Red Hat, an open source solutions provider, announced that Salesforce, a CRM provider, is standardizing its global hybrid cloud infrastructure on Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Helping the company to drive business transformation at scale to meet customer demand, Red Hat Enterprise Linux provides a more flexible and consistent foundation for security-enhanced hybrid cloud deployments. The platform enables Salesforce to free up valuable developer resources while at the same time consolidating IT systems, all helping to generate better business outcomes for customers.

Salesforce is a customer-centric, innovation-driven provider of cloud-based customer relationship management (CRM) systems, using a software-as-service model to support a robust customer base. Over the years, Salesforce has continued to grow and evolve its offerings to incorporate breakthrough technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), automated self-service tools and real-time data insights to support customer business needs. In doing so, Salesforce relies on a massive IT footprint that spans hundreds of thousands of systems running in traditional datacenter environments and in Hyperforce, Salesforce’s platform architecture designed for the public cloud. The company’s rapid growth and innovation adoption also led to a heterogeneous operating system environment, including CentOS Linux 7, which required additional maintenance and management from Salesforce’s skilled infrastructure teams.

Now, Salesforce is standardizing the full scope of its hybrid cloud infrastructure on the world’s leading enterprise Linux platform, Red Hat Enterprise Linux. With this migration, Salesforce intends to gain even more efficiency in its IT operations, enhancing developer productivity and fueling greater innovation across the customer experience. Red Hat Enterprise Linux offers the necessary stability for modern IT workloads and enterprise-grade hybrid cloud deployments, enabling organizations to run applications anywhere while providing ease of management across on-premises and cloud environments.
