A Fortune of Opportunity

Red Hat Training at New Horizons Computer Learning CentersRed Hat is unique in the information technology industry in that it provides a reliable, sustainable support resource for companies and organizations using “Open Source” technologies. Software packaged, sold, and supported by Red Hat comes from the Open Source Consortium (OSS), from which downloads are available free of charge. Members of the consortium contribute to the continuing development and improvement of the software.

It is estimated that 100% of Fortune 500 now use Open Source technologies in their information and automation operations, along with 78% of all other companies worldwide. Part of their willingness to do so can be attributed to having Red Hat accept responsibility for support and maintenance of the software.

According to New Horizons Director of Products Stephanie Brannon, “Red Hat provides open-source software products that deliver efficient, scalable, and reliable platforms for an organization's applications. Red Hat technologies power a large percentage of the servers that host web sites and cloud-based services.”

New Horizons President, Jamie Fiely, added that, “Many organizations are looking for certified Red Hat professionals to help implement and manage their open-source Red Hat operating systems. Red Hat certifications are an industry leading accomplishment, as it ensures you will be able to get the most out of Red Hat deployments.”
