RALEIGH, N.C. -- February 4, 2013

Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world’s leading provider of open source
solutions, today announced it has joined the HP Enterprise Services Technology
Alliance program. HP Enterprise Services offers Red Hat products as part of
its Standard Operating Platform for outsourcing clients, and uses Red Hat
JBoss Middleware technology and Red Hat Enterprise Linux as platforms for
development and deployment of solutions to manage mission critical services in
the enterprise.

“Becoming a part of HP’s Enterprise Services Technology Alliance solidifies
the work we’ve done together to design, build and deploy solutions in a range
of industries maximizing flexibility while containing infrastructure costs,”
said Alan Sanchez, director of global strategic alliances, Red Hat. “These
solutions present the best of both companies to our customers, and the end
result is better business outcomes.”

“Optimizing IT performance requires strong solutions,” said Greg Robins, vice
president, Alliances, HP Enterprise Services. “Red Hat’s technology, combined
with HP’s services, provides clients with solutions that enable the
flexibility and agility today’s enterprises demand.”

HP Enterprise Services’ solutions designed and built on Red Hat’s platform are
aimed at delivering superior performance, security and scalability over
proprietary operating platforms.

    monitor Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) services and agile
    applications blending network, IT and Web 2.0 services with subscriber and
    application information;

    Interface management for registration, authentication, authorization and
    entitlement, as well as rich SOA policy feature, and service monetization
    that support IT and third party application developers;

    application solution for Communication Service Providers to provide to
    their business and enterprise customers. The solution enhances
    productivity by supporting the use of smart phones and tablets with end to
    end application security outside the office.
  *HP Aggregation Platform for SaaS provides a common foundation for multiple
    as-a-service offerings. It integrates and automates important service
    management processes such as provisioning, activation, reporting, service
    usage and revenue settlement.

HP Enterprise Services Technology Alliance partners are globally recognized
companies collaborating with HP to develop, implement and jointly market
differentiated services. These alliances focus on specific technologies or
domains, and provide standards that can become a pervasive part of product and
service delivery frameworks.
