Accelerating Open Hybrid Cloud Technology Development

Date: Oct 25, 2022

The development of cloud computing has a history of decades. With the progress and development of technology, cloud technology has gradually penetrated into all walks of life, and it is no longer a new thing for enterprises to go to the cloud. According to the "2020-2026 China Cloud Computing Industry Market According to the data from the Analysis, Forecast and Strategic Consulting Research Report: In 2018, the global public cloud market represented by IaaS, PaaS and SaaS reached US$136.3 billion, with a growth rate of 23.01%. The average growth rate of the market in the next few years will be around 20%, and the market size is expected to exceed $270 billion by 2022.

Obviously, when "going to the cloud" has become the mainstream vocabulary of enterprises in all walks of life, the content of our discussion is by no means limited to what cloud is and what advantages it has, but focuses on how to truly realize the vision of cloud. During this period, "hybrid cloud" has become the focus of enterprise attention, and a well-designed hybrid cloud can help enterprises take full advantage of the scalability and cost-saving advantages of public cloud, while simultaneously combining private cloud data source monitoring, security and controllability characteristics.

It is worth emphasizing that, as an open cloud environment that realizes flexibility, convenience and innovation, open hybrid cloud has become the only way for enterprises, and it is also a future trend. In this regard, Red Hat President and CEO Paul Cormier said: "Open hybrid cloud has been Red Hat's vision for many years, and more and more enterprises are actively moving towards this goal."



Red Hat believes that more than ever, IT technology needs to evolve to meet the ever-increasing demand for always-on digital services and anytime, anywhere connectivity. In order to maintain operational stability while meeting user demands for faster and broader access to essential applications and services, almost all industries, including healthcare, logistics, retail, financial services, government, education, etc., are now in Make adjustments at any time.

Red Hat's leadership in the open source community is earned by hard work every day, not by marketing needs. Both Red Hat and Google were early contributors to Kubernetes, and Red Hat remains the second-largest enterprise contributor to Kubernetes today. Red Hat is actively advancing the development of key technologies in Kubernetes and related communities that continue to drive IT forward across industries.

Red Hat is the first to launch an enterprise Kubernetes platform, Red Hat OpenShift, which allows customers to continue to use existing traditional applications while embracing cloud native. Red Hat OpenShift is therefore trusted by customers in various industries. To further remove the barriers between traditional and cloud-native applications, Red Hat has introduced additional new capabilities to support new workloads on OpenShift and meet all customer needs.

Unified management of traditional and cloud-native applications from core to edge

"Open Hybrid Cloud" is so magical, how can enterprises get on this express train? The answer lies in the "2020 Red Hat Global Summit", at the summit, Red Hat announced a series of new products to help enterprises of different sizes and industries optimize, expand and protect IT operations in response to the changing global situation. At this summit, Red Hat released the following new products:

Patching, upgrades, remediation and disaster recovery are all managed and supported by Microsoft and Red Hat with best-in-class 24/7 proactive management and support.
More than magic, spy on the technology behind the product

The truth behind the product is often the mastery of the core technology. For Red Hat, behind the complete set of open hybrid cloud solutions, there needs to be a complete software, hardware and service support system, as well as Red Hat's deep expertise in integrating and operating open innovation. In addition, all Red Hat software products offer longer enterprise-class life cycles, which also gives customers greater confidence in using Red Hat products to support their business.

Red Hat's innovative software is compatible with a variety of hybrid and multi-cloud environments and is not tied to a single hardware vendor or cloud service provider. we support:

Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform also automates time-consuming manual tasks to help IT teams better meet customer and end-user needs during off-hours, addressing the complexities of increased network demands and expanding infrastructure.

How does Red Hat help enterprises to survive the epidemic?

During the epidemic, many companies are struggling to survive, and how to find opportunities in crisis has become their first consideration. When talking about how Red Hat has dealt with this special period, Paul Cormier admitted that the epidemic has affected all walks of life. Red Hat developers use remote work and are very familiar with this method, so it does not have much impact on work; For customers, the impact on sales will be greater, and many customers cannot go to the data center to provide better services to end users. In response, Red Hat needs to help customers keep their data centers up and running. On top of that, this crisis has required many organizations to expand capacity and make changes to accommodate remote workers and other surges in demand like never before. Along the way, Red Hat has heard from customers across industries that "automation" has become a lifesaver for IT teams.

Matt Hicks, senior vice president of technical engineering at Red Hat, said: "Whether it is expanding from its own data center to the public cloud, or because of the need to cut expenses and reduce the investment in the public cloud part due to the epidemic, if enterprises have the support of Red Hat's open hybrid cloud architecture, application The transfer will be very easy and visible, the flexibility of the infrastructure is very important.”

Enterprises can meet the opportunities and challenges of the digital age through the products and technologies provided by Red Hat. What's more, with the ever-increasing demand for network connectivity, Red Hat training and certifications are also available to IT teams looking to learn more skills quickly. Whether it's the fundamentals of enterprise Kubernetes or an advanced telecommunications architecture certification, Red Hat can help IT professionals learn all levels of expertise and experience to better meet the challenges posed by the growing importance of networking.
