NewsBytes: CA Taking Red Hat Linux To Fortune 500

“Enterprise software giant Computer Associates [NYSE:CA] has
decided to help push Red Hat Linux in a big way into Fortune 1000
enterprise space. The firms announced a joint marketing agreement
today, in a press conference at the LinuxWorld trade now underway
in San Jose.”

“The agreement to push Red Hat’s distribution is not exclusive,
said Yogesh Gupta, CA vice president of product strategy. But the
two firms plan between them to push a million CD-ROM disks into the
enterprise market, each carrying Red Hat’s distribution of Linux
and a compatible version of CA’s Unicenter TNG Framework.”

“Gupta said the decision to team with Red Hat was easy because
of Red Hat’s leading position in the US marketplace and its “strong
enterprise bent.””
