"Red Hat, the leader in open source Internet infrastructure solutions, announced today the IA-64 JumpStart Program, which provides all the software, tools, support and training needed for independent software and hardware vendors (ISVs and IHVs) to quickly develop solutions for Red Hat Linux on Intel's new Itanium IA-64 architecture."

"Program members receive a wide range of free services and can purchase additional levels of support and training from Red Hat--often at a significant discount. Avanti, Rational, Sendmail, Steeleye, Tibco and Unify are among the leading software vendors who have already joined the program to leverage Red Hat's unmatched open source development and support expertise."

"The JumpStart Program continues Red Hat's commitment to delivering everything needed to quickly and easily embrace Red Hat Linux and other open source solutions in the next generation of computing," said Michael Tiemann, chief technical officer at Red Hat, Inc."
