2008: Decision Year for RIAs - October 20-22, 2008 San Jose


Red Hat News Desk

You have heard how important avoiding vendor lock-in has become when thinking about hosting your applications in the cloud. In his session at the 11th International Cloud Expo, Steven Citron-Pousty, Developer Advocate and OpenShift Product Marketing Manager at Red Hat, will show you ...
Choosing how to build a cloud is perhaps the biggest strategic decision IT leaders will make this decade. It will determine their organizational competitiveness, flexibility, and IT economics. In his General Session at the 11th International Cloud Expo, Gordon Haff, Cloud Evangelist ...
Red Hat, still feeding for the moment off the shift from Unix to Linux, fell better than 4.8% evening out at $55.90 after-hours Monday when it said its fiscal Q2 earnings were down year-on-year because of investments and acquisition-related expenses.
Red Hat has countersued Twin Peaks Software, the California outfit that back in February and again in an amended complaint in July alleged that Gluster, Red Hat’s bought-in storage subsidiary, infringes an August 2008 patent it holds on widgetry called a Mirror File System. Despite a...
Are you really saving as much as you think you are with non-paid community Linux? Every organization is looking for more ways to be efficient. How can you provide better service to your organization and eliminate the things that drain productivity and efficiency? Red Hat can help.
This IDC white paper compares organizations using a commercial Linux subscription from Red Hat to support their Linux servers with organizations that are using a mixed environment of both commercially supported and non-paid Linux distributions and organizations that are primarily using...

Red Hat is planning to commercialize its 13-month-old OpenShift PaaS later this year when it splits the widgetry into two initial tiers: FreeShift and MegaShift. Until then it’ll be available as a developer preview. FreeShift will offer three small gears, the ability to auto-scale an...
Red Hat’s share price crumbled ~10% after it reported its fiscal first-quarter numbers Wednesday and its billings weren’t look that great. It also took a tuck in its full-year revenue guidance cutting it from $1.34 billion-$1.36 billion to $1.32 billion-$1.34 billion. It was expected...
Perhaps you will vaguely remember that a year ago CloudForms was supposed to be an infrastructure-as-a-service platform from Red Hat. If you don’t it’s just as well because it’s not anymore. It had to give way when Red Hat officially embraced OpenStack as an IaaS platform in April ...
Red Hat claims that the enterprise isn’t using these newfangled platforms-as-a-service to develop software very much because they don’t meet its needs. The enterprise is worried about compliance, enterprise architecture standards, IT governance, security, application lifecycle manage...

Red Hat’s Storage 2.0, derived from its $136 million acquisition of Gluster six months ago, went into worldwide private beta Tuesday. Red Hat says GA depends on how the beta goes. The software-only appliance, which since December is no longer CentOS-based and uses Red Hat’s Scalable ...
Twin Peaks Software is suing open source champion Red Hat and its Gluster subsidiary for patent infringement in District Court in California. It claims they’re treading on its patented Mirror File System involving the management of data on computer networks. The patent, US No 7,418,4...
Apache Deltacloud, the Red Hat-contributed ReSTful API that abstracts differences between clouds so services on any cloud can be managed – provided of course there’s a driver – has graduated from the Apache Foundation’s incubator and is now a full-fledged Top-Level Project (TLP). The...

Cloud computing is a significant evolution. It’s changing the way we think about how we deliver our computational infrastructure to end users. Determining which strategy is right for your organization depends on your key business goals, requirements, and IT capabilities. This webinar d...
Public cloud resources can augment in-house IT in many useful ways. In fact, they can be so useful and easy to consume that we see public clouds widely used in organizations without going through the usual IT processes and procedures – indeed, that’s often sort of the point. Ad hoc clo...
With so many cloud options available, it’s difficult to determine what strategy, architecture, and specific solutions are best for your enterprise. This white paper, the first in a series of four, offers practical advice for cutting through the clutter and getting started with a privat...
Cloud computing is the convergence of a variety of trends, including network-centric application access, the consumerization of IT, greatly increased scale and complexity, open source, and virtualization. Many organizations are adopting private clouds because they want to gain the oper...
