First Integrated Red Hat Application Stack Now Available

Red Hat announced two significant milestones related to its acquisition of JBoss. As of today, multi-platform JBoss enterprise middleware subscriptions are available to Red Hat channel partners globally, through major distributors. In addition, the new Red Hat Application Stack subscription, an integrated solution of leading open source technology, is available online on Red Hat Network.

"Ninety days ago, Red Hat invested in the future of open source in the enterprise by acquiring JBoss," said Tim Yeaton, Senior Vice President of Enterprise Solutions, Red Hat. "Today, we reach one of our first milestones as customers, developers and partners can now tangibly benefit from the new JBoss channel offerings and the integrated, tested Red Hat Application Stack."

As the open source alternative to integrated proprietary application platforms, the Red Hat Application Stack is perfect for running standards-based LAMP or Java-based applications. The Red Hat Application Stack includes end-to-end support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux, JBoss Application Server, JBoss Hibernate and the leading open source databases, including MySQL & PostgreSQL. It is delivered in a clear and simple subscription model that includes the software, support, updates and upgrades, all delivered online through Red Hat Network. Future Red Hat stacks will seek to combine open source technologies into solutions specifically optimized for vertical markets, such as telecommunications and healthcare.

Red Hat is meeting the rising demand for open source in global channels by making all JBoss middleware solutions, including the Red Hat Application Stack, now available through major global distributors. The Red Hat Application Stack offering is ideal for reseller partners who want to deliver a simple, easy-to-order, integrated solution in a low-cost subscription model with no client access licenses or extra support or maintenance fees. Red Hat resellers and JBoss partners will find the combination of Red Hat Enterprise Linux and JBoss middleware technologies now provides their customers a strong foundation to realize the benefits of open source, as well as a low-cost on-ramp to service-oriented architectures (SOA).

"As an award-winning, national provider of technology solutions for the enterprise, we are pleased to offer the new Red Hat Application Stack and JBoss subscriptions," said Stephen Soper, Director of Enterprise Software, FusionStorm. "Our main goal is to help our customers save money and grow their business.
