"Moving enterprise IT software to the cloud isn't just a technology issue, it's software support entitlement issue as well.

"Linux vendor Red Hat (NYSE: RHT) today is unveiling a new program dubbed Red Hat Cloud Access through which current Red Hat Enterprise Linux subscribers can leverage their existing support subscriptions for cloud deployments.

"With Red Hat Cloud Access, enterprises that have Red Hat Enterprise Linux premium subscriptions can move them to Amazon's EC2 cloud. As a result, Red Hat is enabling its customers to migrate to the cloud with their existing subscriptions. Red Hat is also now set to ensure that the Amazon images of its Red Hat Enterprise Linux are consistent with the version updates that enterprises deploy on-premises."
