Digital transformation powered by enterprise Kubernetes across the
hybrid cloud

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.

Some recent examples of how leading enterprises are benefitting from
enterprise Kubernetes from Red Hat include:

  • Lufthansa
    : Lufthansa Technik, one of the world’s leading
    providers of maintenance, repair, and overhaul services for commercial
    airlines, created a digital platform to support digital products for
    its end users in development and operations—helping them better
    predict events and, as a result, save time and money. The solution
    AVIATAR includes Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, running on
    Microsoft Azure, to support the team’s DevOps and continuous
    improvement approaches, as well as to build, deploy, run, and
    integrate new infrastructure components. Red Hat OpenShift Container
    Storage provides scalable storage for the platform and Red Hat JBoss
    Enterprise Application Platform (JBoss EAP) provides a back-end for
    Lufthansa Technik’s AVIATAR Java applications.
  • Macquarie
    : To transform its digital banking infrastructure,
    Macquarie moved to a cloud-based solution using Red Hat
    OpenShift Container Platform. The company is using OpenShift to
    iteratively modernize legacy applications and deploy microservices in
    containers to streamline and automate their lifecycles.
  • Porsche
    Informatik GmbH
    : The automobile industry is undergoing
    one of the biggest transformations in its 100-plus year history. As a
    service provider, Porsche Informatik’s answer to the digital
    transformation of a worldwide automotive trade network is agility by
    design. It is using Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform and Red Hat
    OpenShift Container Storage to orchestrate the end-customer
    applications and support a portable development process. With
    OpenShift, new applications that once took over a week are up and
    running after just a few hours. With help from its Red Hat-based
    solution, the team’s goal is to reduce time-to-market by 90% – from
    weeks to days.
  • X
    by Orange
    : X By Orange, a subsidiary of Orange Spain
    focused on business-to-business (B2B) digital services, selected Red
    Hat as a core technology partner to help create its software-defined
    strategy. Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform helps it more quickly
    create and release new services and give it a “provider agnostic”
    Kubernetes platform on top of multicloud infrastructure.

Red Hat OpenShift is a leading enterprise Kubernetes platform, with
automated operations to manage hybrid cloud and multicloud deployments,
optimized for developer productivity and frictionless innovation. Red
Hat OpenShift runs on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, the most deployed
