“Hello, world!”, “Hello, partners!”

Red Hat Developer is your source for productive software development on Red Hat platforms. Red Hat Partner Connect is your colleagues’ source for driving business in the Red Hat ecosystem. If you still question the value of partnering with Red Hat, this new IDC study may help you decide to join our partner program.

IDC interviewed Red Hat partners who reported that certifying their software with Red Hat has a significant and positive impact on their businesses and improves overall efficiencies around development. Here are a few takeaways from the paper:

  • 49% higher revenue for software certified by Red Hat helps justify your development on Red Hat platforms.
  • 17% faster lifecycle means you deliver more applications and services.

Getting to your first line of code quickly is great, but what really matters is the time it takes you as a Technology Partner to:


Differentiate your products


Delight your customers


Influence your company revenues

Today, your Linux containers are not really portable - you have to build one for each destination platform. Until now. The new Red Hat Universal Base Images enable you to build your container ONCE and freely redistribute it to multiple deployment platforms - whether Red Hat or not. Read more about UBI below, or visit the Red Hat container tools topic.

In this brief video, Red Hat's Scott McCarty demonstrates Red Hat Universal Base Images by creating a container image on Fedora, then deploying it on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.

Why Certify?

Certifying your product means:


All components are confirmed to be from a trusted source and the underlying packages have not been altered.


Container images are free of known platform component vulnerabilities.


New vulnerabilities are promptly addressed through the Continuous Build Service - important for CI/CD environments.


Software can be deployed across Red Hat footprints — from bare metal to cloud.


Applications are published in the Red Hat Ecosystem Catalog; Operators in OpenShift Operator Hub.


The complete stack is commercially supported by Red Hat and your company via TSANet.
