Red Hat's Gunnar Hellekson on virtualization and the subscription model

Federal News Radio

Gunnar Hellekson, the chief technology strategist for Red Hat's US public sector group, joined Industry Chatter with Francis Rose to discuss virtualization and the subscription model for agency IT systems.

In his role at Red Hat, Hellekson works with systems integrators and federal agencies to promote the use of open source technology by the government.

With the increased focus on as-a-service IT and virtualization at agencies, Hellekson said the subscription model is often a more effective way to meet the demands of the cloud environment.
