Why hybrid cloud?
A hybrid cloud delivers a consistent platform across bare metal, virtual, private, and public cloud environments. This unlocks a set of capabilities essential in today’s world, including speed, agility, and portability.
- Scale up or down without rebuilding apps
- Get more value from your IT investments
- Enhance stability and security
Whatever your IT challenge, Red Hat’s open source platforms and tools can help you meet it.
Future proof my infrastructure
You’ve invested heavily in infrastructure, applications, processes, and policies. Even though you’re being pressured to adopt new platforms and technologies, you can’t just throw out your existing assets. Balance new technologies and approaches with support and modernization efforts for critical existing systems.
Architect for any cloud
Prepare for the future while leveraging your existing infrastructure. Provide consistency across footprints, drive collaboration, use data to generate new business insights, and support security and compliance measures.
Run and manage applications anywhere
Enable innovation for developers and business leaders who want the latest and greatest tech, while delivering efficiency, built-in management, and enhanced security. You can support your organization’s drive for innovation with a Kubernetes-based container platform that runs across all your IT footprints.
Having that solid foundation of [Red Hat Enterprise Linux]—in the cloud, on virtualized, on bare metal, and the public cloud—allows customers to go anywhere they want, any cloud they want, any type of application.
How do you reduce flight delays in 100 days? Lufthansa Technik, the commercial airline industry’s largest maintenance provider, did it with hybrid cloud. With Red Hat, Lufthansa Technik built AVIATAR, a digital platform that helps airlines make data-informed scheduling and maintenance decisions.
Red Hat's approach to
The future of IT is hybrid, and it requires that different clouds work together.
Let's break them down.
Clouds, whether public or private, offer self-service developer capabilities as well as the elasticity and scalability that operations teams need to manage apps as demands change.
Even if you aren’t currently evaluating hybrid cloud, it can become a necessity for many organizations as they grow. For example, you might use on-premises infrastructure to store sensitive data, and public cloud services for application development, and a consistent platform running portable workloads enables these choices now, and in the future.
Open Hybrid Cloud
To fully enable the capability to adapt to change without costly rebuilding, your hybrid cloud should be built on a consistent foundation of open source code so that your teams can build and manage a full IT stack in a standard, unifying platform that works on all environments.
