Singapore ISP MyRepublic modernizes IT architecture with open source cloud.

When MyRepublic decided to overhaul its legacy IT architecture, it went all out for open source. The internet service provider (ISP), based in Singapore, chose Red Hat OpenStack Platform for its Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), along with several other Red Hat solutions.  Now, the ISP’s IT architecture is more flexible and scalable. Thanks to the simpler, automated deployment, it also can deliver new services more quickly and generate more business. And it reduced hardware costs by 30% and cut year-on-year TCO by double-digit percentages. You can read more about MyRepublic’s use of Red Hat solutions in its new cloud-based platform in this case study, and hear about the implementation in this video.

Telcos + OpenStack = Innovation

Why do telcos and OpenStack go so well together? What opportunities can telcos realize through an OpenStack implementation? And how does NFV, cloud and 5G fit into the telco business model? Red Hat’s vice president of telecommunications, Darrell Jordan-Smith, joined Stu Miniman, senior analyst at Wikibon and John Troyer, ‎chief reckoner at TechReckoning, in “The Cube” at OpenStack Summit this past May to talk telco and OpenStack.

Exploring the hidden costs of using alternative unsupported community software

“When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price.”*

We all know about the benefits of open source software. Many in the development community within the financial services industry believe that the contributions of a community of developers providing extensive peer review help deliver a more secure, reliable and stable product. The ability to more rapidly deploy new versions provides fertile ground for innovation and collaboration. It is not surprising that open source has gained in popularity among the world’s leading financial institutions and that the developer community sees that the benefits can go beyond the Linux operating system. Virtually every component in the applications software stack may now be sourced from open source software. So, what is the value of an enterprise subscription to open source solutions?

Join us: Best practices for deploying NFV

Network functions virtualization (NFV) has revolutionized the way communications providers operate and deliver services. With a virtualized network infrastructure, service providers are able to move beyond traditional, proprietary hardware and achieve greater efficiency and agility, and reduce operational costs. However, the need to accommodate a wide range of potentially conflicting performance and reliability requirements on the same platform can be complex. Join us at the 2017 Red Hat Summit, May 2-4 in Boston, for a presentation on best practices for successfully deploying NFV.

Red Hat partners talk telco transformations during keynotes at Red Hat Summit 2017.

Telecommunications companies have reached a crossroad: fundamentally change their IT infrastructures or stay the course with legacy systems struggling to keep up with next-gen applications like the Internet of things (IoT) and big data, customers’ insatiable demand for mobility and bandwidth, and competitive threats from the new breed of communications service providers (CSPs) moving in. Telcos know this, and most are already digitally transforming their data centers and end-to-end networks. Join us at Red Hat Summit 2017 May 2-4 in Boston for four can’t-miss keynotes that spotlight the technologies, strategies and best practices at the center of these digital transformations.
