Red Hat offers open-source consulting

Eager to outgrow its Linux-only stereotype, Red Hat Inc. has introduced three new services as part of its open-source consulting arm launch.

The suite of services is designed to usher enterprises toward migration of their infrastructure to Linux and a host of other versatile open-source solutions, said Sushma Rajagopalan, vice-president of global professional consulting for Research Triangle Park, N.C.-based Red Hat. Rajagoplan said the idea behind Red Hat’s open-source consulting practice is to provide services and consultation to supplement open-source products, training, solutions, and end-to-end capability requirements. The new services feature a Linux migration and integration service that tackles the task of moving a Unix platform and its applications to Linux.
