Why the platform matters for containerised workloads

Watch recording from 18 febbraio 2020

A webinar exclusively for BMW Group

OpenStack at BMW Group has evolved over the last few years as the on-premise "Infrastructure-as-a-Service" cloud platform used for open source virtualization and containerization.

BMW Group’s current OpenStack provider, SUSE, has decided to cease production of new versions and to discontinue sales of their SUSE OpenStack Cloud product. Therefore BMW Group has asked Red Hat to demonstrate their OpenStack capabilities.

Red Hat is one of the top community members and open source contributors to the OpenStack project. In addition, Red Hat’s OpenShift Container Platform solution has been tightly integrated and collaboratively engineered to run on-top of Red Hat OpenStack Platform for on-premise use-cases. Using Red Hat platforms for both OpenStack-based virtualization and OpenShift-based containerization will maximize the benefits of the BMW Group on-premise cloud.

Join us to learn:

  • What Red Hat OpenStack Platform is, and what its benefits are

  • Why Red Hat OpenStack Platform is a great place to run OpenShift Container Platform

  • What we’re doing from a technical perspective to support the product integration

  • What the roadmap looks like going forward
