Jim Whitehurst, president and CEO of Red Hat, said that it had managed to end the quarter sealing a couple of significant deals, which couldn't be revealed due to customer confidentiality, and things were looking healthy as it moved into its second fiscal quarter.
"Our top 25 deals that were up for renewal in the quarter renewed and not only renewed, but they did so with a total value at over 120% of the original value," he said.
"We experienced solid demand in all major geographies and across all our product suites," he added.
