Red Hat develops and provides open source software and services, including the Red Hat Linux operating system, worldwide.
The company offers a comprehensive software portfolio, covering 5 key technology areas: cloud, middleware, operating platform, storage, and virtualization, provided with a subscription model.
The cloud segment offers the ability of running workloads within Online Services to abstract, pool, and share scalable resources across a network. Middleware is software that provides common services and capabilities to applications and helps developers build applications more efficiently. Red Hat uses Linux as stable operating platform to enable IT workloads and deployments – from bare metal to virtual, cloud, and containers.
Its data storage segment firstly consists of Red Hat Gluster Storage – a software-defined file storage platform to handle high-capacity tasks like backup and archival as well as high-performance tasks of analytics and virtualization. Secondly, it consists of Red Hat Ceph Storage – a software-defined object storage platform that also provides interfaces for block and file storage. It supports cloud infrastructure, media repositories, backup and restore systems, and data lakes.
The virtualization segment allows customers to create multiple simulated environments or dedicated resources from a single, physical hardware system.
Red Hat was founded in 1993 and has its corporate headquarters in Raleigh, North Carolina. It became a subsidiary of IBM on July 9, 2019.
