Red Hat Talks Up Open Source Architecture

Red Hat Talks Up Open Source Architecture

Red Hat is talking of building a so-called Open Source Architecture to provide a standards-based open source infrastructure focusing on management and broad applications support across multiple hardware environments. Red Hat said the Open Source Architecture would provide a secure, scalable and manageable infrastructure for deploying enterprise business applications. The first phase in building the stuff is the platform layer. The upcoming Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 is supposed to be the unifying platform and support seven hardware architectures for both client and server deployments. In the second phase, Red Hat plans to address other infrastructure areas including a Web applications framework. Red Hat has been working with the ObjectWeb Consortium, the Apache Foundation and the Eclipse IDE development community to suss out the open source Web applications framework, J2EE implementation, and associated development tools. The third phase will focus on virtualization and management capabilities and include storage and system provisioning and application resource management. Red Hat said the Open Source Architecture would implement an enterprise-wide security infrastruct the open source communities in building the Open Source Architecture. The idea is to provide subscription-based services for deploying the Open Source Architecture based on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux platform.
