Red Hat Unveils Directory Server

Red Hat rolls an open-source directory server that's been developed for the company's Linux server and operating systems from Hewlett-Packard Co. and Sun Microsystems Inc.

Red Hat Inc. on Wednesday unveiled an open-source directory server that's been developed for the company's Linux server and operating systems from Hewlett-Packard Co. and Sun Microsystems Inc.

The new product, unveiled at the Red Hat Summit in New Orleans, is built on technology acquired by the Linux distributor from the Netscape Security Solutions division of America Online Inc. in September 2004. The directory is expected to be available under the GNU General Public License for Red Hat Enterprise Linux V.3 and V.4, Sun Solaris and HP-UX 11 operating environments.

Red Hat Directory Server, which is scheduled for availability in the middle of June, will be sold under the same annual subscription model as Enterprise Linux, which includes maintenance, unlimited support incidents and upgrades.

In addition, Red Hat, based in Raleigh, N.C., launched the Fedora Directory Server project, a program to support community-based development of open source director server technologies. The project is based on a similar program for Linux.

In the coming months, Red Hat plans to release to the open-source community additional technologies that were acquired from AOL.
