Highlights from our partnership

Luftansa Technik builds cloud to optimize airline operations

Luftansa Technik wanted to help airlines use data to better organize and schedule maintenance events in order to improve costs, productivity, and the passenger experience. The company’s solution, AVIATAR, would support digital products for end users in development and operations. To create and operate AVIATAR, the company collaborated with Red Hat and Microsoft to create a hybrid cloud infrastructure based on enterprise open source software.

When we started moving towards the cloud, we needed some kind of a software-based connection between environments. Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform helped us put this software in our on-premise environment and in our Microsoft public cloud, to help them easily and securely communicate.


Red Hat and Microsoft simplify container management

We are expanding our partnership around hybrid cloud, container management, and developer productivity, empowering enterprise developers to run container-based applications across Microsoft Azure and traditional, on-site environments. As part of this collaboration, we will be introducing the first jointly managed OpenShift offering in the public cloud, combining the power of Red Hat OpenShift and Microsoft Azure.
