Standardize to stay agile

Linux is the standard for enterprise-scale operations. But not all Linux distributions are created equal. Cost-free and cloud versions are convenient, but they may not integrate with other environments or offer the security safeguards every organization needs.

Standardizing on genuine enterprise Linux from Red Hat brings consistency across environments and systems. And that consistency gives you portability, so you can deploy and move existing and future workloads anywhere.

That includes the artificial intelligence workloads organizations must deliver to compete. As the fully integrated foundation of our application platform, Red Hat Enterprise Linux delivers what teams need to deploy AI across any datacenter, public cloud or edge: performance, security, and compatibility with the broadest set of hardware, frameworks, and libraries.

Build security from the source

With Red Hat Enterprise Linux, you can establish a strong security posture. Built on a trusted software supply chain, it has built-in features that let you proactively identify and mitigate vulnerabilities. That security-focused foundation gives you the flexibility to shift when circumstances demand it.
