Gain efficiencies with certified partner solutions

Build, deploy, and scale applications

Creating innovative digital experiences for customers, partners, and employees at the pace they demand requires shifting to a culture of organizational agility, with faster and more flexible app development and delivery models. Red Hat works closely with our ecosystem partners to test, certify, integrate, and optimize the technologies you need to quickly build, deploy, scale, and efficiently manage applications.

Why an app development ecosystem is important

User demand for new functions grows faster than your development processes can meet. You need a platform, methods, application services, and tools that can keep up without leaving behind the existing apps that your customers depend on. Adopting containers and a cloud-native approach to applications can help you.

With cloud-native applications, development languages or frameworks can be tailored to the specific business application need. To manage the resulting increase in complexity and application diversity, you need a container-based application platform that supports the right mix of frameworks, languages, and architectures to support cloud-native development.

The value of the Red Hat partner ecosystem

Kubernetes is the leading container orchestration platform, but can be extremely time consuming to manage. While Kubernetes does a lot, users still need to integrate other components like networking, ingress and load balancing, storage, monitoring, logging, developer tools, and more. 

Red Hat offers platforms that include functionality to let most organizations begin working with containerized applications as soon as their cluster is up and running. However, no one company can provide industry-leading solutions for every aspect of running in production. Red Hat relies on its partner ecosystem to provide creative solutions to fill these gaps.

Continuous integration

Continuous integration (CI) systems are build systems that watch source control repositories for changes, run applicable tests, and automatically apply the changes to the latest version of the application.

Continuous delivery and deployment

Continuous delivery (CD) and deployment tools and technologies reduce the risk of software releases and build an environment for experimentation. They facilitate continuous delivery with zero downtime.
