UAE, May 14, 2019

US-based Red Hat, a leader in open-source software, announced that more than 1,000 customers are using Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, solidifying the company as a hybrid cloud and enterprise Kubernetes leader.

This milestone comes as Red Hat announces the availability of Red Hat OpenShift 4, the next generation of its trusted enterprise Kubernetes platform, to deliver cloud-like simplicity with full-stack automated operations across the hybrid cloud, said a company statement.

Open source technology gives the company the ability to deliver what the internal and external customers need in a way that differentiates us from our competitors.

The company’s development teams using Red Hat OpenShift have, on average, three or four times more product deployments, equating to more features launching to our end users faster.

The 451 Research estimates the application container software market should grow to more than $5.5 billion by 2023 with a compound annual growth rate of 28 per cent.

As this technology space expands, a growing number of businesses have trusted Red Hat to support digital transformation efforts powered by containers and Kubernetes. In the past year, Red Hat OpenShift customers have nearly doubled.

Red Hat OpenShift customers represent companies embracing containers and Kubernetes for their hybrid infrastructures. It is powering customers across the world and across industries.

Industries such as automotive, financial services, hospitality, insurance, logistics, retail, travel, telecommunications, government agencies and more rely on OpenShift as their Kubernetes platform.

Customers like ANZ Bank, Banco Santander, Cathay Pacific, Copel Telecom, GE, Lufthansa Technik, Macquarie Bank, Miles and More, Paychex, Porsche Informatik, Sabre, Swisscom AG, Via Varejo, and X by Orange are among those embracing Red Hat OpenShift, including this year’s Red Hat Innovation Awards winners BP, Deutsche Bank, Emirates NBD, HCA Healthcare and Kohl’s.

Nearly 50 per cent of the top Fortune 100 companies are using Red Hat OpenShift2. Almost 30 per cent of the top Fortune Global 500 companies use OpenShift, it said.

As more companies transform their businesses with new value-creating applications, Linux containers and Kubernetes have been core technologies in the multi-billion dollar market for cloud-native application platforms.

Red Hat OpenShift has emerged as a leading open hybrid cloud platform to bring together these technologies, which enable and accelerate both enterprise developers and IT operations teams, it stated. – TradeArabia News Service
