12/03/2012 | 02:05pm EDT

Expansion of Red Hat's Distribution Strategy Reinforces Channel Commitment while Providing OEMs and ISVs with Access to Red Hat Embedded Linux and Red Hat JBoss Middleware Solutions

Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced that it is expanding the reach of its embedded software program through a new partnership with Avnet Embedded, a business group of Avnet Electronics Marketing, an operating group of Avnet, Inc., (NYSE: AVT). Avnet Embedded will offer flexible, integrated systems based on Red Hat Embedded Linux and Red Hat JBoss Middleware solutions to its large base of OEM and independent software vendor (ISV) partners throughout the Americas.

As a Red Hat distributor in the Americas, Avnet Embedded plans to become a one-stop shop for customers, offering software, hardware, integration, and value-added support services. The Red Hat offering for embedded products will include:

  • Red Hat Embedded Linux
  • Red Hat JBoss Middleware solutions
  • Red Hat Developer Support
  • JBoss Developer Support

Avnet Electronics Marketing is an operating group of Phoenix-based Avnet, Inc. that serves electronic original equipment manufacturers (EOEMs) and electronic manufacturing services (EMS) providers in more than 70 countries, distributing electronic components from leading manufacturers and providing associated design-chain and supply-chain services.

"Red Hat has expanded outside the traditional data center, given the proliferation of intelligent connected devices and the affinity of embedded engineers towards open source," said Dion Cornett, vice president, Strategic Alliances, Red Hat. "Red Hat's embedded business presents partners with strategic growth opportunities. This Americas distribution agreement with Avnet is the latest example of Red Hat's channel-centric strategy for offering OEMs the flexibility, speed-to-market and enterprise functionality they need to drive their revenues and profits. We're looking forward to working with Avnet Embedded to drive new opportunities and to bring the many benefits of Red Hat's open source solutions to the embedded OEM marketplace."

"Red Hat is a recognized leader in open source enterprise software and embedded Linux. The addition of Red Hat to Avnet's embedded software and service portfolio substantially enhances our value proposition for providing comprehensive support across our customers' entire solution stack," said Chuck Kostalnick, senior vice president, Avnet Embedded. "We are very pleased to have the opportunity to represent Red Hat's exceptional product line to the OEM market. Together, Avnet Embedded and Red Hat can enable OEM customers with the necessary code and corresponding software services to imagine, develop and complete their next embedded design more quickly, efficiently and cost effectively."
