Organizations Around the Globe Turn to Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform as Enterprise Kubernetes Platform of Choice

Red Hat, Inc. announced that Follett School Solutions, SIX Group, ZTE Corporation, and Elo are transforming their IT infrastructure and embracing DevOps methodologies by adopting Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform as their enterprise Kubernetes solution of choice. These organizations, spanning each region, are representative of how customers around the world are embracing Red Hat OpenShift, the industry’s most comprehensive Kubernetes platform.

Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform unites developers and IT operations on a single platform to build, deploy, and manage applications consistently across hybrid cloud infrastructures. This helps businesses achieve greater value by delivering modern and traditional applications with shorter development cycles and increased efficiencies. The platform is built on open source innovation and industry standards, including Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Kubernetes, and is trusted by many companies around the world.

Organizations taking advantage of Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform and Red Hat’s broad portfolio of container and Kubernetes-based solutions to more rapidly create, host, and scale applications across hybrid and multi-cloud environments include:


  • ZTE Corporation is a leading global provider of integrated communications solutions, including voice, data, multimedia, and wireless broadband. To help network operators and enterprise clients in more than 160 countries navigate the ever-changing communications industry, ZTE is building an integrated Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering that can adapt to different integrated communications technology (ICT) scenarios. Key to the foundation of this PaaS offering is ZTE’s collaboration with Red Hat, combining ZTE's experience in network functions virtualization (NFV) with Red Hat's experience in IT and the open source community. Together, ZTE and Red Hat are working to promote development in upstream communities such as Kubernetes, OpenShift and OpenStack, and eliminating the gap between upstream communities and NFV scenarios, ZTE can better prepare for industry changes—particularly the shift to the new 5G telecommunications standard—as well as take advantage of a more flexible technology and a collaborative DevOps approach to build and deploy products faster.
