RALEIGH, N.C. -- April 10, 2013

Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world’s leading provider of open source
solutions, today announced that John Mark Walker, community lead for the Red
Hat-sponsored Gluster Community, will be a featured keynote speaker at the
Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit on April 15, 2013. The Linux Foundation
Collaboration Summit is a global, invitation-only summit gathering core kernel
developers, distribution maintainers, ISVs, end users, system vendors and
other community organizations for plenary sessions and workgroup meetings to
meet face-to-face to tackle and solve the most pressing issues facing the
platform today.

Walker’s keynote will discuss Total Datacenter Victory: Open Source Data
Storage. The IT industry has seen the last ubiquitous, proprietary technology
in the datacenter. Current technology trends tie together a few vectors –
virtualization, automation, scalability, and open source – into a common
direction: speed, agility and rapid iteration. In his address, Walker will
discuss how unstructured data is growing exponentially, and the open source
industry is now at the vanguard of a new era of data storage and management,
and software-based storage is the way to claim victory over these challenges.
