Open-source stalwart Red Hat has announced an expanded partnership with Fujitsu to extend their collaboration to the cloud. These two have been partners for a long time, so it really shouldn't come as a shock that Red Hat Enterprise Linux is now available as a guest operating system on Fujitsu's "On-Demand Virtual System Service" public cloud.
"With the performance and reliability of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, customers can more easily scale with business needs in the cloud," said Scott Crenshaw , vice president and general manager, Cloud Business Unit at Red Hat. "The availability of Red Hat Enterprise Linux on Fujitsu's 'On-Demand Virtual System Service' offers enterprises a strong foundation on which to extend to the cloud that combines the unique expertise of two industry leaders."
It's a win-win situation for both companies, and for customers as well. This collaboration gives Fujitsu another open-source OS to offer its customers, and a powerful one at that, with enterprise-class support from Fujitsu and backed by Red Hat.
