Red Hat Makes Aggressive Cloud Portfolio Move with Makara Acquisition

With the purchase of cloud computing specialist firm Makara, Red Hat (NYSE: RHT) has given a boost to its Cloud Foundations portfolio via an enhanced Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solution.

“Cloud Foundations is about enabling customers and developers to have an easy on-ramp to the cloud, ” said Paul Cormier, president of products and technologies at Red Hat. “With the addition of Makara, we aim to further simplify application deployment and management. We welcome the Makara team and look forward to accelerating our delivery of PaaS solutions to the market.”

California-based Makara helps clients “deploy, manage, monitor and scale their applications on both private or public clouds.”

By merging solutions with Makara, Red Hat’s PaaS solution, which allows organizations to quickly transition their applications to both public and private clouds with minimal modifications, will see a considerable boost in performance.
