Red Hat Network to be open-sourced
- 19 June, 2008 07:39
Red Hat plans to announce Thursday that it is open-sourcing Red Hat Network (RHN), its Web-based Linux infrastructure management platform, according to CEO Jim Whitehurst.
"We think it will develop more quickly, and we'll have an instant community of use," Whitehurst said in an interview on Wednesday at the Red Hat Summit conference in Boston. "We'll find bugs we didn't know about and features will get added. We believe it's a superior model for developing software."
The move is important for keeping up the company's image, he suggested.
"I think strategic clarity is important. We are open source, and everything we do is open source."
Further details were not available Wednesday, but Red Hat is expected to reveal more during a press conference on Thursday.
