Red Hat Helps Unlock the Benefits of Hybrid Cloud for Australian Enterprises with Upcoming Event Series

Events in Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney to highlight new enterprise open source advancements aimed at accelerating innovation across the hybrid cloud


Red Hat, Inc., the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced the Red Hat Tech Talk: Hybrid Cloud Series, an event for open hybrid cloud strategists and practitioners, is coming to Australia. The event series kicked-off in June 2019, covering 11 countries in the Asia-Pacific region and will now be coming to four cities in Australia - Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney.

We are excited to bring the Red Hat Tech Talk: Hybrid Cloud Series to Australia. We have seen enterprises that embrace public cloud are also building private clouds.

Max McLarenregional vice president and general manager, Red Hat ANZ

During the event series, attendees will learn how to accelerate and architect a hybrid cloud and cloud-native application strategy designed to speed innovation and give a competitive edge. According to IDC1, 70 percent of customers already deploy multicloud environments and 64 percent of applications in a typical IT portfolio today are based in a cloud environment, whether public or private. 

Red Hat will also share its open hybrid cloud strategy and feature the recently launched Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 and Red Hat OpenShift 4.Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 forms the foundation for Red Hat’s open hybrid cloud portfolio and is built to support workloads and operations that stretch from enterprise datacenters to multiple public clouds. This year, the software and applications running on Red Hat Enterprise Linux will touch $10 trillion of global business revenue, as estimated by IDC in a report sponsored by Red Hat on the economic impact of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Red Hat OpenShift 4 is the next generation of Red Hat’s trusted enterprise Kubernetes platform, reengineered to address the complex realities of container orchestration in production systems.
