TechWeb: Red Hat Moves Beyond Operating Systems

“As part of its strategy to become a one-stop shop for
utilities and other tools, Red Hat has acquired performance
management software vendor Bluecurve and has launched the
redhat.com Marketplace portal.”

“The acquisition of Bluecurve for $35 million in stock allows
Red Hat (stock: RHAT) to offer a tool for monitoring Linux systems.
Developers can use Bluecurve to simulate transactions and scale
their infrastructures to meet service-level agreements.”

“The vendor’s redhat.com Marketplace, meanwhile, is being
promoted as a portal through which developers can find software,
hardware, and support services offered by Red Hat and other
suppliers. Free demo versions of popular Internet solutions are
available now at www.redhat.com/marketplace.”
