The hybrid Cloud products will enable customers to have access to a wider variety of open source-based technologies that enable efficient transfer of workloads between the public and private Cloud. The mission-critical support will optimize operational and maintenance costs for customer systems. Future container technology development will increase availability and stability in customer environments. In addition, future combinations of jointly developed technologies will work to give customers swift access to open source technology that both companies are rapidly developing.
