Red Hat round-up. EC to review Oracle-Sun. Dedicated Ubuntu support. And more.
Red Hat announcements round-up
Red Hat announced a whole heap of products and projects this week. They should have organized an event to coincide with all the announcements. Or something. The biggest news was probably the launch of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.4 including KVM and other virtualization capabilities, while Red Hat and HP partnered to optimize Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization for HP BladeSystem Matrix. The company also revealed that Red Hat Network Satellite 5.3 is now available and launched its Deltacloud project to enable private/public cloud interoperability while the JBoss community unveiled the GateIn portal, the future of the JBoss Portal and eXo Portal projects, and launched the Savara project to build tools for enterprise and solution architects.
