Red Hat shows beginnings of an Enterprise Computing Division.

Nov 23, 1998, 15:17 (1 Talkback[s])

In addition to their alliances, Sybase, Oracle, and another whose logo is broken, they discuss their new products targetted toward the enterprise.

Red Hat Linux 5.2 System Builder Edition and Red Hat Linux 5.2 Commercial Server Edition.

They also outline several new support packages they have available, such as a 10 or 25 incident "Call-Pack", and various annual support subscriptions.

Although Red Hat has encouraged reseller programs in the past, it appears that they are now agressively marketing to resellers with their new Enterprise Reseller Programs ("Red Hat Authorized Reseller" and "Red Hat Authorized System Builder").

Additionally, they are beginning to heavily market their training and certification programs (RHCI - Red Hat Certified Installer and RHCE - Red Hat Certified Engineer).

The beginnings of their webpage is located at http://www.redhat.com/enterprise/index.html, which is obviousl y not ready for prime time yet. Keep an eye here, however, as it looks like some big things will unfold at this page.
