CRN Exclusive Q&A: Former VCE VP On Why He Jumped To Red Hat


What is the future of the Cisco-Red Hat relationship?

One of the things that attracted me is I started asking around at Cisco: where do you see Red Hat? Where do I fit into that? Everyone at Cisco said it is a great organization with great products. My relationships within Cisco and my relationships in the channel really bled [into] what Cisco is looking to do from a cloud perspective. It is a unique position for me with a lot of contacts, a long-time at Cisco, a lot of channel relationships, the complete blend. That is exactly what Red Hat was looking for.
