Red Hat adds to JBoss line with MetaMatrix

Open source vendor Red Hat is bolstering its middleware line-up with the capture of data services technology developer MetaMatrix, the firm said last week.

MetaMatrix develops software that adapts data from current enterprise systems for use in modern, service-oriented architecture (SOA) infrastructures.

Red Hat plans to integrate MetaMatrix's technology into its JBoss middleware line. The open source vendor bought JBoss last year for US$350million.

Products from MetaMatrix will soon be moved to a subscription-licensing model and be released as open source offerings within the next year, according to Red Hat executives.

Though all of JBoss' technology will remain open source material available for mix-and-match use, the company will begin offering integrated, tested and certified JBoss Enterprise Platform bundles for customers that prefer one-stop shopping.

The first offering, the JBoss Enterprise Application Platform, includes the JBoss Application Server, Hibernate and Seam. Future enterprise bundles are in the works for portal applications, SOA integration and business process automation.

The value of the deal, which is set to close in two months, was undisclosed.
