Red Hat's plans for JBoss.
"Whatever else you can say about new Red Hat CEO Jim Whitehurst, you can't say he thinks small.
At the JBoss World 2008 tradeshow Feb. 13 in Orlando, Fla., Whitehurst said Red Hat plans not only for JBoss Enterprise Middleware to take 50 percent of the enterprise middleware market by 2015, but for JBoss' revenue to grow twice as fast as Red Hat's flagship Linux operating system during the next three years.
During Red Hat's second fiscal quarter 2007, which ended Aug. 31, then-CEO Matthew Szulik said that the "rate of JBoss bookings and revenue to date has not met our expectations. The company expected it to grow at twice the rate its core RHEL [Red Hat Enterprise Linux] business has, but so far, it's about the same. We know we can do much better."
