Red Hat, the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, has announced the appointment of Linux System Dynamics (LSD) as the first Red Hat Advanced Business Partner with middleware specialisation in southern Africa.

The accreditation, which reflects a long standing relationship with Red Hat, will allow Linux System Dynamics to directly address the increased demand for complex, high-end open source middleware solutions in the southern African region.
Linux System Dynamics has more than eight years of experience in open source solutions and specialises in providing enterprise computing solutions for infrastructure, applications, systems integration and IT governance.
Red Hat Advanced Business Partners with middleware specialisation have Red Hat certified expertise, a track record of successful JBoss projects and demonstrate extensive knowledge of Red Hat solutions.

“We are able to offer a full range of consulting, implementation and training services to companies aiming to build their infrastructure on open source solutions.”
Linux System Dynamics has developed a strong portfolio of Red Hat skills and services over the past few years.
