1. Benefit from a curated partner ecosystem 

Red Hat has developed robust partnerships with industry leading software partners to provide you with access to a rich open source ecosystem for hybrid cloud technologies. 

  • We make it easy for you to find the best partners for the right workloads by grouping offerings by focus, such as artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML), application development (app dev), data, DevSecOps, and infrastructure.
  • Knowing that Red Hat has carefully selected and vetted the software partners in its ecosystem provides you with confidence for selecting, deploying, and using the workloads you need from the partners you choose. 
  • Simplify decisions and make more efficient use of infrastructure to accelerate your digital transformation.

2. Find software built to solve your business challenges 

The partnership between Red Hat and its software ecosystem extends beyond a contract. Together, we participate in collaborative and innovative development that addresses business challenges and pain points with software that is not only compatible with, but written for and optimized to run on Red Hat infrastructure. 

  • We provide the tools, content, and expertise to help you do your job more efficiently, operate more flexibly, maximize application automation, and digitally transform. 
  • Red Hat and our software partners collaborate on innovative solutions designed to deliver more value to you. This includes technologies like Kubernetes Operators to extend application automation through Day-1 and Day-2 capabilities. 
  • Instead of making ad hoc technology decisions, you can design a holistic architecture with the Red Hat ecosystem of software partners. This architecture includes common services, data, and end-to-end automation that lets IT manage and deploy across their cloud environments seamlessly with flexibility.  

3. Have confidence in certification 

Red Hat’s software partners have access to Red Hat’s technical expertise, software, and tools. This expertise helps them test, build, and certify their products.

  • Software certified on Red Hat Enterprise Linux® can be deployed and managed across on-premise, virtual, and public and private cloud environments.
  • Containers certified on Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat OpenShift are standardized on a single, enterprise-ready foundation.
