The new open hybrid multi-cloud approach will allow Telefonica Tech to strengthen and differentiate its value proposition and provide more flexibility to its customers
Telefónica Tech signed a global strategic agreement with Red Hat and IBM to co-create and develop new multi-cloud enterprise solutions and services in their markets through the Telefónica Red Hat OpenShift Service (TROS) platform, a new cloud service utilising industry-leading technologies to help companies modernise their cloud applications and drive their digital transformation through the use of containers.
TROS is the multi-cloud proposal of containers that until now, Telefónica Tech offered under the name ‘Cloud Garden’ in its cloud on ‘Virtual Data Center’, VDC, and that is currently evolving, allowing its deployment also on the infrastructures of the hyperscalers. This makes it easier for customers to migrate workloads between different clouds and different locations (including Edge locations). In addition, Telefónica’s connectivity facilitates hybridisation with the private Red Hat OpenShift environments that customers may already have in their infrastructures.
“This strategic agreement allows us to strengthen our differential multi-cloud offer by integrating world-class technologies from Red Hat and IBM and consolidate our position as a leading partner for the digital transformation of businesses. We continue to evolve our ecosystem of alliances to enhance the digital capabilities of our professionals and to include in our portfolio the most innovative proposals in the market, fundamental aspects to continue offering the best service to our customers,” said María Jesús Almazor, CEO of Cybersecurity and Cloud, Telefónica Tech.
This new, open hybrid, the multi-cloud approach will allow Telefonica Tech to strengthen and differentiate its value proposition and provide more flexibility to its customers in their digital transformation and application modernisation in the markets where Telefónica Tech is present.
The complementary nature of cloud technologies integrated into TROS will enable Telefónica Tech, Red Hat and IBM to jointly define innovative use cases and provide high-value-added professional services to customers to help them make the process more efficient, cost-effective and cost-optimal.
The strategic agreement also enables Telefónica Tech to develop additional services on TROS based on Red Hat technologies and IBM Cloud Paks so that customers can accelerate their transformation to cloud-native applications, enabling a more consistent user experience both in their cloud and on the hyperscalers.
