Kaloom And Red Hat Collaborate

Kaloom extends collaboration with Red Hat Inc to create a unified edge solution for edge sites

United States: Kaloom, a growing leader in edge data center networking software solutions, has extended its collaboration with Red Hat Inc, a global leader in open source solutions, for creating a unified edge solution which will be used for networking, storage and computing of 5G edge cloud use cases.

Earlier, these two companies had collaborated to deliver a virtual central office solution for multivendor deployment. However, this time ‘Cloud Edge Fabric’ of Kaloom will be integrated with Red Hat’s ‘OpenShift’ to boost time to market of new services and simplify complex next generation networks, while optimizing the cost of edge infrastructure. The jointly developed solution will improve the overall network efficiency and support the hybrid 5G and 4G infrastructures.

CTO at Kaloom stated that, “We are excited to announce our jointly developed solution with Red Hat which solidifies the Kaloom Cloud Edge Fabric for edge data centers based on open networking principles with Red Hat OpenShift as the basis of a unified solution for network, compute and storage.”

CTO at Red Hat stated that, “We are pleased to work with Kaloom to announce a solution designed to deliver production-ready Linux containers and Kubernetes to service providers with Red Hat OpenShift, specifically for edge computing. Our extended collaboration in open source communities shows our shared commitment in moving networking capabilities in cloud native technologies towards an automated, unified approach based on open standards.”

According to TechSci Research, acquisition and collaboration have always been Red Hat’s key growth strategies. In 2019 also, the company had collaborated with Kaloom and in 2020, it partnered with Intel to enhance its 5G and edge computing capabilities. Partnering with companies will help Red Hat to develop high performance, scalable and low latency solutions, while reducing the cost and improving the throughput and user experience.
