Nyhetssammanfattning Red Hat Summit – dag 1

Denna vecka pågår Red Hat Summit 2018 i San Francisco – årets mest nyhetsspäckade vecka på open source-området.

Första dagens nyhetssvep har tungt fokus på kundberättelser inom en rad olika områden – och visar hur containers och andra olika tillämpningar av open source driver innovation inom allt från matlagning via bank- och finanssektorn till flygtrafik. Under dag 1 offentliggjordes också årets vinnare av Red Hat Innovation Awards, där bland annat BBVA, Lufthansa Technik och UPS belönades.

De nya kundberättelserna visar på den allt snabbare rörelsen på marknaden mot att byta ut traditionell infrastruktur mot en öppen, hybridbaserad infrastruktur som kombinerar molnets flexibilitet och kostnadseffektivitet med säkerheten och kontrollen i on premise-lösningar och samtidigt eliminerar risken för inlåsning. Exempelvis har Red Hat idag fler än 150 kunder världen över som använder Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform för nästa generations lagringslösningar. Samtidigt använder lösningsleverantörer som Accenture, Atos och Wipro plattformen för att driva innovation och ta nya tjänster till marknaden snabbare.

Många av framträdandena på Summit livestreamas – länk till detta finns här.
