Nordic technology innovator powers its datacenter with Red Hat Storage and Red Hat Enterprise Linux

Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, today announced that Goodtech ASA, a leading Nordic technology and engineering company, has implemented Red Hat Storage and Red Hat Enterprise Linux in its datacenter to address the company’s evolving storage requirements with an open, highly flexible and scalable solution.

Goodtech develops and delivers projects, services and products creating business value for customers within a number of industries and sectors including manufacturing, energy, green technology and infrastructure. Among Goodtech’s customers in the Nordic region are industry leaders such as Astra Zeneca, LKAB, Vattenfall, Statoil and Norsk Hydro.

Prior to the implementation, Goodtech experienced scalability challenges as a result of having a widespread and heterogenous IT environment that featured a range of old and costly storage solutions. With vast data volumes being managed by Goodtech and high demands on accessibility and security, the company was looking for a scalable solution with open standards, based on proven technology and from a renowned vendor. Red Hat Storage met their needs perfectly.

Implementing Red Hat Storage enables Goodtech to lead the way towards the next generation of enterprise storage by using disruptive, open software-defined storage with a high degree of flexibility, scalability and cost-effectiveness. With Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Goodtech receives a platform designed to address the rapid evolution of the modern datacenter enabling Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) with a high degree of automation. The Red Hat solutions deployment affirms Goodtech’s IT strategy to implement solutions based on open standards with enterprise-level services and support.

“At Goodtech we take the long view on IT and look beyond traditional solutions. Using proprietary solutions that address immediate needs posed a long-term risk for us in terms of being locked in with a vendor that cannot deliver on tomorrow’s requirements. From this standpoint enterprise-class open source is the smart choice. Red Hat’s reputation and ability to deliver on our long-term needs makes going with Red Hat Storage a natural choice.”
