Unisys and JBoss Thursday announced they were expanding their relationship. Unisys is now became a JBoss Authorized Service Provider (JASP) and JBoss Authorized Training Partner (JATP) for all of the JBoss Enterprise Middleware Suite (JEMS) on a global level. Under the terms of the agreement, Unisys can deliver a broad range of support services, consulting services and public training for clients developing JEMS-based multi-channel, multi-portal applications.
JEMS products include JBoss Application Server, Hibernate, and Apache Tomcat.
Unisys and JBoss will also expand their collaboration on education, marketing, and sales opportunities, and Unisys will increase its presence on JBoss' OEM/ISV Customer Advisory Board, an organization designed to help JBoss understand and act on the priorities of application architects, developers and systems integrators, and enterprise end users.
Unisys has already tested and tuned the JBoss Application Server for its hardware, completing both performance and scalability testing in conjunction with JBoss.
The OEM has also built a global team of JBoss certified consultants to migrate, implement, and optimize JEMS within the enterprise, and it has established JBoss Centers of Excellence globally to enable customers to benchmark and test business-critical applications in a lab environment before moving them into production.
