"Linux power Red Hat wants to be your buddy, your pal and your
partner. The company's new Red Hat Certified Service Provider
Program (RHCSP; yup, it's a mouthful) offers specialized consulting
and co-marketing programs, as well as technology and support
services for ASP, ISPs, Web hosts, and other types of service
"The program, offers 24 x 7 critical status support, backup
systems administration, maximum server availability and systems
management to service providers. The program also includes on-site
consulting, beta program access, and high-end, "level 3"
engineering support and bug fixes...."
"Red Hat's service-provider partnering plans aren't pie in the
sky. Early allies include Dell Computer's ISP division, known as
DellHost; Interland; Interliant; and NewRiverNet Communications. By
the end of the year, Red Hat believes it will have about
half-a-dozen more partners."
