BMW Group, the world’s leading premium manufacturer of automobiles and motorcycles, has deployed Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform to support its delivery of business applications and services.
“After the decomposition of traditional applications into micro-services running on containers, Red Hat OpenShift container platform enables the BMW Group to do point scaling to adjust loads to peaks and troughs in demand, and to deliver the continuous service that today’s consumers expect,” explains Red Hat.

Red Hat has done it again. The company reported fourth quarter revenues of $629 million, up 16 percent year-over-year. This translates to over $2.4 billion in annual revenues.
The key points I get from Red Hat’s success are:
- Keep ‘everything’ open source
- Contribute to key open source projects (it benefits you as you can also influence the direction of the project. The more you contribute, the more say you get)
- Take risks and continue to evolve, instead of playing it safe and sticking to legacy products that have been doing fine
- Bite off as much as you can chew; don’t enter so many areas just because that’s trendy or because everyone else is doing it.

To help Java developers manage the transition, Red Hat is happy to announce the availability of a Java container image for cloud native workloads. Red Hat now expands the availability of cloud native packaging models to all Java applications that rely on OpenJDK and Maven. This builds on the proven S2I technology that has been available for OpenShift applications for many years.

“Red Hat has helped enable the Windows container support at several levels, including laying foundational groundwork to have Windows nodes connected to the cluster and assisting in the prototyping of how Kubernetes concepts can be mapped to Windows containers,”

If a company wants to run Linux in the public cloud, and they’re not yet ready to go “fully native” in the cloud, they tend to run RHEL in both environments, Whitehurst detailed. Red Hat CFO Frank Calderoni then underlined this point: “The large customers that are…using the public cloud with us are also growing substantially their business on the private side, too.”
