In addition to delivering big data analytics and improved controls for large scale data, the offering also boasts easier integration of SAP Vora and SAP Hana, as well as enhanced support for agile development around Big Data use cases.
Sean Dowd, vice president and chief architect, Avalon Consulting, LLC, said: "Our customers want the insights provided to them by big data analysis, but they also need a scalable, flexible infrastructure upon which to efficiently run these extreme workloads.
He added: "The Kubernetes foundation provided by Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform delivers the benefits of container orchestration coupled with enterprise-grade support and, paired with SAP Vora, helping these organisations to extract valuable information from large data in near real-time to better assess new opportunities and refine existing processes."
