Red Hat Named a Leader in Independent Information as a Service (IaaS) Report
February 13, 2008
by JBoss Team
Red Hat was recently among the select companies that Forrester Research invited to participate in its Q1 2008, Forrester Wave Report, Information-As-A-Service. In its evaluation, Forrester recognized Red Hat as a leader in IaaS, citing MetaMatrix as an asset to the company.
From the report:
“Red Hat: Strong offering and good momentum. Last year, Red Hat acquired the assets of MetaMatrix, which was already a key IaaS player. Red Hat is aiming to deliver a comprehensive IaaS solution that can meet all possible use cases. MetaMatrix has in the past executed an effective IaaS strategy, which is why it already has credible customer deployments that span various industries, including financial services, telecommunications, government and retail.”
This is the first time that Red Hat has participated in this report with Forrester and we’re really thrilled to be considered among the leaders in this space. IaaS is a key element of successful service-oriented architectures deployments and the MetaMatrix Enterprise Data Services Platform is a proven technology for addressing IaaS requirements.
