Red Hat Partner Programs
and Development

Let's do something great. Together.


Partners play a key role in Red Hat's go-to-market strategy and overall success. It's been said that Red Hat wouldn't be Red Hat without our expansive partner ecosystem, which drives more than 70% of our revenue.

Through open collaboration, Red Hat and its partners are able to leverage each other's strengths. Red Hat's leadership in open innovation, whether it's applied to technology, people or processes, is increasingly valued in the marketplace and opens new opportunities for us both. Our predisposition towards collaboration helps us design solutions together. Whether you build, service, or sell products and solutions, our partner programs can provide you with more than just the necessary tools to address today's customer's IT challenges, as well as a wealth of knowledge that will advance us both towards the future.

If you are a new or existing partner, or considering becoming a Red Hat partner, we hope you take advantage of everything our programs have to offer.

Because we truly are stronger together.
