Red Hat licenses/licensing after IBM acquisition

Latest response


Are there any changes to Red Hat licenses/licensing of its products after its acquisition by IBM ?



Hi Geronimo Aquino,

What were you looking to purchase? (by the way, I do not work for Red Hat). If you just wanted a single individual product, you can most likely buy it directly at If you wish to contact sales directly, perhaps discuss options, see this Red Hat web page with phone numbers for regions worldwide (scroll down at that link for phone numbers).



Hi Geronimo,

As of today nothing has changed ... and most probably nothing will change after the merger is completed ... but who knows ?
Nobody can really predict how things may evolve, so the correct answer to your question and all we can do is : "wait and see"

Cheers :)
