RedHat acquires JBoss

  • 11-Apr-2006

Ending months of speculation, Linux distributor RedHat will acquire the open source Java company JBoss. As Enterprise Portal Report readers know, JBoss Portal runs on almost any operating system, but only with the JBoss application server. With JBoss Portal potentially bundled with Red Hat in the future, many customers will ask if JBoss will suffice for their portal use-cases, instead of an additional investment in another product such as IBM WebSphere Portal. However, our research found JBoss Portal coming up a bit short in functionality. As a side note: JBoss executive Mark Fleury had previously ridiculed Red Hat in an intemperate blog entry, but apparently this was nicely cleaned up before the acquisition.

Our customers say...

"The Real Story Group put their trademark stamp of insight, depth of understanding, candor and overall industry smarts in The Digital & Media Asset Management Research. For anyone working to develop an understanding of what digital asset management is, or what lessons can be distilled from dozens of first- and second-generation implementations, or read a perceptive, engaging recap of the vendor landscape, this is an outstanding resource. With a level of readability that makes accessible, at-your-fingertips, and ready-to-use content, this research is a long-awaited contribution to the field of digital asset management."
