How open source and hybrid cloud brought Microsoft and Red Hat together

Two very different companies, one common goal: open source innovation for the future of business and development. Join Red Hat’s Matt Hicks, SVP of software engineering, and Microsoft’s John Gossman, lead architect for Microsoft Azure, to hear why the companies forged an alliance to help businesses progress from on-premise environments to a hybrid cloud world.
