Tech M&A: What the Red Hat Acquisition of CoreOS Means for Containers

The containers and microservices industry has exploded in recent years. With companies like Docker blazing the trail, we've seen a huge expansion in the application container market with other open source platforms like Red Hat, Mesosphere, Kubernetes, CoreOS... and the list goes on. However, when it comes to major mergers and acquisitions, the containers market hasn't been high on the list of deals.

It was recently publicized that Red Hat is acquiring their fellow open source vendor CoreOS for $250 million. This deal will allow them to expand their share of the Kubernetes market and enhance their Kubernetes software management.

What does this type and size deal mean for such an emerging market? What are the possibilities, potential, and even ramifications for application container, cloud application, and cloud infrastructure providers?

Tune into this expert panel with Jeanne Morain, Digital Transformation & Cloud Expert, iSpeak Cloud, Jay Lyman, Principal Analyst, 451 Research and Chris Haddad, Chief Architect, Karux LLC as they discuss these and other pertinent questions in the tech M&A marketplace.
