Red Hat drives customer value beyond Linux

By : |November 20, 2006 0

BERLIN: Open source solutions provider Red Hat today announced plans to combine a virtualized operating system and a full set of building blocks for building service-oriented (SOA) solutions to provide a flexible, low-cost foundation for enterprise computing.

Red Hat said in a statement that it believed virtualization and SOA are technology strategies that companies should adopt to realize long-term cost savings while increasing productivity and performance.



Red Hat launched its Open Source Architecture for the Enterprise’ strategy in 2002. Starting with the core Linux platform, Red Hat worked to build an ecosystem that included a robust hardware and software partner ecosystem, storage, management and security. With the acquisition of JBoss in June, Red Hat is now driving value into the middleware layer.  This will enable customers to take advantage of SOA and rich internet applications.

During JBoss World Berlin, the company announced advancements in the JBoss Enterprise Middleware Suite that improves SOA integration and interoperability.

JBoss ESB is a key component in an SOA by intermediating interactions between enterprise applications, business services, business components, and middleware to integrate and automate business processes. In addition, the company is previewing new Jboss Application Server 5.0 features that enhance performance, scalability and interoperability. JEMS is fully integrated with Red Hat Enterprise Linux so that customers can extend the value of open source further into their organizations.

"Red Hat’s core technology focus in 2006 was virtualization. Mid-way through the year we began working to integrate the efficiency of virtualization with the flexibility of SOA. Red Hat’s goal is to eliminate the dependency on pricey, monolithic platforms that guarantee lock-in and products that must be cobbled together," said Paul Cormier, executive vice president of Engineering at Red Hat.

"JBoss continues to lead in innovation with their middleware suite. The merging and integration of these technologies with the core platform will present more opportunities for value through the power of open source for our customers," he added.
