Liferay’s annual West Coast Symposium is being held next week on September 8-9, 2010. One of the anticipated events is the debut of Liferay Portal 6EE, which will be broadcasted live for those who can’t attend the conference.
As part of the Liferay 6 launch activities, Liferay will also showcase a new feature in Liferay 6 each day starting on 8/31. Liferay is also hosting a series of worldwide roadshows with their partners to further drive product awareness.
Rivet Logic will be participating as a sponsor at the West Coast Symposium and hosting the Reston, VA roadshow at our facilities on September 24th.
Alfresco just selected Rivet Logic as the winner of their Americas Partner of the Quarter Award.
Alfresco Partner of the Quarter, Q2 2009 – Rivet Logic
We’re truly honored to be recognized again by Alfresco for our accomplishments. Over the past year, we’ve continued to see strong demand for our Alfresco consulting services as more and more organizations are becoming more liberal towards the idea of open source. Last quarter, we kicked off several new Alfresco projects in a variety of sectors – including higher ed, media/publishing, technology and non-profit.
We look forward to continuing our work with major enterprises, and contributing back to the Alfresco community.
Last week, Red Hat launched their third annual Innovation Awards, which will be presented at the 2009 Red Hat Summit and JBoss World held in Chicago later this year in September.
“The Innovation Awards were created to honor individuals and companies who have forged new ground to demonstrate innovative solutions through the use of Red Hat and JBoss products and technologies.”
There are a total of six categories, including Management Excellence, Optimized Solutions, Superior Alternatives, Extensive Ecosystem, Carved out Costs, and Outstanding Open Source Architecture.
“Five categories will each recognize two winning submissions, one from Red Hat and one from JBoss, and the Outstanding Open Source Architecture category will recognize one winner who is deploying both Red Hat and JBoss solutions. From these category winners, a Red Hat Innovator of the Year and a JBoss Innovator of the Year will be selected by the community through online voting and announced at the awards ceremony.”
In this down economy, enterprises everywhere are looking for new opportunities to cut costs. Why use expensive, proprietary ECM applications and infrastructure when commercial open source alternatives offers dramatically reduced costs, mitigate risk, without compromising on performance availability and supportability?
Join us as Rivet Logic and Ingres Corporation co-host a webcast this Wednesday, March 4th, to see how transitioning to an open source infrastructure with products like Alfresco, Red Hat, and Ingres could benefit your organization as we draw on real-world examples.
Red Hat and Microsoft?? Working together??? Yes, you heard correctly. The two leading and competing providers of operating environments deployed by enterprises are coming together due to customer demand.
Red Hat announced recently that it has “signed reciprocal agreements with Microsoft Corporation to enable increased interoperability for the companies’ virtualization platforms”.
“Each company will join the other’s virtualization validation/certification program and will provide coordinated technical support for their mutual server virtualization customers. The reciprocal validations will allow customers to deploy heterogeneous, virtualized Red Hat and Microsoft solutions with confidence.”
“The key components of the reciprocal agreements are:
Red Hat will validate Windows Server guests to be supported on Red Hat Enterprise virtualization technologies.
Microsoft will validate Red Hat Enterprise Linux server guests to be supported on Windows Server Hyper-V and Microsoft Hyper-V Server.
Once each company completes testing, customers with valid support agreements will receive coordinated technical support for running Windows Server operating system virtualized on Red Hat Enterprise virtualization, and for running Red Hat Enterprise Linux virtualized on Windows Server Hyper-V and Microsoft Hyper-V Server.”
