The fourth quarter marked our 56th consecutive quarter of revenue growth, contributing to Red Hat's first fiscal year crossing $2 billion in total revenue,' stated Jim Whitehurst, President and Chief Executive Officer of Red Hat.
'Customers are demanding technologies that modernize the development, deployment and life-cycle management of applications across hybrid cloud environments.
