Our brand in action

Community. Collaboration. Transparency.

Open source is the best way to develop software. At one time, that was an extreme idea. Now, it’s an accepted truth. We’ve always believed it, so we apply open source principles to everything we do.

The power of people

Open source everywhere

We work to make sure open source ideas influence and improve the collaborative good works of others, in every walk of life. Wherever people pull together to solve a shared problem, Red Hat wants to lend a hand.
