Why Red Hat

As customers aspire to technology-driven business transformation, Red Hat continues to provide trusted, secure, innovative and supported open source enterprise technology solutions to meet these needs.

Stronger together

Partners have always been an important part of the Red Hat story. The combination of your expertise, intellectual property, and our products is what brings the most value to our customers. Whether you influence customers as a solution provider, independent software vendor (ISV), or global systems integrator (GSI); bundle products as an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) or ISV; host workloads as a Certified Cloud & Service provider (CCSP); or distribute our products, our collaboration works to our mutual benefit.

Partners drive over 70% of Red Hat bookings, underscoring the importance of these relationships. As customer demands for technology intensify, Red Hat is increasing its investment supporting our partners to ensure they have sustainable ways to achieve growth.
