"The company announced the Enterprise Edition Program and the first three members of the docket: Oracle, Computer Associates and RealNetworks. As part of the offering, Red Hat is also committing to support selected applications from those companies. Applications supported will include the Oracle8i database server, Computer Associates' Unicenter TNG family and RealNetworks RealSystem G2 software family."
"For customers the Enterprise Edition Program means they can call Red Hat if problems arise running the Oracle8i product for Linux. Previously, separate and time-consuming calls to both vendors were necessary to sort out a problem. Red Hat says the partnerships will be followed by others later this year, including those for directory services, messaging and enterprise resource planning applications."
"The support services from Red Hat will be available 365 days per year and 24 hours per day - fairly standard for enterprise-class offerings. Pricing will vary depending on an end user's configuration, according to Paul McNamara, general manager of enterprise systems at Red Hat."
