"Red Hat has acquired Makara, which develops software
for managing applications in the cloud. The move could strengthen
Red Hat's Cloud Foundations, platform as a service (PaaS) and
virtualization strategies. And yes, there are some key implications
for channel partners as well. Here's The VAR Guy's perspectives.
"According to the official Red Hat statement:
""Makara provides solutions to enable organizations to deploy,
manage, monitor and scale their applications on both private or
public clouds. Customers facing issues in moving applications to
the cloud and managing them efficiently can benefit from Makara's
solutions for scaling, rightsizing, rollback and monitoring. By
integrating the JBoss Enterprise Middleware infrastructure with
Makara's Cloud Application Platform, Red Hat can offer a more
comprehensive PaaS solution that allows organizations to quickly
transition their applications to both public and private clouds
with minimal modifications.""
