Red Hat, provider of open source solutions, will demonstrate its hybrid cloud technologies for ‘bare metal’, virtualisation, private cloud and public cloud deployments. The company will also address the growing Bring Your Own Device trend in the region by highlighting its recently launched Red Hat Mobile Application Platform.

“Our customers have pointed out that security and back-end integration are still major hurdles to mobile app development,” said ‎Lee Miles, general manager, Middle East and Africa at Red Hat. “The Red Hat Mobile Application Platform delivers vital mobile capabilities and secure, manageable integration with enterprise systems. It is the robust foundation upon which enterprises can build sustainable mobile strategies that drive business productivity, flexibility and scalability.”

The hybrid cloud remains a focal point for Red Hat at GITEX, and the company will highlight its solutions that help enterprises adopt cloud computing. This includes the Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform, Red Hat CloudForms and Red Hat Ceph Storage, which are cornerstones of Red Hat's Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solutions portfolio.

For organisations looking to efficiently develop, deploy and run applications in hybrid cloud environments, Red Hat will showcase its Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) portfolio consisting of OpenShift by Red Hat, Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio, and Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform.

Also featured at the show will be Red Hat Access Insights, an operations analytics service, which was unveiled earlier this year. The service enables proactive systems management for private and hybrid cloud environments.

Commenting on the company's 5th appearance at GITEX, Miles  said, “The Middle East IT industry is on a healthy growth curve as enterprises leverage technology to enable their businesses. As the region's largest ICT trade show, GITEX gives us direct exposure to some of the industry's most influential business decision makers. We intend to engage with these individuals to help them understand just how open source software is transforming everything from cloud and mobile to big data and the Internet of Things.”
