HP’s Advanced Telecommunications Computing Architecture (AdvancedTCA) bh5700 blade server has received pre-launch endorsement from Red Hat.
Red Hat intends to certify its Enterprise Linux on the new server, which will be unveiled this week at the 3GSM World Congress in Barcelona. Furthermore Red Hat Enterprise Linux is designated as the blade server’s preferred operating system.
AdvancedTCA is a next-generation telecommunications architecture designed to meet the high availability, quality of service and performance requirements of carriers and service providers.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux was selected as the preferred operating system for the HP AdvancedTCA blade server based on its ability to meet the strict performance, reliability and security requirements demanded by service providers and carriers.
"HP needed a carrier-quality and 'ready-to-run' operating system proven to address the demand for highly available, dependable and reliable communications platforms," says Paul Cormier, executive vice-president of engineering at Red Hat.
"We're pleased to be working with our long-time partner HP on the initiative and look forward to our continued collaboration in support of our shared customers."
"Red Hat Enterprise Linux was the right choice for our new AdvancedTCA blade server based on its performance, scalability, reliability and success in both wired and wireless telecommunications markets," says Christina Martino, vice-president, Open Source and Linux Organisation at HP.
