Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Companies Outline Joint Development Efforts, Global Service
Offerings To Help Build Internet Infrastructure."
"Dell and Red Hat Inc. today announced the One Source Alliance
to accelerate commercial adoption of the Linux operating system and
to support businesses building Internet infrastructures. Linux is
now one of three strategic operating systems Dell factory installs
and supports globally, along with Microsoft Corp.'s Windows and
Novell Inc.'s NetWare."
"Red Hat and Dell offer customers a "pure play" for Linux
development and deployment as demand for the open source operating
system increases. Unlike many manufacturers, Dell does not have a
proprietary, in-house UNIX offering that competes for resources.
This agreement allows Dell to align its efforts with Red Hat to
deliver best-in-class Linux solutions to its customers and outlines
a tightly integrated package of joint development programs, global
services and marketing initiatives."
