Redington India announced a collaboration with Red Hat to distribute the full range of Red Hat solutions in India, including Red Hat Cloud Suite, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Red Hat Ansible Automation and Red Hat JBoss Middleware.
In today’s world of the digital era, enterprises are increasingly turning to open source to accelerate their digital transformation efforts. They realise the benefits of building and collaborating on open source rather than developing new software from the ground up. Today it is at the core of many emerging technologies including cloud computing, artificial intelligence, blockchain and machine learning.
With this collaboration, Redington will identify and appoint regional system integrators, ISVs and born in the cloud partners to further expand and develop open source partner ecosystem in India. Redington’s partners will be able to offer their customers Red Hat-supported open source technology for deploying their workloads on the public, private and hybrid platforms through the container platform and while automating service, application and infrastructure provisioning and management, through a subscription-based model that allows them the ability to scale out based on their business requirements.
Commenting on the collaboration, Neeraj Bhatia, Director, Commercial and Partner Sales, Red Hat India and South Asia said that in today’s digital era, open source is one of the only enterprise software technology platforms, which provide true choice and combined technology to encompass the ever-evolving digital economy.
He further added that their business partners play an important role in educating customers and guiding them through this transformation to be a truly digital era business. The collaboration with Redington will enable them to introduce the benefits of Red Hat offerings to a broader range of customers, especially in the remote markets of the country.
R Venkatesh, Executive Vice President at Redington said, “Enterprises around the world rely on Red Hat to deliver solutions that meet their business needs with regards to performance and security features. At Redington, it is our endeavour to provide the best-in-class solution to our customers. We are very pleased to have the opportunity to represent Red Hat’s exceptional product line.”
