Red Hat and Dell announced that Singapore’s Yale-NUS College has created a hybrid cloud based on Red Hat and Dell solutions.

The hybrid cloud platform gives researchers, students and administrators at the college to access to automated, self-service processes for server requests and enable faster deployment.

“We needed to be able to acquire advance capability without heavy capital expenditure and Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure on Dell solutions presented a solution that could easily integrate public infrastructure into our own,” said Darwin Gosal, senior manager, IT Services, Office of Educational Resources and Technology, Yale-NUS College.

Yale-NUS College was established in 2011 as collaboration between Yale University and the National University of Singapore.

The college required a flexible solution that would help them to meet demands for everything from learning, teaching and administrative purposes.

To address these challenges, Yale-NUS College created a software-defined datacenter and hybrid cloud based on a co-engineered Red Hat and Dell OpenStack cloud solution.

Separately, Red Hat said FICO, the predictive analytics and decision management software company, has deployed Red Hat software.

The implementation includes Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform, Red Hat CloudForms, and Red Hat Ceph Storage, as the basis of its cloud infrastructure.

Red Hat said its offerings have helped FICO to cut marketing time by 50 percent and costs by 30 percent compared to the previous deployments.

Recently, Red Hat signed a definitive agreement to acquire Ansible, a provider of IT automation solutions.

The transaction is expected to close in October 2015, subject to customary closing conditions.

Few days ago, Red Hat announced that Verdipapirsentralen ASA  (VPS), Norway’s national Central Securities Depository, has deployed a private, on premise Platform-as-a-Service solution based on OpenShift Enterprise by Red Hat.
