Q & A Session with the Red Hat CEO

Last week I had the privilege of being on stage with the CEO of Red Hat Mr. Jim WhiteHurst and the GM of Red Hat India, Mr. Anuj Kumar. I was invited to be a part of the OpenEdge event that Red Hat has hosted for their enterprise customers in India.
Red Hat has a compelling Cloud strategy for its customers. On the IaaS front, they have CloudForms that enables enterprises and service providers build Private and Public Clouds. Red Hat OpenShift is the PaaS offering based on Makara that Red Hat has acquired last year. Other products like Red Hat MRG and the recent acquisition of Gluster make them a very strong player in the Cloud domain.
Q & A Session with Jim and Anuj
My role was to do a question & answer session with Jim and Anuj around their Cloud strategy. While I do not have the PR approval to discuss the details of the session, all I can say is that I am impressed with the road map and the solid story that Red Hat has around the Cloud offerings.

I recently covered Red Hat OpenShift on CloudStory.in.
