Red Hat Collaborating With SAIC On Cloud

Red Hat is collaborating with Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) to demonstrate solutions on the use of open source cloud computing technologies.

A number of Red Hat solutions, including Red Hat Enterprise Linux, JBoss Enterprise Middleware, Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization, systems management technologies, Red Hat CloudForms, and the company’s OpenShift Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) cloud computing platform, will be deployed in SAIC’s new Advanced Computer Engineering (ACE) Laboratory located in North Charleston, S.C., adjacent to SAIC and Red Hat customers.

SAIC’s ACE Laboratory will serve as the foundation for an open community, providing an environment to foster public and private cooperation focused on solving complex operational and computational problems. The laboratory provides physical and virtual environments for hands-on collaboration between SAIC, other contractors, small businesses, information technology vendors and government employees.

ACE Laboratory collaborators will learn how Red Hat’s modular and open technology portfolio can be integrated into their cloud architecture.

Paul Smith (Vice president, general manager, Public Sector, Red Hat): Red Hat has a longstanding relationship with SAIC to provide open source technologies and methodologies on large programs in the federal government, dating back to our first master marketing agreement in 2006.
