Red Hat new partner for the DRIVE project2022-11-03
Computer Science at Karlstad university is welcoming Red Hat as a new partner within the DRIVE project. Red Hat is a global software company that provides Linux based open source software products to enterprises. This includes hybrid cloud infrastructure, middleware, agile integration, cloud-native application development, and management and automation solutions. We got the chance to speak with Simone Ferlin-Reiter, senior performance and scale engineer at Red Hat.
What are your expectations from the project?
For us, the main motivation to take part in this are the intangible values such as networking with other companies, developing our competence and talent hunting. We are looking forward to take part of the other partners’ use cases and challenges.
The DRIVE project will give the opportunity to use the university’s 5g test bed, do Red Hat have any plans for any experiments in the test bed?
In this context, we are not very involved in development, but rather in usage. 5g technology is one main focus for Linux and cloud solutions. We are interested in experiments with edge and cloud services over the 5G testbed.
What will Red Hat contribute with to the DRIVE project?
What we will bring is a broad expertise regarding development and a whole different mindset around open source. There is a lot to learn from a market leader such as Red Hat. We are very much looking forward to this collaboration in Sweden, as a chance to interact more with excellent academia, and to be more visible towards students.
