Red Hat Support

Supporting you the Red Hat way

Together, we can do more. This is a pillar of the open source community. And it is how Red Hat approaches support.

The support you need, every step of the way

  • Available 24x7 access to trusted technical expertise, knowledge, and resources are available in our Customer Portal, as well as the option to collaborate with one of our specialty teams to resolve your issue over the phone or by chat. We take the lead on multi-vendor issues, and we have a variety of support models to meet your needs.

  • Proactive Technical articles, solutions, videos, and more are published in the Red Hat® Customer Portal so you can find, comment, and rate the content that matters to you. Oftentimes, this leads to an answer to your problem before you even ask the question.

  • Secure Customers and partners get our security alerts, bug fixes, CVE database, and help from Red Hat Product Security to identify and address security vulnerabilities. Our security blog provides the latest information, alerts, and monitoring, or learn how to contact our security team.
