Tuesday 5 July 2016 | 15:34 CET | News
Open source software provider Red Hat announced that it has helped Fastweb become the first Italian operator to launch a cloud service for businesses based on its OpenStack platform. Fastweb's cloud offering, FastCloud, is designed to deliver computing resources and application solutions to support enterprises in their digital transformation. The operator decided to migrate to OpenStack to increase service flexibility and interoperability with customers' IT environments, said Red Hat, adding that the platform helped reduce FastWeb's time to market, enabling the release of new cloud features.
