RALEIGH, N.C.–– Red Hat, Inc., the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2019 ended February 28, 2019.

"Enterprise organizations are continuing to move to hybrid cloud environments, which is contributing to strong growth in Red Hat's cloud enabling technologies," stated Jim Whitehurst, President and Chief Executive Officer of Red Hat. "Across the portfolio, our total number of customers with active subscriptions greater than $5 million increased 33% year-over-year in fiscal year 2019. Also key to that growth is the increasing number of Ansible and OpenShift customers, which now total more than 1,300 and 1,000, respectively, as of the end of fiscal year 2019."

"In FY19, we continued to strengthen our strategic relationships with enterprise organizations, which was evidenced by continued growth in sizeable commitments.
