Red Hat, SAIC Collaborating to Make Open Source More Accessible; Paul Smith Comments

Paul Smith of Red Hat

 Red Hat and SAIC have agreed to collaborate to create solutions that will try to maximize open source cloud computing technologies that are scalable, secure, interoperable and portable.

The companies’ goal is to reduce infrastructure costs and ease the Defense Department‘s adoption of cloud computing.

Through the collaboration, Red Hat solutions will help progress at SAIC’s Advanced Computer Engineering Laboratory located in North Charleston, S.C. 

Those solutions include Red Hat Enterprise LinuxJBoss Enterprise Middlewar, Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization, systems management technologies, Red Hat CloudForms and OpenShift Platform-as-a-Service cloud computing platform.

Specifically, collaborators will learn how Red Hat’s modular and open technology portfolio can be integrated into their cloud architecture. 

This collaboration comes soon after SAIC’s recently announced cybersecurity partnership with McAfee.

“Red Hat has a longstanding relationship with SAIC to provide open source technologies and methodologies on large programs in the federal government, dating back to our first master marketing agreement in 2006,” said Paul Smith, Red Hat’s public sector vice president and general manager.

“This most recent iteration capitalizes the widespread use by cloud providers of open source architectures to deliver services. Red Hat is a leading provider of supported, secure and scalable products for both IaaS and PaaS.”
