Vitria to Provide JBoss with Open SOA

Pierre Fricke will deilver a session at the upcoming SOA World Conference & Expo

Vitria Technology and Red Hat announced a collaboration to accelerate service-oriented architecture (SOA) solutions to the marketplace. Vitria will offer Red Hat's open source JBoss Enterprise Application Platform with Business Accelerator, its newly launched open SOA integration suite. Both companies will provide service and support.

Business Accelerator aligns today's business need for speed with IT's need to implement the "right" technology. It offers freedom of choice and flexibility to build a best-of-breed solution by leveraging Vitria's proven expertise in business process integration software, technology capabilities provided by industry-leading partners, as well as the customer's existing infrastructure. JBoss Enterprise Application Platform, launched today by Red Hat, is an integrated, tested, and certified offering combining JBoss Application Server, Hibernate, and JBoss Seam into a single distribution for deploying and hosting applications and web services.

"We give customers the freedom to choose individual SOA components to create the best solution for their particular needs," commented Dale Skeen, Chief Executive Officer of Vitria. "The new Vitria products are designed to co-exist in a heterogeneous environment so customers can leverage their existing infrastructure investments. The addition of JBoss to our community of complementary solutions enables us to ensure that customers have the ability to choose the best of breed when they choose our products."

"Vitria has a long history of enabling enterprises to leverage the Internet for agile business and transformation, so we're pleased that the next generation of their business process integration solution will leverage our JBoss Enterprise Application Platform," said Pierre Fricke, director of product line management, SOA Products, Red Hat. "We look forward to working closely with Vitria to bring Business Accelerator to market and deliver an exceptional customer experience."
