Icon-Red_Hat-Media_and_documents-Quotemark_Open-B-Red-RGB When I think of Red Hat, the first thing that comes to mind is trust. We trusted them because we had seen their product. And whenever we needed help, support was available. The more support we got, the more trust we had. And that’s how the relationship has grown.
