Red hat announced on Tuesday, November 7, the acquisition of the hybrid cloud data management service NooBaa.
Red Hat Inc. is an American multinational software company providing open-source software products to the enterprise community. The company creates, maintains, and contributes to may free software projects. Red Hat is the second largest corporate contributor to the Linux kernel version 4.14 after Intel.
Though Red Hat was in the process of being acquired by IBM, the company is still operating independently and just announced their new acquired company – NooBaa.
NooBaa is a software-defined company. It provides the lowest TCO, most flexible platform for multi-cloud storage and serverless computing. It was founded in 2013 to address the need for a greater visibility and control over unstructured data spread throughout these distributed environments.
The addition of Noobaa’s data management technology will boost Red Hat’s existing portfolio of hybrid cloud offerings and helps advance Red Hat’s position as a leading provider of open hybrid cloud technologies.
According to Ranga Rangachari, Vice President and General Manager for storage hyper-converged infrastructure at Red Hat, the data portability is a key for organizations building and developing cloud-native applications across private and multiple clouds. He also added that they are thrilled to welcome a team of nine to the Red Hat family as they work together to further solidify Red Hat as the leading of open hybrid-cloud technologies.
