"With double digit revenue growth and record billings, our fourth quarter capped off a year of solid performance, moving us closer to our milestone revenue goal of a billion dollars," said Jim Whitehurst, President and Chief Executive Officer of Red Hat. "As we look forward, we believe that we are well positioned at the confluence of several major technology trends in the data center, including cloud computing, virtualization and middleware. Red Hat's products directly address these trends and deliver innovative, cost-saving solutions to our customers that we expect will continue to drive our growth."

The Raleigh company added over 350 employees throughout the year mainly in areas of engineering and sales. It managed to tighten its budget in certain areas and continued to selectively invest  in others as a strategy to combat the tough economic conditions .According to Charlie Peters, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, Red Hat " invested in sales training, systems and new equipment while holding the line on travel and other discretionary costs "

Red Hat has had several significant market wins lately. Non profit Symbian Foundation which develops the completely open source Symbian mobile platform announced earlier this month that it has adopted Red Hat Enterprise Linux for its private, cloud-based developer website and server. Last Week, IBM said that it was incorporating the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization for its new Smart Business Development & Test service on IBM Cloud.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
