"As part of its strategy to become a one-stop shop for utilities and other tools, Red Hat has acquired performance management software vendor Bluecurve and has launched the redhat.com Marketplace portal."
"The acquisition of Bluecurve for $35 million in stock allows Red Hat (stock: RHAT) to offer a tool for monitoring Linux systems. Developers can use Bluecurve to simulate transactions and scale their infrastructures to meet service-level agreements."
"The vendor's redhat.com Marketplace, meanwhile, is being promoted as a portal through which developers can find software, hardware, and support services offered by Red Hat and other suppliers. Free demo versions of popular Internet solutions are available now at www.redhat.com/marketplace."
