Red Hat to showcase Iaas, hybrid cloud at Gitex 2016
Red Hat, a provider of open source solutions, will participate in Gitex Technology Week 2016, where it will demonstrate how the company’s open source technologies are helping accelerate business transformation by enabling all these trends.
The company will highlight the cornerstones of its Infrastructure-as-a-service solutions portfolio, including Red Hat OpenStack Platform, Red Hat CloudForms, and Ceph Storage. Red Hat will also showcase its container and application development portfolio consisting of OpenShift Container Portfolio, JBoss Developer Studio and JBoss Enterprise Application Platform.
Hybrid cloud will remain a focal point for Red Hat at Gitex 2016. Hybrid clouds enable faster business service development and deployment and help organisations respond 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, and other aspects of openness. Red Hat’s entire cloud portfolio is built around this open hybrid cloud management approach.
Another key focus at Gitex 2016 will be on training, certifications and academies. Red Hat executives are keen to spread awareness about Red Hat Academy, an open source education programme that provides turnkey curriculum materials for educational programmes in high schools and institutions of higher education worldwide. Red Hat Training helps students master Red Hat technologies with the company’s lab intensive training. There are various types of training available including classroom, virtual, video classroom, Red Hat online training and on-site team training.
Visitors will get an opportunity to interact with Lee Miles, General Manager, Middle East and Africa at Red Hat and other senior company executives, to learn more about the technologies on display at Gitex 2016.
