Red Hat Enterprise Linux is the result of a collaborative development process that begins in open source communities. We work alongside community members, customers, and even our competitors in thousands of upstream projects before integrating the best features and bug fixes into the Fedora Linux distribution—from which we form the base of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. This process leads to an enterprise-grade OS with stabilized open source features.
An OS as unique as your cloud
Every cloud is unique and requires an OS that can do anything. The only OSs with that kind of flexibility are open source, like Linux. Red Hat Enterprise Linux creates a standard operating environment for everything you do in every environment, powering apps that run across bare-metal, virtual, containerized, and private and public cloud environments. It’s a stable, consistent, and reliable fabric that stretches across these 4 IT footprints, regardless of the underlying hardware, service, or provider.
