The "Red Hat Ready" Independent Software Vendor (ISV) application program allows vendors to test and qualify their software applications on Red Hat Enterprise Linux. It is a key step in supporting Red Hat Enterprise Linux as a standard platform for enterprise computing. Customers who choose to deploy Red Hat Ready applications have the assurance that Arkeia software has completed rigorous testing on the latest versions of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and that Arkeia is compliant with Red Hat's stringent guidelines for interoperability.

Arkeia continues to maintain its position as the first professional network backup solution fully capable of protecting Linux environments of virtually all configurations. It offers the widest coverage in terms of architecture, including x86, Itanium-2, AMD Opteron, PowerPC, SPARC, Alpha, and appliances such as Sun Cobalt and SGI Altix servers. Arkeia supports a broad range of other operating systems, including Windows, Unix, Mac OS X, NetWare and xBSD.

"Red Hat Enterprise Linux has become a standard enterprise computing platform for Arkeia's customers," said Frederic Renard, director of marketing and alliances for Arkeia. "Our alignment with Red Hat through the Red Hat Ready program has been a collaborative, cost-effective method for getting our Linux applications to market as rapidly as possible."
