlang, and 
it has been running in production for more than 3 years.  

Our clients are A grade banks and also some private companies that operate in 
the financial sector.

Another example is the article from British Telecom, the reliability of the 
Ericsson switches, and the volumes of calls - which also translates to 
revenue.

The CIO can even contact me, as we answer the same questions for other banks.  
In actual fact we start implementations in 5 new countries during January and 
February, so there is a reliable track record that Erlang can deliver.

The one production system, which has been a pilot project for 12 months now :) 
- is handling 650 000 financial transactions a month, total value being 
managed by the system - about 30 000 000 USD per month.

Kind regards
Daniel
