Red Hat and Cisco Opens New CoE in Gurgaon

This is among new initiatives to address cloud opportunities and drive local innovation with open source technology

IDC estimated in 2014 that the size of the worldwide cloud systems management software market in 2018 stands at US$5.8 billion. With this in mind, Red Hat and Cisco have announced a new Center of Excellence in Gurgaon, India, to provide customers and partners with an opportunity to review their cloud frameworks and experience how they can deliver cloud innovation within their organizations.

Red Hat will be showcasing technology solutions on Cisco platforms, which include OpenShift by Red Hat, Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform, and Red Hat CloudForms, designed to serve as the foundation for building OpenStack-powered clouds for advanced cloud users, such as telecommunications companies, Internet service providers (ISPs), and public cloud hosting providers.

Dirk-Peter van Leeuwen, SVP and GM, Red Hat Asia Pacific, said, “We hope that with the opening of the Center of Excellence, more IT professionals, students and communities can participate in open source development and be part of creating de facto multi-vendor standardization to build modern data centers of the future.”

“The new CoE is a demonstration of our commitment to help customers address today’s complex technology and business climate and will allow us to jointly demonstrate and deploy innovative, high performance Cloud infrastructure for the local market,” said Rajesh Rege, director and country head (Datacenter & Cloud Business Entity), Cisco India / SAARC.
