Delivering innovation and efficiency together

Not only is it vital to keep pace with innovation, but this has to be balanced against the need to embrace flexibility, keep data and applications secure, and find more efficient ways of working all the time.

Achieving and maintaining this balance for our customers is the cornerstone of our 15+ year partnership with Red Hat. As a long-standing Premier Partner, Red Hat helps us deliver on-premise, managed and hosted services across any platform.

Supporting customers with core-critical cloud infrastructures

Together, we’re able to migrate our customers onto Red Hat Enterprise Linux, which is fully certified on hundreds of clouds and with thousands of hardware and software vendors

This consistent, flexible, open-source operating system enables faster data delivery, and is instrumental in driving new innovations for the workloads of our customers. Through one centralised interface, customers can efficiently manage edge systems and connect all data and devices through their hybrid cloud infrastructures.

SCC’s expertise is helping to refresh, renew, maintain and grow Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and for our customers, it means they can run all of their mission-critical, heavy duty workloads across every application and platform.

Build applications and workloads once, and deploy them anywhere

Containerisation helps businesses build applications and workloads that can then be deployed on any platform. However, the variations between those platforms mean that they often need rebuilding when a migration takes place, which can heavily consume both time and resources.

The open-source container approach that Red Hat’s OpenShift platform provides solves those challenges, as applications and workloads can be built in a container once and then easily deployed to any platform. This added mobility gives our customers extra flexibility around where they host and run their activities, while also reducing the exit costs often incurred when moving applications from one platform to another.

Accelerating automation for fast, cost-effective service delivery

Expanding volumes of data and applications require increased resources to manage. With human IT skills still in very short supply, this can be extremely expensive to achieve, and so the most cost-effective and practical answer is automation.

Red Hat’s Ansible solution provides that all-important automation to our customers, by way of open-source tooling available on a subscription basis. As well as the use of enterprise-grade technology for automation and orchestration, SCC and Red Hat can collectively deliver all the support services needed to keep things running smoothly. This helps our customers reduce costs, relieve the admin burden on the in-house IT team, and improve service delivery for downstream customers.

Hear from Polly McCorrmick (SCC Software Partner Manager) and Luke Day (Red Hat Partner Manager) as they discuss how the partnership is evolving and how together they can customers succeed using Red Hat’s technology and SCC’s extensive knowledge and experience around the Hybrid Cloud.
