Tuesday, November 21, 2006; 07:02 AM

Red Hat announced that strategic members of Red Hat's broad ecosystem of independent software vendors (ISVs) are already supporting and testing Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Beta 2 to prepare for Red Hat's next major subscription milestone (announced Friday, November 17). These software partners have begun testing to ensure early certification of their solutions at general availability of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 this winter and to guarantee that customers can benefit from the new technologies and cost-savings as quickly as possible.

"The ISV community is key to Red Hat's success. Over the last 5 years we have worked with the broad ISV community to ensure that customers have as many quality choices as possible when building architectures based on open source," said Tim Yeaton, Senior Vice President of Enterprise Solutions, Red Hat. "Together with the ISV community, we'll continue to have the best depth and breadth of applications for the success of our customers.”

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, to be released in early 2007, is the next major subscription milestone of Red Hat's flagship platform solution. With a continued focus on technologies designed to drive costs out of the infrastructure, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 will be the first solution to deliver complete, integrated, commercial-strength virtualization.

The Red Hat ISV Partner Program continues to attract industry-leading solution providers whose applications support the Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating system. The goal of the program has been to ensure that there are as many choices as possible for customers building architectures based on open source. Early partners in the program included IBM, Oracle, Computer Associates and BEA Systems. Many existing partners have worked over time to ensure that entire lines of enterprise applications support Red Hat Enterprise Linux. More than 2,000 ISV applications now support Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
