If you want security, you need flexibility

When a mission is critical, agility is everything. See how Red Hat’s open and flexible hybrid approach can help the DoD connect clouds, teams, and processes.

Red Hat solutions support DoD operations

When each military branch brings its own expertise and technology to the battlefield, it’s necessary to integrate all critical data simultaneously across air, land, sea, space, and cyber domains to effectively coordinate and control operations.
