serverwatch.com noted that Redhat has now extended the time it will support releases from five years to ten years. This is great news for companies that can’t afford to keep updating internal software at a faster pace. Though the support cycle also means that support versions will have to keep that in mind when releasing software. This combined with advances in virtualization mean that we can keep running software for even longer with out updating it. Wait is that a good thing? Well it’s a mixed blessing but proves again that Linux has supporters that are listening to their customers unlike their counterparts that create the closed source OS’s.

IBM is joining Amazon, Google, HP, Oracle and others in the Cloud space by offering their own solution in conjunction with Red Hat. One of the first unique solution will be a CRM/ERP solution that uses SAP software. This is an interesting collaboration. It’s interesting to see them joining the fray and following up on our previously reported story on the topic.
I heard an interview with the president of ClearOS on Floss Weekly. A short article about it over on LinuxJournal.com reminded us that we needed to talk about it. After hearing the initial interview I decided to setp a VM. The install was easy to do. The Web Based management UI was simple, intuitive and easy to use. Whether you are a Linux Geek or a Newbie it makes managing and configuring new and existing applications easy. If your a small business looking to switch over to Linux we highly recommend putting this on a VM and testing it out.
ZDNet.com has a cool article about the alliance between Red Hat and IBM starting to bring something to the market. It appears that what they have been working on is a packaged appliance like Cloud solution. With Red Hat KVM Based virtualization and IBM Hardware they plan to make devices and sets of servers to compete with the ones being created by Cisco, EMC and VMWare. Competition is cool but can they unseat the VMWare team? Only time will tell.
