Returning from OpenStack Summit in Hong Kong, I had some time on the fourteen-hour flight to think about Red Hat’s accomplishments within the OpenStack community, and more importantly, why they should matter to customers in the enterprise software space.
While I am gratified that Red Hat was again the top corporate contributor to the OpenStack Havana release, for me it goes beyond just the marketing value of being able to make that statement. It goes to the heart of the value of a subscription to our Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform, and the unique characteristics of open source projects versus commercial products.
