Austin, TX – Codero Holdings, Inc. (Codero), a leader in managed hosting services and technology enablement, today announced that, in addition to providing infrastructure as a service (IAAS), the company will now offer platform-agnostic IT consultation, architecture, implementation, and management to help customers reap the benefits of a hybrid multi-cloud approach.

This announcement comes on the heels of Codero’s joint membership in and certifications from the Microsoft Azure Cloud Solution Provider Program and the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Network.


“Customers’ IT needs are complexifying and changing rapidly, and it’s vital to their success that we be able to provide the ideal architecture for them, even when Codero infrastructure isn’t the optimal option or is only part of the solution,” said John Martis, CEO of Codero. “Shifting our focus from simply selling our own infrastructure to providing platform-agnostic consultation services and ongoing management ensures we’re able to help our customers optimize, scale, and evolve their businesses however they need to over the coming years.”

Codero will continue to offer bare metal servers and most of the products upon which the company has built its success, but customers will now be able to utilize Codero’s team of experts to configure and manage their AWS and Azure environments as well. Moreover, the company will employ a hybrid multi-cloud approach to design and build custom implementations that span multiple vendors and platforms when it makes sense.

With 40 percent of organizations planning to use multiple, interoperable cloud environments in the next two years, Codero expects to employ hybrid multi-cloud strategies for many of its customers.

In addition, Codero offers multiple managed options for Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) and Cloud Backup, as well as suites of managed solutions designed for companies working in ecommerce, digital media, development, and gaming, along with small businesses and those with compliance or regulatory needs.

“It’s an exciting time in hosting because customers no longer have to experience tradeoffs – we can connect virtually unlimited environments across multiple vendors to custom-build the exact right implementation based on each company’s workloads, applications, site traffic, and other key factors,” said Martis. “Our team has always thrived on finding creative solutions and treating customers as individuals. These new relationships and managed solution offerings enable us to take that approach much further.”

RALEIGH, N.C. – Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, today announced that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire CoreOS, Inc., an innovator and leader in Kubernetes and container-native solutions, for a purchase price of $250 million, subject to certain adjustments at closing that are not expected to be material. Red Hat’s acquisition of CoreOS will further its vision of enabling customers to build any application and deploy them in any environment with the flexibility afforded by open source. By combining CoreOS’s complementary capabilities with Red Hat’s already broad Kubernetes and container-based portfolio, including Red Hat OpenShift, Red Hat aims to further accelerate adoption and development of the industry’s leading hybrid cloud platform for modern application workloads.

As applications move to hybrid and multicloud environments, a growing number of organizations are using containers to more easily build, deploy and move applications to, from, and across clouds. IDC noted1, “Substantial advances in cloud adoption, simplification, and portability are underway. The demand for cloud continues to grow, and enterprises now anticipate that cloud architecture will dominate their spending for the next several years. With the growing sophistication of containers, customers are looking to their application platform providers to help them use containers to transition and extend existing production applications to be useful in public or private cloud.”


Founded in 2013, CoreOS was created with a goal of building and delivering infrastructure for organizations of all sizes that mirrored that of large-scale software companies, automatically updating and patching servers and helping to solve pain points like downtime, security and resilience. Since its early work to popularize lightweight Linux operating systems optimized for containers, CoreOS has become well-regarded as a leader behind award-winning technologies that are enabling the broad adoption of scalable and resilient containerized applications.

CoreOS is the creator of CoreOS Tectonic, an enterprise-ready Kubernetes platform that provides automated operations, enables portability across private and public cloud providers, and is based on open source software. It also offers CoreOS Quay, an enterprise-ready container registry. CoreOS is also well-known for helping to drive many of the open source innovations that are at the heart of containerized applications, including Kubernetes, where it is a leading contributor; Container Linux, a lightweight Linux distribution created and maintained by CoreOS that automates software updates and is streamlined for running containers; etcd, the distributed data store for Kubernetes; and rkt, an application container engine, donated to the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), that helped drive the current Open Container Initiative (OCI) standard.

Red Hat was early to embrace containers and container orchestration and has contributed deeply to related open source communities, including Kubernetes, where it is the second-leading contributor behind only Google. Red Hat is also a leader in enabling organizations around the world to embrace container-based applications, including its work on Red Hat OpenShift, the industry’s most comprehensive enterprise Kubernetes platform. Now with the combination of Red Hat and CoreOS, Red Hat amplifies its leadership in both upstream community and enterprise container-based solutions.

The transaction is expected to have no material impact to Red Hat’s guidance for its fourth fiscal quarter or fiscal year ending Feb. 28, 2018.

The transaction is expected to close in January 2018, subject to customary closing conditions.

About Red Hat, Inc.
Red Hat is the world’s leading provider of open source software solutions, using a community-powered approach to reliable and high-performing cloud, Linux, middleware, storage and virtualization technologies. Red Hat also offers award-winning support, training, and consulting services. As a connective hub in a global network of enterprises, partners, and open source communities, Red Hat helps create relevant, innovative technologies that liberate resources for growth and prepare customers for the future of IT.
