As we know, Digital Transformation is the process of taking monolithic applications and breaking them into smaller micro services. Specifically related to containers, it enables companies to be more agile with production cycles, expand on demand, and produce a hybrid cloud infrastructure. It sounds complicated, I know. But don’t sweat it, SYNNEX is here to help facilitate this process from start to finish.
Our technical capabilities around Red Hat OpenShift allow us the ability to scope the opportunity and suggest information around how this digital transformation will look. In terms of talking full solution, we would also look at container security and offer such products as Twistlock. From securing containers at runtime, to enforcing compliance across the CI/CD pipeline, Twistlock is a centralized platform for protecting applications against the threats that face companies on a daily basis.
In addition to security, enterprise customers may also find a need for some sort of SDN play. In this case, a good play would be to utilize a VSP (virtualized services platform) technology such as SDN from Nuage. Nuage Networks Virtualized Services Platform (VSP) unifies cloud networking and SDN across hardware, virtualization platforms (such as VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V, Docker containers, OpenShift and Linux KVM), and cloud management software (such as OpenStack). It consolidates your datacenter and WAN infrastructure under one policy-based platform. And it provides an open, vendor-neutral environment that gives you flexibility and choice well into the future.
So, when the time arises to have these conversations with your customer, don’t hesitate to get us on the phone. We want to help our partners through these tough conversations. Digital Transformation can be scary, but SYNNEX can make it simple for you and your customer.
