Red Hat moves ahead with JBoss integrationRaven Zachary, September 19, 2006 @ 12:48 pm ET
Red Hat made an announcement yesterday concerning its acquisition of JBoss. The deal closed over 90 days ago and Red Hat was ready to talk specifics about integrating JBoss’ products and services into the Red Hat portfolio. This announcement has two main components:
- JBoss subscriptions are now available through Red Hat’s global channel partners, providing a much greater reach than existed previously.
- The Red Hat Application Stack aimed at LAMP and Java deployments. The stack includes Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), JBoss Application Server, Apache Tomcat, JBoss Hibernate, and support for MySQL and PostgreSQL. Additional LAMP components, such as Apache Web Server, PHP, and Perl, are included as part of RHEL.
In addition, Red Hat remains committed to JBoss multi-platform support. Although its new stack offering is specific to RHEL, the full range of JBoss subscriptions will remain available for other operating systems, such as Solaris and Windows.
