Evolution Systems Builds Cloud with Red Hat

Evolution Systems, a Sydney, Australia-based full service IT support business, is using Red Hat Solutions to build its cloud service offering. The Evolution Cloud service is built leveraging a combination of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.6 and Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 2.2.  This offering has enabled many customers to achieve new levels of scalability, performance and flexibility, says Red Hat, a global provider of open source solutions.

Evolution Systems launched its cloud services offering earlier this year to set up an environment that could be quickly virtualized at a low cost. The company aimed to sell virtualized servers and storage at a competitive price and in order to do so it wanted a scalable technology foundation that could provide fast deployment at an affordable price.

Evolution Systems realized that it wanted a virtualization solution to address its requirements and evaluated available options in the market including solutions from Red Hat and VMware.

The beauty of working with Red Hat technology is that it makes our offering a more attractive cloud option for customers because of our ability to provide scalability and flexibility,” said Geoff Boreland, managing director at Evolution Systems. “Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization enable us to offer a stable and secure environment for customer data and provide us with cost savings that we can pass directly on to our customers.”

We’re confident in Red Hat and its technology solutions, and we’re effectively betting our cloud business on these technologies because they’re the foundation of what we offer. We know that at the end of the day, our customers want their data stored, and they want it stored safely and securely. With Red Hat as the basis of our cloud service, we have the tools to help us deliver that,” added Boreland.
