Red Hat to Keynote at Enterprise Linux Forum

12/4/2002 - Red Hat, Inc. (Nasdaq:RHAT), the world's premier open source and Linux provider, is kicking off the Enterprise Linux Forum with a keynote delivered by Matthew Szulik, Red Hat Chairman and CEO. Szulik will discuss the inevitable shift to open source happening right now in the technology industry and how enterprises are taking advantage of the shift to build their infrastructures around commodity hardware and scalable, cost-effective Linux technology.

Later during the Forum, attendees will be briefed on new Red Hat enterprise roadmap additions and will have the opportunity to attend seminars and panels with top Red Hat executives. Working alongside industry partners, such as BMC, Computer Associates, Dell, Egenera, HP, IBM and Oracle, Red Hat's goal is to educate IT and business managers about how they can deploy Linux in their mission critical IT infrastructure to improve reliability and performance while simultaneously reducing costs.

"Red Hat has played a pivotal role in taking Linux beyond the technology enthusiast and, with products like Advanced Server, making it attractive for commercial computing," said Jonathan Eunice, Principal Analyst and IT Advisor with technology research firm Illuminata, Inc. "We're delighted to have them as the premier sponsor of the Enterprise Linux Forum, where IT managers will discuss how and why Linux and Open Source benefit business infrastructures."

"The Enterprise Linux Forum will serve as a great platform for Red Hat to give customers and prospects a first look at new Linux technologies and solutions that will benefit their businesses," said Mark deVisser, vice president of Marketing at Red Hat. "With support from our partners, Red Hat is able to deliver advanced technologies that are truly scalable and offer cost effective alternatives to proprietary solutions."

Scheduled speakers at the Forum include Steven Salazzo, General Manager of Linux, IBM and Rene Bonvanie, Vice President of Oracle Marketing, Oracle Corporation.
