Leading with Linux

Red Hat has created a new initiative to elevate and reward partners who commit to Red Hat Enterprise Linux. We're calling this initiative, Leading with Linux.

Initiative information

With Red Hat® Enterprise Linux®, you can provide your customers with a flexible and stable foundation for hybrid cloud innovation and modern workloads that meet their evolving business needs.

IDC predicts that Red Hat Enterprise Linux will provide economic benefits of more than $1 trillion a year to customers and will save IT organizations nearly $7 billion this year alone1. Maybe that's why Red Hat Enterprise Linux is trusted by more than 90% of the Fortune 500 and deployed on nine million physical servers—that's 16% of all servers installed worldwide1.

Building on Red Hat Enterprise Linux also offers you multiple ways to grow bookings and sell additional services as for every $1 of revenue made by Red Hat, partners make $22.601
