October 31, 2014
MANILA, Philippines – Red Hat, Inc., the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, announced Morphlabs as the first and only Red Hat Certified Cloud Provider in the Philippines, enabling Morphlabs and Red Hat to provide emerging market customers with a world-class open source enterprise cloud.
“Morphlabs has been a pioneer in cloud computing technologies and OpenStack in particular. Collaborating with a global leader like Red Hat is the obvious choice to provide service efficiency. As a Red Hat Certified Cloud Provider, our customers can enjoy the flexible models that support various guest operating systems (both proprietary and open source) and all workloads from single-tenant on-premise environment to a multi-tenant hosted private cloud, with multiple datacenter locations,” said Gio Bacareza, Morphlabs’ chief executive officer.
As a certified cloud provider, Morphlabs will provide Red Hat’s product offerings on Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform. Customers can now rely on Morphlabs to extend Red Hat’s OpenStack and open source expertise to deploy, implement and manage OpenStack-based cloud infrastructure.
According to the 2014 IDC Annual Continuum Survey, “almost 60 percent of the companies in the Philippines will be more aggressive in their IT expenditure in the coming 12 months compared to a year ago. This would translate to a 20-45 percent overall increase in total IT spending.” Red Hat’s collaboration with Morphlabs, an accomplished leader in cloud solutions, is aimed at contributing to increased customer confidence in building out such industry-standard and world-class cloud infrastructure.
“We are pleased that Morphlabs, a valued strategic partner, regards us as a trusted and preferred provider for enterprise cloud computing in a fast-growing market like the Philippines where spending this year has been largely driven by cloud and big data,” said Damien Wong, senior director and general manager, ASEAN, Red Hat.
