Red Hat Wheels Out MRG 2.0

MRG is supposed to be important to Red Hat’s cloud strategy and its month-old OpenShift Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS)

Red Hat Thursday delivered Red Hat Enterprise MRG 2.0, an upgrade of its Messaging, Realtime and Grid widgetry, which is supposed to include advances in performance, scalability and management, and support Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.1.

Red Hat says it delivers high-speed/low latency, open standard application messaging; a deterministic low-latency real-time kernel; and a high-performance computing grid scheduler for distributed workloads and cloud computing.

MRG is supposed to be important to Red Hat's cloud strategy and its month-old OpenShift Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS).

It gives OpenShift a scalable mechanism for transferring data in the cloud, as well as the interoperability of the AMQP open standard.

It supports 10GbE and InfiniBand.
