The Assessment and Qualifications Alliance (AQA) is the largest of the three English exam boards. The AQA wanted to launch an extranet service that would be available to its external users of more than 35,000 examiners and moderators. For this the AQA chose Red Hat. The solution AQA has chosen is based on an open source stack comprising Red Hat Enterprise Linux, JBoss Enterprise Application Platform, JBoss Enterprise Portal Platform, Alfresco and Enterprise DB, and will provide a strategic platform for future collaboration.
