Posted on Wednesday, Jun 01 2005 @ 21:48 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Later this month Red Hat will launch a directory server, which is designed to mange system user names and access policies. It is one of the programs that Red Had acquired from Time Warner last year.
With the release, Red Hat is expanding its product set, giving the company more ammunition against proprietary technology from rivals Microsoft, Novell and Sun. The expansion strategy is aimed at bringing more businesses and government agencies into the open-source fold and allowing Red Hat to charge a greater premium for its Linux systems and related services, the company has said.
The Red Hat Directory Server was previously named Netscape Directory Server and will now feature compatibility with the Red Hat Enterprise Linux OS. The company said its directory server will also work in HP and SUN operating environments. More info at CNET
