Red Hat Enterprise Linux Recognized for Product Innovation
May 21, 2009
by Red Hat Enterprise Linux Team
Network Products Guide, an industry publication on information technologies and solutions, named the winners of its 2009 Product Innovation Awards this week, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3 achieved top honors in the Operating Systems category.
The annual Product Innovation awards program “recognizes and honors worldwide vendors for their innovative and groundbreaking products that are bringing essential and incremental changes and are setting the bar higher for others in all areas of information technology,” according to Network Products Guide.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux released the third upgrade to its Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 platform in January 2009, driving innovation through increased virtualization scalability, expanded hardware platform support, including support to Intel’s new Nehalem architecture, and incorporation of Java technologies with OpenJDK, a high-performance, fully open source implementation of Java Server Edition 6. The Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3 release also included over 150 other additions and updates. The platform is developed using the open source development model, an approach which drives rapid innovation, and is sold by subscription to deliver continuous value to customers. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 was the first open source solution to deliver commercial-quality virtualization fully integrated into the operating system.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux has achieved a number of recent accolades, including:
- 2009 Datamation Product of the Year for the second consecutive year in the Enterprise Linux category
- SYS-CON Virtualization Conference & Expo Show Awards:
- Best Overall Virtualization Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Advanced Platform
