Hewlett Packard is to certify, integrate and support database software from MySQL and application server software from JBoss with some of its ProLiant and Integrity ranges.
The move builds on the open source reference architectures that HP released at the beginning of this year, providing blueprints for open source usage.
Martin Fink, vice president of Linux at HP, said the move addressed a different segment of the market from the firm's commercial Linux Reference Architectures.
HP offers two types of Linux Reference Architectures: open source-based offerings, including software from MySQL, JBoss, Apache and OpenLDAP; and packages based on BEA and Oracle software for enterprise customers deploying on Linux.
Bob Bickel, JBoss vice president of corporate development and strategy, said in a statement: "JBoss' relationship with HP gives companies extra assurance that open source technology is safe for the enterprise."
MySQL and JBoss have joined the HP Partner Programme and will receive joint testing and engineering support on HP's servers as well as joint go-to-market offerings and special services for combined install bases.
"Joint customers will also benefit from expert JBoss support, with HP as a single point of accountability," added Bickel.
