DUBAI, UAE, 6th MARCH, 2016 -- Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world's leading provider of open source solutions, and Eurotech, (ETH:IM)
a leading provider of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) platforms and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, today announced a collaboration 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.

Eurotech and Red Hat technologies will strive to solve the problems of scalability, performance latency, reliability, and security inherent to complex IoT implementations. Based on pushing computing power to the network edge, the combined solution will help to 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.

Forming the foundation of this new architecture are the world’s leading enterprise Linux platform, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and market-leading Eurotech M2M/IoT software. 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.

Through this collaboration, both companies are able to leverage their experiences in supporting IoT deployments numbering in the hundreds of thousands of devices. By choosing enterprise-ready open source software from Red Hat, Eurotech seeks to offer their customers a solution that they can deploy with greater ease while extending and adapting as technology and market opportunities evolve. Together, Red Hat and Eurotech are able to provide enabling technologies that can link operational systems to the enterprise, helping to simplify integration with IT applications and systems.
