The tech industry is bustling with innovative cloud vendors, but the cutting-edge nature of the industry creates unique problems:

  • Can your vendor evolve quickly enough to keep up with cloud computing’s advancement?
  • Can their innovation keep up with consumer demand?
  • Do they have an infrastructure stable enough to keep up with security threats and rising needs?
  • Can they interoperate with on-site storage?
  • Is their product line broad enough to keep costs down?

Amazon is leading the cloud war for excellent reasons, but hybrid services are still the only truly customizable way to satisfy all your needs. Red Hat made headlines for precisely that reason. Their partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS) manages deep integration between Amazon and OpenShift so that consumers can shift their data and applications between clouds without breaking a digital sweat. The alliance brings extra benefits to its users. Li9 Technology Solutions’ partnership with Red Hat comes with continuous integration and delivery with the power of AWS to manage your workload.

Scalability

2.5 quintillion bytes of data are created every day, so the Cloud is well-nigh useless as an enterprise tool if it lacks scalability. A growing family doesn’t buy a bachelor’s apartment for the same reason an evolving business doesn’t choose a diminutive cloud provider. Going directly to cloud behemoths doesn’t give you enough hybrid power or personalization, though, so strategic partnerships are the only way to fulfill every need.

Amazon has a huge array of services, from Aurora to Redshift, but it lacks tools for container adoption. Red Hat and Li9 have made it possible to integrate AWS and OpenShift from a single hybrid, achieving an incredible breadth of services. Regardless of where your apps are deployed, your cloud strategy can now evolve as freely as your needs.
