Clarify your cloud vision

cloud competitors illustration

Put open source flexibility to work for hybrid cloud. This approach empowers IT to bridge diverse environments and use each one to its fullest―without binding future resources. It enables you to respond to shifts in demand, industry changes, or your own IT priorities.

Explore more below.


Edge complements the hybrid cloud

Edge computing starts with flexible open source software

Edge computing provides a consistent experience for app developers, infrastructure ops teams, and everyone in between. And when paired with open source solutions, edge technologies work across a wide ecosystem so that companies can choose the right solution for any situation. See why edge is an integral part of Red Hat’s open hybrid cloud strategy.

Manage complexity through automation

Make the most of open source with automation

Workloads are spread across different cloud deployments and infrastructures, creating unconnected, ad-hoc tools that overburden teams and make keeping up with security and compliance a challenge too. Whether spanning hybrid or multicloud, your deployments should work in harmony. Red Hat’s automation tools bring collaborative cohesion to cloud complexity.

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.

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.

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.

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.
