ZURICH - —
Red Hat Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced that Swiss financial services provider SIX has deployed Red Hat Enterprise Linux as the primary operating system supporting its IT infrastructure modernisation. Key to its modernisation programme is its DevOps strategy, which will be supported by Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform and Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform.
The Red Hat solutions we have deployed are key to modernising our infrastructure and to implementing the DevOps strategy that will determine our digital future.
SIX operates an infrastructure for the Swiss financial sector and provides financial services for businesses around the world. SIX is setting out to modernise, consolidate and standardise its IT infrastructure so it can bring innovations to market much quicker, helping to generate more value for customers and the business. To do this, SIX is aiming to use new application architectures such as microservices and containers, to optimise its use of private cloud technologies, and to adopt a DevOps methodology to improve collaboration between its development and IT operations teams.
Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform is Red Hat’s enterprise-grade Kubernetes container application platform, the first and only container-centric, hybrid cloud solution based on the trusted backbone of the world’s leading enterprise Linux platform, Red Hat Enterprise Linux. It enables organisations like SIX to build, manage and scale cloud-native applications alongside legacy applications across hybrid and multi-cloud environments, in a stable, reliable and more secure manner. Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform provides tools and processes to support DevOps, including automated provisioning, management and scaling of applications.
SIX selected Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform to support its needs for a modern and agile platform to create cloud-native applications after conducting an evaluation of competitive solutions and proof of concept. SIX also selected Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform as its Java EE-based application runtime platform in order to deliver greater enterprise-grade security, performance and scalability across its environments.
Additionally, by using Red Hat Enterprise Linux as a standard operating system backbone for all of its infrastructure, SIX expects to gain performance, reliability and stability benefits whilst simultaneously helping to streamline administrative work and reduce costs. SIX will also use Red Hat Satellite as its management console to oversee its Red Hat Enterprise Linux footprint.
