Red Hat Academy provides a curriculum to help education institutions keep pace with the demands of industry and offer top-quality education programs on Red Hat technologies for students to reach their academic and career potential. The curriculum involves hands-on instruction across platform, middleware, and cloud technologies built with input from Red Hat development, support, and field consulting teams. Rather than learning theoretical skills, students learn practical skills based on use cases from thousands of enterprise implementations.
Red Hat is the world’s leading provider of enterprise open source software solutions, using a community-powered approach to deliver reliable and high-performing Linux, hybrid cloud, container, and Kubernetes technologies. Red Hat helps customers integrate new and existing IT applications, develop cloud-native applications, standardize on our industry-leading operating system, and automate, secure, and manage complex environments.
On 09 July 2019, IBM completed the acquisition of Red Hat. Together, IBM and Red Hat will deliver next-generation hybrid multicloud platform that will be based on open source technologies, such as Linux and Kubernetes. IBM will preserve Red Hat's independence and neutrality and its commitment to open source will remain unchanged. More details can be found at IBM-Red Hat Acquisition.
