    PR: HP and Red Hat Expand Relationship to Deliver Linux Solutions to Enterprise Customers
    Thursday June 27 2002 @ 10:30AM EDT

    HP (NYSE:HPQ) and Red Hat (Nasdaq:RHAT) today announced an expansion of their relationship with the availability of Red Hat Linux Advanced Server on HP servers and workstations for enterprise customers. This availability includes new systems based on the forthcoming IntelĀ® ItaniumĀ® 2 processor, making HP the first company to offer Red Hat Linux Advanced Server fully integrated on Itanium 2-based platforms.

    As part of the expanded relationship, all HP ProLiant servers, blade servers and Itanium 2-based servers and workstations will be available with certified Red Hat Linux Advanced Server, delivering outstanding price to performance ratios to enterprise customers. HP co-developed the Itanium instruction set architecture and expects to be the first vendor to offer Linux-based servers and workstations based on the Itanium 2 processor. HP and Red Hat will continue collaborating on the research, development and marketing of future Linux solutions.

    These new systems will leverage the enterprise functionality of Red Hat Linux advanced technologies and the scalability and performance of the Intel Itanium processor family, which are important considerations for independent software vendors looking to bring their applications to industry-standard platforms.

    "It's clear that Linux is gaining ground with commercial applications, and HP is working with Red Hat because of its market leadership among Linux distributions, " said Peter Blackmore, executive vice president, HP Enterprise Systems Group. "Our expanded relationship with Red Hat will significantly broaden the scope of our Linux offerings, providing customers with an even greater opportunity to take advantage of the low cost, reliability and scalability provided by Linux."

    "The market acceptance of Red Hat Linux Advanced Server now brings world-class solutions to the enterprise," said Mike Evans, vice president, Business Development, Red Hat. "This announcement solidifies our already-existing relationship with the new HP and represents further validation of Red Hat's enterprise technologies, the first of which is Red Hat Linux Advanced Server."

    Enterprise Adoption of Linux Accelerating

    "The Linux industry continues to expand, with most of the unit growth in 2001 coming from Linux client and workstation operating system shipments," said Al Gillen, research director, system software, IDC. "IDC's expectation for Linux server operating environment new license revenue shipments remains strong, with forecasts calling for a 19.7 percent compound annual growth rate through 2006."

    According to Q1 2002 numbers from IDC, HP ProLiant servers continue to lead the market in Linux Standard Intel Architecture Server unit shipments with 25.9 percent market share. The Q1 results mark the 17th straight quarter in which ProLiant servers have led the industry in worldwide Linux server unit shipments.(1)

    World-class enterprises, including market leaders Reuters and Amazon, have turned to Red Hat Linux running on HP servers.

    "Our customers see Reuters Market Data Systems on HP ProLiant servers running Red Hat Linux as an important way to reduce their costs of operation and improve their service, so it was quite natural that we should bring the two together. The support Linux enjoys from a broad range of hardware vendors also makes it an excellent fit with Reuters' policy of open systems," said Mike Sayers, chief technology officer, Reuters. "We are pleased to bring the Linux version of RMDS to market first on the HP, Intel and Red Hat platform.

    "Working with these industry leaders will ensure that RMDS on Red Hat Linux provides the stability, performance and integrity that our customers have come to expect from us."
