Leading Solutions Providers Turn to Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform to Drive Customer Innovation

Red Hat, Inc., the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today highlighted global momentum for its enterprise Kubernetes platform, Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, with expanded support from global systems integrators (SI). Enterprise digital transformation strategies frequently demand flexible, scalable, and modern platforms to run cloud-native workloads, a need that SIs seek to address with Kubernetes-based orchestration technologies. Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform offers a powerful and flexible Kubernetes platform based on proven enterprise technologies, paired with a robust partner ecosystem and a vibrant community, providing SIs with an innovative foundation to drive end user transformation.

According to Gartner, "In cloud-native computing areas, once a technology is regarded as a de facto standard, the ecosystem surrounding it will quickly grow. Therefore, an important action is to be familiar with the container management ecosystem and to align to de facto standard candidates such as Kubernetes." Across Red Hat's partner ecosystem, SIs are taking notice of Kubernetes' importance to digital transformation and cloud-native development, and are turning to Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform to help fuel these organizational efforts.

Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform unites developers and IT operations on a single platform to build, deploy, and manage applications consistently across hybrid cloud infrastructures. This helps businesses achieve greater value by delivering modern and traditional applications with shorter development cycles and increased efficiencies. The platform is built on open source innovation and industry standards, including Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Kubernetes, and is trusted by many companies around the world.
