Red Hat Inc. is the world's leading provider of open source solutions. Infor ION and Infor LN are now certified on Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating platform and JBoss Enterprise Middleware solutions. Certifying Infor applications on Red Hat's open source platforms gives customers access to a broad base of innovation without lock-in and provides deployment choices for Infor solutions coupled with opportunities to lower costs significantly.
Additionally, both Infor LN and ION can now leverage MySQL and MariaDB, further reducing the total cost of ownership of Infor LN and ION for cloud service providers and customers with mandates for use of open source within their IT infrastructures.
"By collaborating with Red Hat, we are working with the industry leader to give our customers the choice to standardize on open standards while providing world-class applications that deliver proven value without compromising performance or functionality," said Ali Shadman, SVP, Business Cloud, Infor.
By making its applications available on Red Hat open source stack, Infor enables customers to run applications on a flexible, open source platform for hybrid infrastructures that cross physical, virtual, and public cloud resources. Since Infor products support cloud and on-premise infrastructures using the same code base to provide identical functionality, collaborating with Red Hat is another way it helps customers lower the cost of deployment with scalability, performance, and reliability. Additionally, Infor ION technology enables customers to run an entire open source suite with out-of-the-box integration.
"Red Hat and Infor raise the bar in enterprise technology innovation, and we're doing it again by offering an enterprise-class ERP leveraging an open stack," said Craig Muzilla, vice president and general manager, Middleware, Red Hat.
