Red Hat has launched Red Hat Exchange (RHX), a site that customers can use to buy open source applications from the company's business partners.

The exchange was announced in March, when Red Hat launched Enterprise Linux 5, the latest version of its operating system. RHX was formally launched last week at Red Hat's customer conference in San Diego, US.

The site will sell software products that have been built on Red Hat's Linux OS and JBoss server software; in total 14 partners' products will be available on RHX. Red Hat will share revenues with its business partners, and will provide customer support, acting as the single point of contact for customers.

"The goal of our Open Source Architecture strategy is to offer customers flexibility and choice. RHX supports this goal and redefines the traditional business software experience by making it simple to evaluate, test, deploy and manage complete open source solutions," said Donald Fischer, vice president of online services at Red Hat. "The assembled partner solutions are some of the most innovative in the industry and share the same value system as Red Hat when it comes to delivering an excellent customer experience at a great value."
