Innovation needs collaboration
Start with an idea. Bring in as many people as you can. And build on it together until it grows into something useful.
This doesn’t just describe our approach to enterprise software, it gets to the heart of our belief system.
We believe great ideas are the way forward. And the next one is just a contribution away.
That’s why our code is open.
Connect your clouds
Clouds that compete can still connect
Our products allow systems, applications, and data to work together across physical infrastructure, private clouds, and public clouds. Let’s say a company is using a Microsoft Azure cloud and wants to add an AWS cloud and manage them in 1 place. Or what if a company no longer wants to use their existing provider, and instead, wants to explore the benefits of a different cloud, without rewriting their apps? They can. Because our code is open.
Start with Linux
Every cloud has a Linux lining
Instant scale, ease of use, and flexibility piqued enterprise IT's interest in cloud computing. But any technology needs a level of stability before large organizations will adopt it at scale. For cloud, Linux® is providing that stability. In 9 of the 10 most popular public clouds, Linux is the sturdy, reliable core, providing many of the same capabilities that make it popular for on-premise enterprise workloads. And Red Hat is the leader―Red Hat® Enterprise Linux is the #1 commercial Linux distribution.
Go big with Kubernetes
Kubernetes and containers make hybrid cloud possible
Kubernetes is the open source technology of the future―a Linux for a new era of enterprise IT. As the second-leading Kubernetes contributor1, and the driving force in bringing Linux to the enterprise, Red Hat has the record and the platforms to reliably deploy containers across hybrid cloud environments. Clouds that compete can also connect in part because of our Kubernetes platform for managing containers, Red Hat OpenShift®.
Push boundaries with an open cloud
AI that saves time can also help radiologists save lives
ChRIS Research Integration Service is an open source image processing platform that uses the software and compute infrastructure of an open cloud. Because the project is open source, people from around the globe can contribute. And because Red Hat’s code is open, the team can more easily build, deploy, and scale applications for imaging, analytics, and diagnostics on an agile cloud infrastructure.
Map solutions with DevOps
Software that powers global enterprises can also map the future of disaster relief
A team from UNICEF Innovation had an ambitious goal. They wanted to use open source platform, Magicbox, to improve emergency preparedness for children around the globe. The team embarked on an 8-week Red Hat Open Innovation Labs residency and used open technologies and open methodologies, like DevOps, to quickly address global crisis and risk prevention.
Tap into the community
Our development model: the heart of the code
The Red Hat development model begins where true innovation lies—open source communities. Red Hat is a proud contributor to all aspects of the software stack, from the operating system and developer toolchain to middleware and cloud. We build upon each project to harden security, fix bugs, patch vulnerabilities, and add new features. This way, organizations everywhere can benefit from solutions that are both innovative and enterprise-ready.
