Software is taking hold of the world, and open-source — with companies like Red Hat Inc. as a major proponent — is becoming the de-facto way in which software is developed.
The managed services model, under which many of Red Hat’s open-source software partners operate, has allowed the company to build profitable businesses around its offerings.
“Look at a company like Mongo; they’ve heavily pivoted toward the managed service,” said Stu Miniman (pictured), director of market insights, cloud platforms, at Red Hat. “ It is where we see the largest growth in our area. The products that we have again with Amazon, with Microsoft, huge growth, lots of interest. It’s one of the things I spend most of my time talking on.”
Miniman spoke with theCUBE industry analysts Dave Vellante and Paul Gillin during the Red Hat Summit event , an exclusive broadcast on theCUBE, SiliconANGLE Media’s livestreaming studio. They recapped the event, touching on key takeaways and product and partnership announcements. ( * Disclosure below.)
