Red Hat is a software company that assembles open source components for the Linux operating system and related programs into distribution packages that can easily be ordered and implemented.
It was announced that IBM (Big Blue) would be acquiring Red Hat. Red Hat is expected to join IBM’s Hybrid Cloud team as an independent business unit and Big Blue has promised to preserve the neutrality of Red Hat’s open source development heritage. In past years, IBM and Red Hat have collaborated to create enterprise-class versions of Linux and, more recently, to market Kubernetes and hybrid cloud offerings for larger corporate shops.
Red Hat was one of the first companies to realize that “free" software could be sold as a product. After examining the successful marketing campaign of Evian water, Red Hat executives concluded that in order to be successful, the company had to create more Linux users and brand Red Hat as the Linux name that customers preferred. Today, the “Red Hat Plan" is often discussed in business schools as a model for making customer support a company’s primary product.
Current Red Hat products include:
- Red Hat Ansible – an open source IT configuration management (CM) and automation platform.
- Red Hat Atomic Host – a variant of Red Hat Enterprise Linux with optimizations for container hosting.
- Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) – a distribution of the Linux operating system developed for the business market.
- Red Hat OpenShift – an open source container application platform.
- Red Hat OpenStack Platform – a commercially supported distribution of open source OpenStack software designed to build and manage large pools of compute, storage and networking resources in public and private clouds.
- Red hat Package Manager – a program for installing, uninstalling, and managing software packages in Linux.
- Red Hat Satellite – an IT infrastructure management tool primarily used to monitor and manage Red Hat Enterprise Linux environments. Satellite is part of Red Hat’s four-piece systems management tool set for enterprise IT, which also includes Ansible, CloudForms and the Red Hat Insights service.
- Red Hat Storage (RHS) – a distributed file system that acts as a scale-out network-attached storage (NAS) and object storage software solution.
- Red Hat Virtualization (RHV) – an enterprise-class virtualization platform
