Enterprise Linux Today: Red Hat Acquires Akopia, Will Integrate Its Product into e-Commerce Line

"Akopia's Interchange e-commerce application rounds out Red Hat's e-commerce platform."

"Thursday at LinuxWorld, Red Hat, Inc. announced that it has acquired Akopia, Inc., of Reston, Virginia and will integrate Akopia's popular Interchange open source e-commerce application into Red Hat's solutions portfolio. That portfolio now includes Interchange, the Stronghold Secure Web Server, and CCVS e-commerce payment system. Together these components form an e-commerce platform that Red Hat calls its comprehensive e-commerce solution stack."

"The terms of Red Hat's acquisition of Akopia were not announced. Red Hat's incorporation of Akopia's Interchange e-commerce application into its product line is likely to adversely affect Zelerate, Inc., the other open source e-commerce company, which recently announced layoffs and closure of its Albuquerque office."

"Red Hat emphasizes the completeness of its e-commerce platform's open source offerings for both the device and server markets. Red Hat's comprehensive solutions are tied together through Red Hat Network, an Internet-based service for delivering open source innovations, upgrades, security features, and user support quickly and cost-effectively."
