Red Hat - Catalyst for creating better Open Source technology

The Red Hat mission is to be a catalyst for creating better Open Source technology within communities of customers, contributors, and partners. 

Redpill Linpro has been a Red Hat partner since 2006, and our aim is to be the go-to company in the Nordics for customers needing expertise in Red Hat products and technology.

We actively encourage our employees to be certified in Red Hat technology so that we can better serve our customers.


Red Hat Linux

Red Hat initially saw success supporting a custom distribution of Linux, then named "Red Hat Linux". The growth and reliability of Red Hat Linux made the two synonymous in many people’s minds.

Since those early days, Red Hat’s solutions and technologies have built on this success to include nearly all aspects of the IT stack.

Red Hat curates, secures, and supports a Linux distribution—now known as Red Hat Enterprise Linux, a change that took place in 2003 as a result of merging with the Fedora Linux Project. 

Today, Red Hat Enterprise Linux supports and powers software and technologies for automation, cloud, containers, middleware, storage, application development, microservices, virtualization, management, and more.

Linux plays a major role as the core of many of Red Hat’s offerings. It’s far beyond simply being an operating system for servers—Red Hat Linux is the foundation for the modern IT stack.

Red Hat software is the second-largest contributor to the upstream Kubernetes project and the originator of many of its key features, components, and related container technologies. Red Hat has years of experience running Kubernetes in the cloud and supporting organizations using containers in production. 

Today, Red Hat is working with the cloud-native community to push the boundaries of what containers and Kubernetes can do, from serverless computing to machine learning.

Red Hat does a lot of work on container technologies with the greater open source community. Red Hat developers improve features, reliability, and security to make sure your containers perform and remain stable.

Red Hat's also the second largest contributor to the Docker and Kubernetes codebases and works with the Open Container Initiative and the Cloud Native Computing Foundation.

As with all open source projects, Red Hat software contributes code and improvements back to the upstream codebase—sharing advancements along the way.

Open Hybrid Red Hat Cloud

Red Hat believes in the power of open hybrid cloud. Standalone cloud deployments based on proprietary technology aren't the answer because they inhibit clouds from interacting with one another.

Open hybrid cloud brings the interoperability, workload portability, and flexibility of open source to hybrid environments, bridging them together and creating a unified experience.

On the whole, all Red Hat subscriptions will give you access to a knowledge base, updates and new versions of the software. Some subscriptions will also give you access to technical support, either during business hours or 24/7.

Technical support can prove useful not only when systems are down, but also when planning a new system so that best practice routines are followed or to figure out that little problem that no one really knows how to get rid of.
