January 29, 2021 

Red Hat Container Platform Specialist is a new partner initiative that Red Hat, a world leader in open source solutions, launched last week. IBA Group is one of the first Red Hat partners that achieved this competency.

Partnership

IBA Group has been a Red Hat partner since 2014. Initially, the company qualified as a Ready Solution Provider. In 2020, having attained the sales, customer implementation validation, accreditation, and enablement goals set out by Red Hat, IBA Group upgraded to the Advanced Solution Provider level with Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure specialization.

The year 2021 marked another milestone in the IBA Group’s cooperation with Red Hat. IBA Group confirmed its expertise in the OpenShift Container Platform and achieved the Red Hat’s Container Platform Specialist competency. This means that IBA Group is recognized as a technology leader and trusted advisor, working with Red Hat OpenShift, a leading container platform in the market.

OpenShift

OpenShift Container Platform, formerly known as OpenShift Enterprise, is a flagship of the OpenShift family of containerization software products developed by Red Hat. This on-premise platform as a service enables enterprises to manage container deployments and scale their applications using Kubernetes. Red Hat OpenShift is optimized to improve developer productivity and promote innovation.

Recently, Forrester named Red Hat a leader among eight multicloud container platform vendors in The Forrester Wave™: Multicloud Container Development Platforms Q3 2020 report →, based on strategy, offering and market presence.

Opportunities to Clients

The new IBA Group’s distinction gives additional opportunities to those of the IBA Group’s clients that seek to deploy applications quickly, become less siloed, and increase collaboration. The Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform reduces or eliminates system administration headaches related to building and deploying containerized applications, as well as provides enhanced functionality.

As a Red Hat Container Platform Specialist and an Advanced Solution Provider, IBA Group is a part of the vendor’s professional community, where members share their experience in implementing Red Hat technologies, communicate with product teams, and participate in discussions on new releases. Therefore, the company’s experts stay tuned to the latest developments and contribute to product improvement.
