Wednesday, July 24, 2013

Partners: Red Hat

Location: Vienna, VA

Vienna, VA, July 24, 2013/ PRNewswire – Emergent, LLC, an award-winning small business and IT solutions provider, today announced its focus on enabling the use of Red Hat’s OpenShift Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solution for the Intelligence Community (IC). Utilizing Red Hat’s PaaS offering, Emergent delivered a streamlined solution focused on application delivery, scalability and control of the infrastructure.

OpenShift’s automated provisioning and systems management allows for growing load demands to be met and scaled quickly, and Emergent’s partnership with Red Hat has enabled the IC to adopt OpenShift PaaS on both a private cloud and a FedRAMP certified cloud for mission focused applications, therefore allowing for higher performance and lower cost of operations.

“Emergent’s OpenShift solution configured on a certified infrastructure can significantly improve our customers accessibility and scalability, while reducing the cost of operations,” states Daniel Climo, Red Hat Team Lead for Emergent. “Since OpenShift is based on the Red Hat Linux operating system, the use of SELinux provides customers with the mechanism for supporting access control security policies.”

OpenShift’s autoscaling cloud application platform allows developers to launch new ideas quickly while the platform automatically handles the provisioning, security and scalability functions required. Built on a stack composed completely of Red Hat technologies, OpenShift delivers the velocity, efficiency, and scalability of cloud computing with the strength and stability of enterprise-class technologies.
