Red Hat: Quiet winner amid Sun's server apocalypse?

,----[ Quote ]
| Oracle has thrown down the hardware gauntlet against IBM to stem the bleeding at 
| soon-to-be-acquired Sun Microsystemsâassuming the EU plays alongâbut Red Hat may 
| be among the big winners amid the server wars.


Synnex, Tech Data compete for open source dominance

,----[ Quote ]
| The open source vendor just launched its Red Hat Catalyst program in North 
| America, which will include an interactive Web portal to facilitate the 
| formation of a community around its partner ecosystem, including resellers, 
| system integrators, ISVs and hardware vendors. This is meant to help Red Hat 
| partners penetrate the market around open source â estimated to be around US$30 
| billion and growing â and create total solutions. 


Summit workshop gives Red Hat training feedback

,----[ Quote ]
| Unlike all the rest of the sessions at the Red Hat Summit, one was more dialogue 
| than lecture. In the RHCE and RHCT (Red Hat Certified Engineer and Red Hat 
| Certified Technician, respectively) Focus Chat with Randy Russell, Red Hat's 
| director of certification Russell departed from past practice and turned the 
| forum over directly to the small audience rather than directing the talk 
| himself.


Open-source companies' developer dilemma

,----[ Quote ]
| No, the reason companies purchase a RHEL subscription comes down to 
| certification that RHEL works with a wide variety of hardware and software, as 
| well as with the Red Hat Network, which delivers updates to an enterprise's RHEL 
| servers.
| In other words, IT operations pay Red Hat to help manage their Linux servers in 
| production. The money is in operations.



A Few Details On Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6

,----[ Quote ]
| Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.4 was just released, but Red Hat engineers have
| already been working on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.0 and today a few details
| regarding this next major feature release were learned during the Red Hat
| Summit in Chicago. Details regarding RHEL 6.0 are scant, especially with Red
| Hat being a public company and all, but some new information was gained today
| and some signals of what's coming down the pipe can already be spotted in
| Fedora.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
