Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers


[ Thanks to The VAR Guy for this link. ]

"4. Coming to America… And JBoss: The VAR Guy met two attendees from Australia. Both represent major banks that are seeking to migrate off of proprietary middleware solutions (Oracle/BEA WebLogic, IBM WebSphere) and onto Red Hat JBoss. The big reason: The cost and complexity of proprietary middleware. This isn’t an isolated trend. During an informal lunch discussion, about 10 other attendees seated at the table shared similar middleware migration priorities.

"3. Where’s MySQL?: Dozens of open source application developers and integrators are at the event. But a big one — MySQL — is missing in action. Where is the open source database provider? The VAR Guy has sent an email to MySQL asking why they apparently aren’t attending. But the big winners appear to be EnterpriseDB and Ingres, which are enjoying heavy foot traffic in their booths."
