We launched the Red Hat SOA Strategy in November 2006 and redefined SOA to be Simple, Open, and Affordable. So how does Red Hat make SOA simple, open and affordable?
Simple: Red Hat provides simple-to-procure and -consume open source engines, frameworks, stacks, and component architecture that allows developers, ISVs and enterprises to create solutions that realize the benefits of Service Oriented Architecture.
Open: Open Source is more malleable and flexible, and the licensing model offers more value and freedom. Red Hat also delivers standard-based products further supporting its open focus and enabling greater flexibility. Flexibility, freedom, and value are keys to increased IT and business agility.
Affordable: Red Hat and JBoss Subscriptions enable enterprise SOA deployments to realize greater value by eliminating expensive license fees and delivering high quality developer assist, production support, superior deployment experience and superior customer satisfaction.
