X by Orange is building a greenfield, cloud-native platform, enabling the service provider to embrace DevOps and agile development and more rapidly create and deliver digital services to business customers.

X by Orange aims to provide digital services and solutions to improve productivity for enterprises, in the areas of collaboration, privacy and security, and cloudification of infrastructure. Initial offerings cover unified communications, data privacy based on SD WAN, and legal music for retail stores.

X by Orange selected Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform to quickly create and release new services and give it a “provider agnostic” Kubernetes platform on top of multicloud infrastructure.

Red Hat OpenShift’s API-driven architecture enables X by Orange to work with a diverse partner ecosystem, helping the company offer a range of its own and third-party services without sacrificing platform stability or reliability.

Red Hat OpenShift opens up Red Hat’s vast ecosystem of certified container solutions, providing an avenue for X by Orange to use the latest enterprise-ready, cloud-native innovations to meet emerging needs.

Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform is designed to support a DevOps strategy by uniting developers and IT operations on a single platform to build, deploy, and manage applications across hybrid cloud and multicloud infrastructures.

“Leaving behind the burden of legacy systems, we are committing to DevOps and agile. We chose Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform for the freedom it gives us on top of different public clouds, all rooted in Kubernetes-native APIs and experience,” Jose Maria San Jose Juarez, chief technical and information officer, X by Orange, said.

“X by Orange is pushing a new frontier in digital transformation as a communications service provider that doesn’t own a single piece of hardware,” Ashesh Badani, vice president and general manager, Cloud Platforms, Red Hat, said.
