RALEIGH, N.C: A Leading provider of open source solutions and a leading provider of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) platforms and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, Red Hat, Inc. and Eurotech respectively, join hands to simplify IoT integration and accelerate implementations of IoT projects.

Red Hat and Eurotech have combined their complementary technologies with the intention of building an end-to-end architecture for IoT that will seek to bridge the gap between operational and information technology.

 Problems of scalability, performance latency, reliability, and security inherent to complex IoT implementations, these are a few problems that the two companies have targeted to solve. To help remove the need to ship masses of data to the cloud for real-time processing by enabling essential data aggregation, data transformation, integration, and routing to occur close to the operational devices, triggering business rules that automate machine processes.

The world’s leading enterprise Linux platform, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and market-leading Eurotech M2M/IoT software form the foundation of this new architecture. Combining Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat JBoss Middleware along with Eurotech Everyware Software Framework and Eurotech Everyware Cloud will help to drive enhanced computing security, manageability, and application support for IoT solutions, providing connectivity to the device tier as well as the datacenter and cloud tier. 

Combined, Red Hat and Eurotech products and expertise can deliver powerful data, device and embedded application management services to customers that need to integrate their assets in the field more efficiently with the world of enterprise IT and mobile applications.

Jim Totton, vice president and general manager, Platforms Business Unit, Red Hat, was recorded as saying “Working with partners such as Eurotech that truly understand the unique challenges and opportunities presented by industrial IoT has helped to confirm the value that mission critical IT solutions and open source innovation brings to large-scale IoT deployments.

 Totton also believes that by collaborating with Eurotech and building the next-generation of IoT architecture on Red Hat solutions while embracing open standards,  it has become possible to better address the enterprise requirements around reliability, stability, and security, critical questions that must be answered to foster greater adoption of IoT across the enterprise.

“Good collaborations build on a common understanding of success factors, technology and an aligned vision,” added Robert Andres, CMO, Eurotech.
