Red Hat Consulting Cloud Services

Establishing the foundation for your present and future cloud initiatives


Despite the unmistakable benefits of cloud computing, most organizations are still determining whether and how to apply it to their business. Red Hat Consulting helps organizations pursuing a path to cloud adoption navigate through the uncertainty and establish a solid foundation.

Our business and technical consulting services help customers demonstrate a prototype cloud infrastructure solution, develop a strategic roadmap for cloud adoption, deploy middleware solutions into the cloud, and establish a solid foundation for present and future cloud initiatives.

Upon completion of this phase, Red Hat will work closely with you to map out a comprehensive deployment strategy.
