Red Hat sees stronger momentum in ASEAN for its container application platform

Ranging from the telecommunications and financial services industries, organizations in ASEAN are deploying Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform to enable their developers to more quickly develop, host, and scale applications in cloud environments, according to Red Hat, Inc.

Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform is a container-centric, hybrid cloud solution built from Linux containers, Kubernetes, Project Atomic and OpenShift Origin upstream projects based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux. 

In the ASEAN region, Red Hat has seen a stronger momentum for its container application platform, highlighted by several recent Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform deployments in markets like Singapore and Indonesia, including: Bank Tabungan Pensiunan Negara (BTPN) (Indonesia); CrimsonLogic (Singapore); Federal International Finance (Indonesia); Rutledge Global (Singapore) and XL Axiata (Indonesia).

“Our key strategic initiative is to transform ourselves to become a customer-centric digital bank, putting our customers at the center of what we do,” says Karim Siregar, IT director, Bank BTPN.

“As part of this journey a complete overhaul of the IT process and infrastructure is underway. To achieve this, we needed to build a new fully- automated and robust, end-to-end development pipeline. After thorough consideration, Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform was the logical choice for us because of its capabilities, features and performance. On top of that, during the implementation, Red Hat’s support was superb and showed commendable commitment.”

“CrimsonLogic’s next generation of products and solutions are designed and built for the cloud, which means we need to have the ability to scale rapidly in a controlled manner,” says Nicholas Wee, chief architect, Product Group & Architect Office, CrimsonLogic. “Our platform of choice needs to show reliability in supporting the use of Linux containers while providing interoperability between different technology stacks, such as Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS). We are pleased that Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform has proved itself capable of handling these requirements.”

A 2016 IDC study on the The Business Value of Red Hat OpenShift, sponsored by Red Hat, found that OpenShift enables customers to respond to market requirements faster by delivering business-critical, microservices-based applications with DevOps processes. These benefits include 66% faster application delivery times, $1.29 million average annual benefits per 100 application developers per year, and 531% average ROI over five years.
