More than 2 decades ago, Red Hat had a spark of an idea—a vision for developing software differently. They believed that collaboration with an ecosystem of IT leaders, open source advocates, developers, and partners could create a better foundation for the future of IT—Red Hat® Enterprise Linux®.
But that was just the beginning.
Today, Red Hat delivers a comprehensive portfolio of products and services using the same open, collaborative business model and an affordable, predictable subscription.
Red Hat leaders apply open source principles—like open exchange, transparency, and meritocracy—to their management styles. It helped us become the first billion-dollar open source company, and it's how we continue to thrive.
