"Red Hat, Inc., (Nasdaq:RHAT), a leader in developing, deploying and managing open source Internet infrastructure, today announced that the Internet Audio Division of 3Com Corporation (Nasdaq:COMS), uses Red Hat Linux to power its Web and database servers. These servers power the Kerbango Tuning Service--the heart of 3Com's forthcoming Kerbango Internet Radio, which will provide easy access to thousands of worldwide Internet audio streams without a personal computer."

"Our Web servers running on Red Hat Linux are currently experiencing an uptime of 308 days with roughly 99.9 percent availability worldwide," said John Bryant, director of Internet development for 3Com's Internet Audio Division. "We selected Red Hat because of its reliability and position in the Linux space. Its pre- made Linux packages and overall support of Linux development made it the obvious choice for us."

"3Com's Kerbango Internet Radio, expected to be available later this year, will use the Kerbango Tuning Service to allow consumers to find and listen to Internet audio from around the world--without a computer."
