The world's leading provider of open source solutions, today
announced that more than 1,000 customers are using Red Hat OpenShift Container
Platform, solidifying Red Hat as a hybrid cloud and enterprise Kubernetes leader. This
milestone comes as Red Hat announces the availability of Red Hat OpenShift 4, the next
generation of its trusted enterprise Kubernetes platform, to deliver cloud-like simplicity
with full-stack automated operations across the hybrid cloud.
Open source technology gives us the ability to deliver what our internal and external
customers need in a way that differentiates us from our competitors. Our development
teams using Red Hat OpenShift have, on average, three or four times more product
deployments, equating to more features launching to our end users faster.

Digital transformation powered by enterprise Kubernetes across the hybrid cloud
As more companies transform their businesses with new value-creating applications,
Linux containers and Kubernetes have been core technologies in the multi-billion dollar
market for cloud-native application platforms. Red Hat OpenShift has emerged as a
leading open hybrid cloud platform to bring together these technologies, which enable
and accelerate both enterprise developers and IT operations teams.
Some recent examples of how leading enterprises are benefitting from enterprise
Kubernetes from Red Hat include:
Lufthansa Technik: Lufthansa Technik, one of the world’s leading providers of
maintenance, repair, and overhaul services for commercial airlines, created a
digital platform to support digital products for its end users in development and
operations—helping them better predict events and, as a result, save time and
money. The solution AVIATAR includes Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform,
running on Microsoft Azure, to support the team’s DevOps and continuous
improvement approaches, as well as to build, deploy, run, and integrate new
infrastructure components. Red Hat OpenShift Container Storage provides
scalable storage for the platform and Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application
Platform (JBoss EAP) provides a back-end for Lufthansa Technik’s AVIATAR Java
Macquarie Bank: To transform its digital banking infrastructure, Macquarie
moved to a cloud-based solution using Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.
The company is using OpenShift to iteratively modernize legacy applications and
deploy microservices in containers to streamline and automate their lifecycles.
Porsche Informatik GmbH: The automobile industry is undergoing one of the
biggest transformations in its 100-plus year history. As a service provider, Porsche
Informatik’s answer to the digital transformation of a worldwide automotive
trade network is agility by design. It is using Red Hat OpenShift Container
Platform and Red Hat OpenShift Container Storage to orchestrate the end-
customer applications and support a portable development process. With
OpenShift, new applications that once took over a week are up and running after
just a few hours. With help from its Red Hat-based solution, the team’s goal is to
reduce time-to-market by 90% – from weeks to days.
X by Orange: X By Orange, a subsidiary of Orange Spain focused on business-to-
business (B2B) digital services, selected Red Hat as a core technology partner to
help create its software-defined strategy. Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform
helps it more quickly create and release new services and give it a "provider
agnostic" Kubernetes platform on top of multicloud infrastructure.
