Red Hat Dons Makara

Red Hat (NYSE: RHT), the Raleigh, NC-based provider of open source software support, said today that it has acquired Makara, a Redwood City, CA-based startup that specializes in software for managing cloud-based applications. Red Hat said the acquisition would “accelerate the development of Red Hat’s comprehensive Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solution as part of its Cloud Foundations portfolio,” a set of open-source operating systems, middleware, and virtualization systems that companies can use to run private cloud-like data infrastructures.
