Red Hat, Inc. Awards & Publications

ABI Research named Red Hat a Leader in its 5G Cloud-Native Platforms: Kubernetes, Containers, and CaaS Layer Competitive Ranking. Red Hat’s OpenShift Container Platform is an industry standard. To understand it as an independent solution, it must be viewed within the broader OpenShift ecosystem. The foundation of Red Hat prepackages Linux OS (CoreOS, Enterprise, or custom) with the OpenShift Kubernetes Engine for cluster services. From this foundation, the Container Platform contributes out-of-box tight integration of Kubernetes with features for rich metrics, self-healing, security, and CI/CD processes that exceed standard Kubernetes.

ABI Research recognized Red Hat as a Top Implementer in its Competitive Ranking of 5G Cloud-Native Platforms: Kubernetes, Containers, and CaaS Layer. The commercial openness of Red Hat OpenShift is a result of its technical openness and versatility. OpenShift is a consolidated single-platform solution suited to orchestrating containers E2E. The platform supports private and hybrid deployments, but not full-public cloud. This tracks with current CSP demand, as a majority are indisposed to deploying a core network in a fully public cloud.

Red Hat was named a Leader in ABI Research's 5G Telco Cloud-Native Platforms competitive rankings due to its ability to offer a solution packing scalability and flexibility for CSPs, as well as having an open and diverse ecosystem of partners that allows CSPs to build “best-of-breed” systems. Furthermore, Red Hat is increasingly innovating its telco-grade capabilities and have proven to be able to support the millimeter-type latencies required at the telco edge. V

Red Hat was named the top implementer in the 5G Telco Cloud-Native Platforms competitive ranking, offering both Red Hat OpenStack and Red Hat OpenShift for CSPs, with Red Hat OpenStack revolving around VM deployments, and Red Hat OpenShift revolving around container deployment and management, with VMs deployment on Red Hat OpenShift being possible with Red Hat OpenShift virtualization based on KubeVirt.
