Linux dominates the IT landscape: Is your environment consistent and protected

Join Red Hat and a guest speaker from Forrester for an insightful discussion on why the adoption of commercial Linux continues to gain traction as organizations consider their long term IT strategy. Over the past decade, Linux has become the de facto choice for IT departments. It has expanded beyond data center use cases to include cloud and edge deployments for those working to migrate workloads or modernize their IT environments. Commercial Linux builds on community technology to bring safe innovation and stability that can be critical for IT teams to effectively operate and manage workloads anywhere they run. Your organization may need to use multiple environments to achieve the highest performance for specific workloads, or to accommodate evolving technology needs. You may also need to manage and maintain on-premise and legacy systems. For these reasons, the complexity never just increases - it multiplies. Are there too many systems to manage? Do you have skill gaps due to sprawl? Is the management of your security patches and compliance requirements overwhelming across asynchronous environments? This complexity can quickly render an inefficient infrastructure. How can you best deploy and manage Linux? Take control of your environment with a strategic, consistent approach to ensure that your features and services, compliance and security, governance and visibility, and data control are all working together, and managed from the same place.
