Business News: Red Hat to expand in India

From the News-Observer:

Red Hat plans to spend $20 million and triple its head count in India over the next several years as it continues to target the surging Indian market.

The open source software company, which has about 340 employees at its Raleigh headquarters, sees India as a “fundamental” part of its long-term global strategy, said Joanne Rohde, Red Hat’s executive vice president of worldwide operations. China, which has a year-old Red Hat facility, is a major target as well.

“We’re setting an agenda for new ways of competing in those markets,” she said.
