Microsoft and Red Hat partner to deliver more flexibility and choice

Scott Guthrie, Executive Vice President of the Cloud and Enterprise Group at Microsoft, on the new partnership with Red Hat:

The partnership we are announcing today with Red Hat extends our commitment to offer unmatched choice and flexibility in an enterprise-grade cloud experience across the hybrid cloud. With more than 80 percent of the Fortune 500 using Microsoft’s cloud, for us to team with the leader in enterprise Linux allows even more businesses to move to the cloud on their terms. By working with Red Hat, we will address common enterprise, ISV and developer needs for building, deploying and managing applications on Red Hat software across private and public clouds…

I like the new, more open Microsoft and its willingness to partner with other technology companies. This cooperation will help make the technology world a better place for all involved by utilizing the strengths of both companies.
