Anonymous Reader writes "Oracle (Quote, Chart) and Red Hat (Quote, Chart) are extending their Linux partnership into Asia with a new $13 million dollar initiative in Singapore, the two companies said on Wednesday.

The first joint Oracle/Red Hat Linux Enterprise Applications Porting (LEAP) Center is designed to be a hub for the region to help assist Independent Software Vendors (ISV) and systems integrators with migrating, certifying, optimizing and ultimately delivering Linux solutions.

"Demand for open source and Linux in APAC has grown significantly," Red Hat spokesperson Leigh Day told internetnews.com. "Red Hat and Oracle are strategically aligned to expand the adoption of Linux and Oracle solutions running on Linux internationally. This is another milestone in the relationship we've had with Oracle for years."
