RALEIGH, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Red Hat, Inc., the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today highlighted that more organizations are using Red Hat OpenShift as the foundation for building artificial intelligence (AI) and machine-learning (ML) data science workflows and AI-powered intelligent applications. OpenShift helps to provide agility, flexibility, portability and scalability across the hybrid cloud, from cloud infrastructure to edge computing deployments, a necessity for developing and deploying ML models and intelligent applications into production more quickly and without vendor lock-in.
As a production-proven enterprise container and Kubernetes platform, OpenShift delivers integrated DevOps capabilities for independent software vendors (ISVs) via Kubernetes Operators and NVIDIA GPU-powered infrastructure platforms. This combination can help organizations simplify the deployment and lifecycle management of AI/ML toolchains as well as support hybrid cloud infrastructure. With these enhancements, data scientists and software developers are empowered to better collaborate and innovate in the hybrid cloud rather than simply manage infrastructure resource requests.
Customer and ecosystem interest in AI/ML
The customer momentum seen by Red Hat validates the AI/ML findings from the recent 2020 Red Hat Global Customer Tech Outlook report. The report surveyed 876 Red Hat customers on their top IT priorities and found that 30% of respondents plan on using AI/ML over the next 12 months, ranking AI/ML as the top emerging technology workload consideration for companies surveyed in 2020.
