The Coalition for Innovation (C4I) was formed between Intel, HP, Red Hat and Sybase as a solution alliance for mission critical data centers to migrate from legacy infrastructures to industry standard / non proprietary (x86) platforms. Our goal is to confidently and cost effectively migrate to, and build new workloads on these platforms to improve their performance and lower their total cost of ownership. With HP Converged Infrastructure, Intel Processor technologies, the Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating system, and Sybase IQ and ASE, the Coalition 4 Innovation provides a solutions platform to support mission critical demands.
