Samsung SDS joined hands with global open source solution provider Red Hat and IBM to strengthen the competitiveness of its cloud business.
Through this collaboration, Samsung SDS will offer Red Hat OpenShift on Samsung Cloud Platform (SCP).
Moreover, Samsung SDS signed a business agreement with IBM and Red Hat with regard to expanding joint sales and technological support between the companies, and with this, IBM’s software applications will be available for use in OpenShift offered on SCP.
Red Hat OpenShift is a Kubernetes*-based platform that enables swift development, deployment, and operation of business applications in various cloud environments.
* Kubernetes: an open-source platform that supports quick and easy deployment and scaling of containerized* applications and their automated management
*Containerization: a technology that bundles up all the components needed to run an application so that they can be used like a separate server
This collaboration will allow customers using SCP to operate their corporate systems faster and more reliably through OpenShift. Moreover, it will facilitate the setup of a private cloud environment customized for customers in finance and public sectors that require a high level of security.
