Swisscom joins Red Hat Cloud ecosystem

15 Feb 2012 Raleigh - Swisscom IT Services AG, a wholly owned subsidiary of Swisscom, Switzerland's leading telecommunications provider, has joined the Red Hat Cloud ecosystem as a Certified Cloud Provider partner, offering more choice and flexibility for open Cloud deployments.

In line with the launch of its public Cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) offering targeting enterprise-class customers primarily in the Swiss market, Swisscom has extended its ongoing technology collaboration with Red Hat. Swisscom has been a long-time user of Red Hat technologies, including Red Hat Enterprise Linux with virtualization, JBoss Enterprise Middleware and Red Hat Network Satellite systems management. Today, Swisscom IT Services extends this collaboration into the Cloud with the offering of Red Hat Enterprise Linux by the hour or year for virtual machine consumption on its IaaS Cloud.

"We're excited to expand our work with Red Hat into the Cloud today", stated Eduard Modalek, Head Product Portfolio Management at Swisscom IT Services. "We have worked closely to enable Red Hat solutions and support under our Cloud model and offering Red Hat Enterprise Linux to our IaaS customers today means that they have more options and greater flexibility with their Cloud deployments."

"The collaboration between Swisscom and Red Hat offers enterprise clients access to flexible pay-per-use services that are in demand for today's Cloud deployments", stated Scott Crenshaw, vice president and general manager, Cloud Business Unit at Red Hat. "Joining our ecosystem as a Certified Cloud Provider means that Swisscom has met our rigorous testing and certification requirements to deliver our customers solid technology and consistency in the Cloud. This is another step forward in Red Hat helping to enable enterprises with open Cloud technologies."
