E-mail Print PDF

Red Hat announces the OpenShift Dedicated container management service is now available on Google Cloud Platform (GCP)-- providing means for enterprises to build, launch and manage applications using Red Hat technology on the Google cloud.

ContainersA deal between the two companies sees Red Hat act as service provider, support customers managing OpenShift Dedicated on GCP. Meanwhile Google helps enterprises augment and build on OpenShift applications with a "broad and growing" cloud service portfolio. Customers get support for VPN and Google Virtual Private Cloud to access container applications on the cloud, as well as access to a container-optimised version of the JBoss Middleware.

"Customers consistently tell us that they are looking for open solutions that will enable them to use both public and private infrastructure-- they want choice. Red Hat has been an essential partner in making Kubernetes available to enterprises looking for the support and flexibility to manage a hybrid cloud," Google says. "We are deeply committed to working with partners like Red Hat to help our customers operate in a digital world.”

The EMEA Q3 2016 external storage market remains soft, IDC reports-- revenues are down by -5.1% Y-o-Y to $1.49 billion, as "huge growth" in the flash segment fails to offset falling traditional HDD-only arrays.

In fact, all-flash systems see 76.4% Y-o-Y growth, while hybrid flash arrays are up by 3.5%. However HDD-only array revenues are down by 33.6 Y-o-Y, heavily affecting total EMEA market performance.

"On the bright side, the AFA segment kept very strong momentum in the region, almost doubling its shares compared to the same period a year ago, further improving workload consolidation."
