Red Hat is highlighting the “cornerstones” of its Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solutions portfolio, including the OpenStack Platform, CloudForms, and Ceph Storage from its CLD-28 stand in Hall 6.
Red Hat is also showcasing its container and application development portfolio consisting of the OpenShift Container Portfolio, JBoss Developer Studio, and JBoss Enterprise Application Platform.
“Making true digital transformation is difficult unless organisations in the Middle East embrace central themes such as software-defined everything, hyperscale, containers and hybrid cloud,” said Lee Miles, General Manager Middle East and Africa, Red Hat. “Proprietary technology will no longer exist as a viable innovation model. Red Hat, the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, will participate in GITEX Technology Week where its focus will be on demonstrating how the company’s open source technologies are helping accelerate business transformation by enabling all these trends.”
Miles went on to highlight how new agile cloud deployments can transform a company’s operations. “Hybrid cloud remains a focal point for Red Hat at GITEX,” he said. “Hybrid clouds deliver strategic advantages to the business by redirecting resources from lights-on to innovation. They enable faster business service development and deployment and help organizations respond more quickly to opportunities and threats. Hybrid clouds reduce risk by allowing ongoing compliance and runtime management. For this, interoperability is key and this means taking a hybrid approach to managing a cloud, as enabled by open source software, open standards, open application programming interfaces (APIs), and other aspects of openness. Red Hat’s entire cloud portfolio is built around this open hybrid cloud management approach.”
He also offered a positive forecast for tech industry in the Middle East. “The Middle East IT industry is on a healthy growth curve as enterprises leverage technology to enable their businesses. As the region’s largest ICT trade show, GITEX gives us direct exposure to some of the industry’s most influential business decision makers.”
