Sydney, Australia – Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, announced the global launch of the Red Hat Certified Cloud and Service Provider program. Replacing Red Hat’s existing Certified Cloud Provider program, the Certified Cloud and Service Provider program expands Red Hat’s cloud ecosystem to include and better support distributors, managed service providers and other partners that are heavily involved in all aspects of hybrid cloud build-out, not just multi-tenant public clouds.
As the model for cloud providers expands to include private cloud build-outs, Linux container-based infrastructure and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solutions, additional flexibility is needed to help these providers better meet customer needs for cloud-based Red Hat technologies. The Red Hat Certified Cloud and Service Provider program meets this need by not only broadening partner support, but by also expanding the choice of Red Hat solutions available to these partners, including:
• Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat Enterprise Linux for SAP HANA
• OpenShift by Red Hat
• Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform
• Red Hat JBoss Middleware
• Red Hat Gluster Storage
