Red Hat and Microsoft: Partnering to bring Enterprise Customers to the Cloud

Red Hat and Microsoft: Partnering to bring Enterprise Customers to the Cloud

For years Windows and Linux have been rival development and runtime environments used by two distinct development communities – .Net vs. J2EE. At least that’s what we thought. In fact, they are not rivals at all, really. Rather, they are both commonly used by nearly all enterprises to develop and execute the applications they need to run their businesses.

Today, those applications are being modernized, containerized and redeployed across multiple clouds. Business and IT planners alike are rethinking how to develop new cloud-native applications and the infrastructure needed to deploy them to their best execution venue whether on-premises, in or across private, public or hybrid clouds. They expect the IT vendors and service providers they use to do more than just coexist. They expect partnerships dedicated to customer success – and none more so than among the two leading vendors in each community, Microsoft and Red Hat.

In this webinar 451 Research Principal Analyst Carl Lehmann, Nicholas Gerasimatos of Red Hat and Jose Miguel Parrella, Sr Product Marketing Manager for Open Source at Microsoft will address:
–  How to overcome common challenges of application modernization, infrastructure management, and cloud deployment.
–  The partnership, and capabilities enabled therein, between Microsoft and Red Hat.
–  How Microsoft Azure and Red Hat ecosystems support and complement each other.

Participants will learn how Microsoft and Red Hat build upon each other’s strengths in container-based, cloud-native application development, infrastructure deployment and operations to better serve their mutual customers through joint business practices, technology support, and ecosystem.

Red Hat and Microsoft partner to reduce development hassles

Red Hat and Microsoft partner to reduce development hassles

“We’re the first Linux provider to have a fully supported version of .NET”

.NET  is just one of the ways in which Red Hat and Microsoft are coming together for mutually beneficial developments.

Another point of cooperation was the creation of a flexible language server protocol so that languages being used for app development can be plugged into Red Hat and Microsoft’s tools interchangeably. The aim here was not to make the tools themselves interchangeable: “It’s not about making it be consistent; it’s about having that choice. … The idea here is that you get to choose your tool that works the way you want.”
