Fujitsu Announces Red Hat Certified Cloud and Solution Provider Accreditation and New Capability for Migration of Legacy UNIX Applications to Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Bangkok, June 10, 2015, Fujitsu today announces it has been accredited as a Red Hat Certified Cloud and Solution Provider in Thailand. This extension of Fujitsu’s ongoing technology collaboration with Red Hat means enterprise customers can now more easily migrate their legacy UNIX applications to Red Hat Enterprise Linux on Fujitsu’s mature cloud platform, which is hosted in Thai data centres.
Red Hat’s Certified Cloud and Solution Provider designation is awarded to Red Hat partners following rigorous validation by Red Hat. Each provider must meet testing and certification requirements to demonstrate that they can deliver a safe, scalable, supported and consistent environment for enterprise cloud deployments. The Red Hat Certified Cloud and Solution Provider program provides customers, ISVs (Independent Software Vendors), and partners with the confidence that Red Hat product experts have validated the solution so that implementations can begin with a solid foundation.
Mr. Lee Mun Choong Alfee, Country MS Business Unit, Director Managed Service Fujitsu Systems Business (Thailand) said, “We have a proven and highly successful long-term collaboration with Red Hat in this region. Red Hat Enterprise Linux is an effective platform for running applications in the cloud, with its broad base of developers and extensive ecosystem of certified applications that allow for flexibility, portability and scalability.”
Fujitsu and Red Hat have also developed a new capability to provide migration services from legacy UNIX systems to Red Hat Enterprise Linux on a number of platforms, including the Fujitsu Cloud. The collaboration enables enterprises to migrate some or all of their traditional UNIX applications from expensive UNIX-based hardware and operating systems and move to more readily available and lower cost x86 hardware architectures running Red Hat Enterprise Linux either in the client’s own data centre, the Fujitsu Thailand Cloud Service or Fujitsu’s data centres as a managed service.
“Red Hat is pleased to welcome Fujitsu Systems Business (Thailand) Ltd to our growing ecosystem of certified partners. The combination of proven Red Hat Enterprise Linux and enterprise-class support from Fujitsu’s Cloud Services offers Thai companies a clear path to achieving an open hybrid cloud. We look forward to working with Fujitsu to help Thai enterprises migrate their legacy UNIX environments to Red Hat’s cost-effective, modern and strongly supported operating platform.” – Damien Wong, Senior Director & General Manager, ASEAN
