Red Hat has been selected by VodafoneZiggo to provide a hybrid cloud platform based on Red Hat OpenShift. The platform will be designed to unify application infrastructure for VodafoneZiggo’s network and IT architectures, including its new standalone 5G core, targeting increased productivity and faster time to market.
VodafoneZiggo was looking for supplier-agnostic technology to enable its multi-vendor infrastructure, and recognized that Red Hat collaborates with diverse organizations across an extensive ecosystem to validate and certify the interoperability of cloud-native network functions (CNFs) with its open source solutions.
VodafoneZiggo already had a common platform in place for its 4G mobile core and several business applications, built on Red Hat OpenStack Platform. The company chose to continue this horizontal platform approach by selecting Red Hat OpenShift as its foundation for cloud-native applications across both the network and the business, with 5G Core as its first deployment.
With Red Hat OpenShift as its container platform, VodafoneZiggo will be able to scale out more rapidly and efficiently across multiple clouds and to the edge as business needs and market demands evolve. VodafoneZiggo is also well positioned to deliver a unified hybrid cloud experience across private and public clouds, with Red Hat Advanced Cluster Management for Kubernetes providing end-to-end multi-cloud management, visibility, and compliance enforcement for multiple clusters at scale.
