Enabling Open Source High Performance Workloads with Red Hat

High performance workloads, big data, and analytics are increasingly important in finding real value in today's applications and data. Before we deploy applications and mine data for mission and business insights, we need a high-performance, rapidly scalable, resilient infrastructure foundation that can accurately, securely, and quickly access data from all relevant sources. Red Hat has technology that allows high performance workloads with a scale-out foundation that integrates multiple data sources and can transition workloads across on-premise and cloud boundaries.
