Red Hat驱动客户价值超越Linux

虚拟化和服务导向型架构解决方案将成为Red Hat 2007年客户价值战略的核心要素

全球开源解决方案的领导者Red Hat(NASDAQ:RHAT)近日在“JBOSS
WORLD”大会上进一步展现了其在开源架构领域的远见,公司宣布计划将虚拟操作系统与全套服务导向型架构(SOA)解决方案相整合,为企业级计算提供一
个更灵活、成本更低的基础平台。Red
Hat相信虚拟化和SOA能够帮助企业实现长期的成本节约,同时提高生产力和业绩,因而企业客户在这两大技术上进行战略性投资是明智的选择。

Red Hat于2002年启动了“企业开源架构”战略。从核心Linux平台起步,Red
Hat始终致力于构建一套涵概硬软件合作伙伴、存储、管理以及安全的完整生态系统。于今年六月收购JBoss后,Red
Hat现在已昂首迈入中间件市场。这将使客户从SOA以及丰富的Internet应用程序中受益。

在柏林“JBoss World”大会期间,Red
Hat介绍了其在JBoss企业中间件套件上所取得的进展,与SOA的整合及协作性有了很大提高。JBoss
ESB是SOA的一个关键组件,它作为企业应用程序、业务服务、业务组件与中间件交互的一个媒介,对实现整合及业务流程自动化起重要作用。此外,公司还预
览了JBoss Application Server
5.0的一些新特性,其性能、安全性和协作性都有所增强。JEMS已经与红帽企业Linux实现了完全整合,这使企业客户可以在自己的环境中更好地发挥开
源技术的价值。

公司负责研发的执行副总裁Paul Cormier表示:“Red
Hat在2006年的核心技术聚焦在虚拟化上。年中的时候,我们开始着手将虚拟化的效率与SOA的灵活性相整合。Red
Hat的目标在于消除对昂贵、封闭平台以及各种捆绑产品的依赖。JBoss凭借其中间件套件继续领跑技术创新。这些新技术与Linux核心平台相整合,我
们的开源技术将为客户带来更多的价值。”

一个多方共赢的合作伙伴架构

旨在构建一个帮助客户快速实现SOA的平台,Red
Hat的开源架构不仅具备了一个优化体系的所有好处,同时,其灵活开放的特性也允许各种补充及同类技术介入其中。拥有该平台,客户既可以一步到位地构建自
己的SOA架构,也可以根据业务需求,循序渐进地部署SOA。除此之外,我们还为合作伙伴和第三方厂商提供了额外的选择,使之可以应用各种兼容解决方案来
构建各自的开源架构。

2007技术导向

Red Hat SOA平台提供一个模块化的架构,让企业根据自己的需要适时地进行投资。企业客户可以从Red
Hat应用套件(Application
Stack)起步,根据需求逐步加入门户、业务流程管理等其它功能。未来,JBoss还打算用其它JEMS产品(比如:JBoss
jBPM业务流程管理和工作流引擎)来进一步拓展JBoss ESB。作为帮助客户快速实现SOA计划的一部分,Red
Hat和JBoss将寻求更多的合作伙伴来把现有解决方案拓展到连接器(connector)、B2B网关、SOA治理(governance)、以及商
业服务等领域。
