ASEAN Enterprises Accelerate Digital Transformation Initiatives With Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform

Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, announced that enterprises in the ASEAN region have adopted Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform to enable faster application delivery. Ranging from the telecommunications and financial services industries, organizations in ASEAN are deploying Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform to enable their developers to more quickly develop, host, and scale applications in cloud environments.

Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform is the first and only container-centric, hybrid cloud solution built from Linux containers, Kubernetes, Project Atomic and OpenShift Origin upstream projects based on the trusted backbone of the world’s leading enterprise Linux platform, Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform provides a more secure, stable platform for container-based deployments without sacrificing current IT investments, allowing for mission-critical, traditional applications to coexist alongside new, cloud-native and container-based applications.

 

  • In the ASEAN region, Red Hat has seen a stronger momentum for its container application platform, highlighted by several recent Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform deployments in markets like Singapore and Indonesia, including: Bank Tabungan Pensiunan Negara (BTPN) (Indonesia); CrimsonLogic (Singapore); Federal International Finance (Indonesia); Rutledge Global (Singapore) and XL Axiata (Indonesia).

Affirming its innovation in container-based and cloud-native application development, Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform received the 2017 Cloud Technical Breakthrough award in February 2017.

A 2016 IDC study on The Business Value of Red Hat OpenShift[1], sponsored by Red Hat, found that OpenShift enables customers to respond to market requirements faster by delivering business-critical, microservices-based applications with DevOps processes. These benefits include 66% faster application delivery times, $1.29 million (approx. RM5.6 million) average annual benefits per 100 application developers per year, and 531% average ROI over five years.
