- HP to offer Red Hat products as part of its Standard Operating Platform for outsourcing clients
OPEN source systems vendor Red Hat Inc said in a statement it has joined the HP Enterprise Services Technology Alliance program.
With this, HP Enterprise Services offers Red Hat products as part of its Standard Operating Platform for outsourcing clients, and uses Red Hat JBoss Middleware technology and Red Hat Enterprise Linux as platforms for development and deployment of solutions to manage mission critical services in the enterprise.
“Becoming a part of HP’s Enterprise Services Technology Alliance solidifies the work we’ve done together to design, build and deploy solutions in a range of industries maximizing flexibility while containing infrastructure costs,” said Alan Sanchez, director of global strategic alliances, Red Hat.
