started our office in Bangalore early this year to address the demand for our

products and services in Southern India. Since then, we have seen an increasing

trend in Linux usage and adoption in this part of the country.

The interest shown by Government and enterprises towards adoption of open

source and Linux solutions have encouraged us to set up a second office in

South." He further added. "India is a strategic market for Red Hat and

this is the third office we have added in less than a year. We now have our

presence in seven cities in India."

Open Source Architecture is Red Hat's Technology Strategy for extending the
