Crayon announced that they have joined the Red Hat Certified Cloud and Service Provider program to serve Southeast Asia's two key markets - Singapore and Malaysia. The Red Hat Certified Cloud and Service Provider program offers both customers and independent software vendors (ISVs) greater confidence from a partner ecosystem when building next-generation IT projects using Red Hat solutions. As a Red Hat Certified Cloud and Service Provider, Crayon plans to support its clients to drive digital transformation and to optimize ROI from cloud and complex technology investments.
Crayon customers will benefit from Cloud-iQ, which is a comprehensive one-stop shop, self-service portal, enabling customers to deploy and accurately manage an agile procurement and provisioning strategy across multiple cloud technologies.
Partners and customers can also engage with Crayon's Digital 360 model. It is a framework for digital transformation, aimed at helping guide organizations on their digitization journeys. The framework is aligned with worldwide industry standards, open and commonly accepted frameworks and methodologies, and it serves as the foundation on which Crayon engages with customers and partners.
Cloud provider models have expanded beyond multi-tenant public clouds to include private cloud build-outs, Linux container-based infrastructure and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solutions, and the Red Hat Certified Cloud and Service Provider program was created to offer additional flexibility to help solution providers better meet customer needs for cloud-based Red Hat technologies. By using a Red Hat Certified Cloud and Service Provider, customers and partners using custom-developed or third-party ISV applications certified on Red Hat Enterprise Linux and other Red Hat solutions can have greater confidence that these applications will function as expected when using them on a public cloud or managed service provider.
The Red Hat Certified Cloud and Service Provider designation is awarded to Red Hat partners following validation by Red Hat. Each provider must meet testing and certification requirements to demonstrate that it can deliver a safer, scalable, supported and consistent environment for enterprise cloud deployments. The globally-unified program provides customers, ISVs, and partners with the confidence that Red Hat product experts have validated a given solution so that implementations can begin with a solid foundation.
