About the partner:

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, they deliver a comprehensive portfolio of products and services using the same open, collaborative business model and an affordable, predictable subscription.
