Red Hat Teams For City Open Source Tech Program; Ashesh Badani Comments

RedHatLogoRed Hat is working with a non-profit organization to help U.S. cities engage with citizens through using open source, cloud computing technology.

Code for America will bring Red Hat’s OpenShift platform-as-a-service offering to CfA Fellows and partner communities for no cost, Red Hat said Thursday.

CfA Fellows use OpenShift to build, test, deploy and manage applications and write codes aimed at helping city governments and residents collaborate, the company said.

“As PaaS becomes an increasingly important component in the adoption of cloud across industries and geographies, it will become more crucial for government agencies to be ahead of the curve,” said Ashesh Badani, Red Hat global leader for cloud and OpenShift.

“We are excited to be able to offer the great benefits of our OpenShift PaaS to city governments through our work with Code for America,” Badani added.

CfA Fellows will have one free year of access to OpenShift technology and 10 partner cities will have one option year of free Red Hat hosting and services.
