Red Hat Inc's Comment on Competitors and Industry Peers


We compete with a number of large and well-established companies that have significantly greater financial resources, larger development staffs and more extensive marketing and distribution capabilities. No assurance can be given that our efforts to compete effectively will be sufficient.
We believe that the major factors affecting the competitive landscape for our offerings include:


the name and reputation of the vendor or competitive offering; the product price, performance, reliability, security and functionality;

the alliances of the vendor with major industry hardware and/or software providers;the ability to adapt development, sales, marketing and support to the open source software model;

the financial and value relationship of subscription services;

the channel strength and number of channel partners of the vendor;

the quality of consulting and support services;

the number of Global 2000 company reference accounts;

the number of cloud computing partners and reference accounts;

the availability of third-party enterprise applications that are compatible with the technology;

the breadth of hardware and software ecosystem compatibility;

the management framework for administering the software technologies;

the ability of the vendor to quickly diagnose software issues and provide patches and other solutions; and

the strength of the vendor’s relationships and reputation in the open source community.

With respect to our operating system offerings, our competitors include Microsoft, which offers a hardware-independent, multi-user operating system that competes with Red Hat’s offerings. Moreover, we also compete with HP, IBM, Oracle and Unisys Corporation, each of which offer the UNIX operating system. Many of these competitors bundle competitive operating systems, such as UNIX, with their own hardware and additional software offerings, thereby making it more difficult for us to penetrate their customer bases. With respect to Linux operating systems, our competitors include The Attachmate Group, Inc. (“Attachmate”), with its SUSE brand of Linux, and Oracle’s Linux offering. We also compete with freely available Linux distributions, such as CentOS, Debian, Fedora, openSUSE, and Ubuntu.

With respect to our virtualization offerings, our competitors include Attachmate, Citrix Systems, Inc. (“Citrix”), Microsoft, Oracle and VMware. Microsoft and VMware offer virtualization technologies that are certified and supported with Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating system offerings, and Microsoft supports its server operating systems and application servers running on our virtualization offerings.

With respect to our middleware offerings, our competitors include IBM, Microsoft, Oracle and Pivotal Software, Inc. (“Pivotal”). All of these vendors offer the majority of their middleware products under a typical proprietary software license model. IBM and Oracle often bundle hardware and software for their customers, making it more difficult for us to penetrate their customer bases. Our middleware offering is heavily dependent on the Java programming language, which is controlled by Oracle.
With respect to our storage offerings, we compete with companies that provide software-based storage products, such as EMC and NetApp. Public cloud providers, such as Amazon and Rackspace, also offer storage capabilities.

With respect to our cloud technologies, we compete with companies that provide tools for enterprises to create private clouds, such as Citrix, Microsoft, Pivotal, and VMware, as well as with companies that provide public clouds and that allow users to consume computing resources as a service without the need to purchase equipment or software, such as Amazon, Google, Microsoft and Rackspace.

With respect to our service offerings, we face competition in the markets for services related to the development, deployment and integration of enterprise technologies. Our competitors in these markets include Accenture plc, HP, IBM, and Tata Consultancy Services Limited, as well as other technology consulting companies.

Due to the nature of open source technology, the open source software model is not characterized by the traditional barriers to entry that are found in the proprietary software model. For example, the financial and legal barriers to creating a new Linux distribution are relatively low because the software components typically included in Linux distributions are publicly available under open source licenses that permit copying, modification and redistribution. Anyone can use, copy, modify and redistribute Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Red Hat JBoss Middleware and our other open source offerings. However, they are not permitted to refer to these products as “Red Hat” or “Red Hat JBoss” products unless they have a formal business relationship with us that allows for such references. Moreover, our customers agree that during their support relationship with Red Hat, they will purchase a support subscription for each computer system, core, socket or other unit on which they deploy Red Hat’s software. In addition, the primary means by which customers can receive a certified version of Red Hat enterprise software, as well as new versions of the software, security updates, fixes, functionality enhancements and upgrades to the technology, if and when available, is to purchase and maintain a current subscription directly from us or our partners with whom we have agreements.

Although we believe that we generally compete on par or favorably with many of our competitors in a number of respects, we believe that a number of our key competitors currently have superior marketing and distribution capabilities. In addition, there are significantly more enterprise infrastructure applications available for competing operating systems technologies, such as Windows, than there are for Red Hat Enterprise Linux. An integral part of our strategy has been to help address these shortcomings by, among other methods, strengthening our existing strategic and channel partner relationships and entering into new ones to expand our marketing and distribution capabilities and by attracting more attention to the open source movement. Also, increasing the adoption of Red Hat enterprise technologies should create additional opportunities and incentives for software developers to write more applications that are compatible with Red Hat enterprise technologies.
