Helping the company to drive business transformation at scale to meet customer demand, Red Hat Enterprise Linux provides a more flexible and consistent foundation for security-enhanced hybrid cloud deployments. The platform enables Salesforce to free up valuable developer resources while at the same time consolidating IT systems, all helping to generate better business outcomes for customers.
Salesforce is standardizing the full scope of its hybrid cloud infrastructure on the world’s leading enterprise Linux platform, Red Hat Enterprise Linux. With this migration, Salesforce intends to gain even more efficiency in its IT operations, enhancing developer productivity and fueling greater innovation across the customer experience. Red Hat Enterprise Linux offers the necessary stability for modern IT workloads and enterprise-grade hybrid cloud deployments, enabling organizations to run applications anywhere while providing ease of management across on-premises and cloud environments.

- Improved system security measures with Red Hat Enterprise Linux’s layered approach to IT environment security, including support for many of the latest cryptographic and secure computing innovations.
- Enhanced customer support experiences through Red Hat’s support team, enabling Salesforce engineering to focus on delivering customer value without being bogged down in the minutiae of managing an operating system at cloud-scale.
