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