Red Hat, Inc., the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced the launch of Red Hat Partner Subscriptions, a no-cost subscription model that allows partners deeper access to the Red Hat open hybrid cloud portfolio. Red Hat Partner Subscriptions offer a simplified path for partners to acquire Red Hat product subscriptions that can be used to develop software solutions and proof-of-concepts, test product offerings, deepen technical skills and more.
By introducing new and improved Red Hat Partner Subscriptions, partners will have more visibility than ever before into the Red Hat open hybrid cloud portfolio to fuel real business outcomes and success with customers.
Red Hat Partner Subscriptions equip partners with Red Hat subscriptions typically worth thousands of dollars to develop and sell solutions based on hardened, enterprise-grade open source software, driving improved operational efficiencies and technical capabilities for customers. Replacing traditional Not-for-Resale subscriptions, Red Hat Partner Subscriptions offer partners more comprehensive access to Red Hat’s industry leading platforms, including Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Red Hat OpenShift and Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform, as well as supported offerings, for a broader range of business and technical use cases.
Key benefits for partners through Red Hat Partner Subscriptions include:
- Access to hundreds of self-support subscriptions for the Red Hat open hybrid cloud portfolio, with the ability for partners to mix and match product subscriptions.
- Extended use for single- and multi-user software development, testing, internal training, demonstrations, proofs-of-concept and more.
- Enabled use for on-premises or in any public cloud.
- Complimentary Red Hat Standard support for up to five contacts, with the option to upgrade for additional contacts or Red Hat Premium support.
- Applicable for all generally available Red Hat product versions, variants, package updates and add-ons, as well as public Beta versions.
Red Hat Partner Subscriptions are now available to all Red Hat Ready, Advanced and Premier Business Partners. In addition, Red Hat technology partners that have completed or are in the process of completing product certifications with Red Hat can also utilize Red Hat Partner Subscriptions.
Eligible Red Hat partners are invited to attend a webinar to learn more about Red Hat Partner Subscriptions at 11 a.m. EST on February 28, 2023. More details are also available on the Red Hat Partner Connect blog.
