Oracle and Red Hat have announced significant development in their longstanding partnership with the launch of the Oracle-Red Hat Linux Enterprise Applications Porting (LEAP) Center in Singapore. Established to grow the ecosystem of Independent Software Vendors (ISV) and System Integrators (SI) in Asia Pacific that deliver solutions on Linux, the LEAP Center is the first joint Oracle-Red Hat Linux solution center in the world. Oracle and Red Hat have jointly committed an estimated USD $13 million/SGD $20 million in software, training and resource to date. Designed as a regional hub for the software industry to harness the potential of enterprise Linux, the Oracle-Red Hat LEAP Center will assist ISV and SI in porting, optimizing and certifying their solutions on Linux. By improving partners' skills on Linux and providing access to the low-cost, secure, and reliable Oracle infrastructure running on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux platform, the LEAP Center will increase the availability of third-party Linux applications for the enterprise, while accelerating adoption of enterprise Linux solutions in Asia Pacific.
