Red Hat has expanded and launched two 'Engineering Centers of Excellence' in Bangalore and Pune, India, announced the open source solutions provider today.
The Pune centre is Red Hat's largest engineering facility outside of North America at 50,000 sq. ft., the IT company said.
With the expansion in India, Red Hat hopes to incubate, sustain and support local talent and maintain high quality of contributions to the open source community locally and internationally.
"2012 is the year of the developer for Red Hat and with a growing number of developers coming from India, Red Hat brought several notable global developer events to APAC - Fedora Users and Developers' Conference (FUDCon) in November 2011 in Pune and JBoss User and Developers Conference (JUDCon) in January 2012 in Bangalore," said Anuj Kumar, general manager, Red Hat India. "With our new facilities and events like this, we hope to continue showing our commitment to developers throughout the APAC region."
"Innovative product development and engineering services are the cornerstone of any company with global aspirations and we expect the current expansion to further Red Hat's goal to lead the way in innovative collaboration and open source technology development locally, regionally and globally," said Paul Cormier, president, products and technologies, Red Hat.
