Red Hat, a significant player in the ever-evolving technology landscape has maintained its autonomy as an IBM subsidiary. Their robust portfolio rooted in open-source principles, and emphasis on training provide adaptable solutions for businesses seeking to transition to diverse cloud environments. Red Hat's Sales Lead, Laurent Hennico, sheds light on the operations and principles that define Red Hat Luxembourg.
Red Hat Luxembourg
« In recent years, our journey as a subsidiary of IBM has been marked by a unique balance. Despite our affiliation, Red Hat retains its complete autonomy in both management and operations. Our strength lies in our strategic partnerships, pivotal in the distribution of our cutting-edge technological solutions. We maintain close, dynamic collaborations with certified local “Premier partners” such as ITS4U, Fujitsu, Devoteam, and EBRC. These partners are instrumental in the implementation and sustained support of our solutions, providing the essential expertise and manpower for on-site installations and continuous monitoring throughout the entire lifecycle, from inception to full maturity.
Moreover, we go the extra mile to empower professionals with a high-quality training center of Devoteam, ensuring they have the knowledge and skills required to master our technologies. Our solutions are meticulously crafted for comprehensive portability, guaranteeing the essential flexibility to migrate seamlessly across diverse cloud environments like Azure, Google or Amazon... »
Modernizing IT and Embracing Hybrid Cloud
« Red Hat’s notable achievements can be largely attributed to its pioneering product, the Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) operating system. RHEL has emerged as a preferred solution for corporate entities and institutions seeking to manage their server and enterprise computing requirements. Over years of consistent success, it has now become one of our flagship offerings. Presently, the market is undergoing a notable transformation in its demands, necessitating a strategic realignment of our focus and investments. Additionally, businesses in Luxembourg encounter challenges when it comes to seamlessly and efficiently transporting their workloads. In response, we are reorienting our resources towards technologies of paramount relevance, notably the Red Hat OpenShift and Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform.
Nowadays, a multitude of monolithic applications continues to prevail. These applications are characterized by inherent design limitations that result from the programming languages and infrastructure used in their development. The current trend in modernization gravitates towards microservices and containers, facilitating secure workload migration and scalability. Enterprises must adhere to the latest regulatory standards, such as the Digital Operational Resilience Act (DORA), which mandates the establishment of backup solutions independent from singular cloud infrastructures. Consequently, adopting a hybrid cloud approach emerges as a great solution to avoid dependency from a hyperscaler.
Red Hat’s portfolio has been oriented towards modernizing IT to a hybrid cloud. Our 'Red Hat OpenShift' and 'Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform' solutions are poised to provide organizations with a smooth transition from traditional on-premise architectures to a contemporary technology ecosystem, offering streamlined methods for managing their workloads. Openshift liberates workloads from infrastructure constraints while the Ansible Automation Platform adds an automation layer for seamless transportation. Moreover, these solutions extend beyond hyperscalers’ cloud facilitating workloads migration to data centers such as EBRC and Luxconnect.
OpenShift and Ansible Automation Platform have a track record of years in the market, featuring continuous patch updates, added functionalities, and ongoing development to align with evolving customer requirements. Their robust maturity and stability provide a significant market advantage. »
The Open-Source Philosophy
« Red Hat Luxembourg comprises a dedicated team of professionals, including technical experts and administrative staff. Our foundation is rooted in the open-source philosophy, a core principle that distinguishes us in the IT world. Open source means that the software we develop is the result of a collaborative community effort, offering a unique model of innovation.
Our dedication to the open-source ethos drives us to build upon community-created software. We enrich these solutions with enterprise-level support, comprehensive training programs, and a reliable product lifecycle. This harmonious blend empowers organizations to harness the rapid innovation generated by the open-source community while benefiting from the stability and legal assurances inherent in an enterprise-grade solution. Our commitment to legal protection for all software purchasers underscores our commitment to trust and security.
One of our key strengths is that we provide access to these technologies at a manageable cost, making them accessible to organizations of various sizes. Whether it's a small-scale project or a large-scale initiative, we do not require massive upfront investments. Our solutions allow organizations to start small and scale up as their needs grow. Our diverse collaborations range from small and medium-sized enterprises seeking flexibility to major banks in Luxembourg that rely on us for robust platform support. »
