Red Hat Loosens Enterprise Linux Restrictions

Enterprise Linux customers with premium support get an open gateway to use on Amazon's EC2.

In a bid to simplify cloud computing for its large customers, Red Hat has announced that subscribers to Red Hat Enterprise Linux with premium support may move their instances between on-premises and in-the-cloud without modifying their license agreements.

This will facilitate keeping Enterprise Linux, whether in the cloud or on-premises, in synch, by patching and updating the two at the same time.

Both measures are aimed at making it easier for enterprises already using a substantial number of Linux servers to gain access to public cloud data centers, such as Amazon Web Services' EC2, without renegotiating their Red Hat subscriptions or being confronted with a pricing scheme that differs from what they're already using.

The Cloud Access features of Red Hat Linux with Premium support reflect a growing tacit alliance between leading cloud provider Amazon and Red Hat as Microsoft's Azure cloud starts to gain some traction. Microsoft is expected to rapidly build out integrated features between its on-premises technologies and those in the Azure cloud.
