Red Hat has today announced a strategic partnership with Kyndryl to help customers embrace open, differentiated automation technologies and managed services to modernize core business applications and IT infrastructure, while enabling scalable enterprise operations and greater resilience with advanced security capabilities.

Together, Red Hat and Kyndryl will offer integrated services and solutions based on the Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform to automate critical workloads from the enterprise data center to the edge and across public clouds.

Kyndryl plans to further scale its automation architecture through joint engineering work with Red Hat to extend its storage and network automation capabilities across its services team.

In addition, Kyndryl and Red Hat will establish an Ansible Innovation Center to co-create solutions and help customers realize hybrid cloud transformation by automating IT operations and services from the infrastructure level to the cloud and the edge. This will include jointly developed playbooks, enablement, and support based on Ansible Automation Platform and Kyndryl infrastructure services.

“By increasing the integration of Kyndryl’s leading infrastructure services with Red Hat’s industry-leading open hybrid cloud technology, we are better able to deliver services and technologies that work hand-in-hand to provide a more seamless customer experience,” Stephen Leonard, Global Alliances & Partnerships Leader, Kyndryl. “We look forward to working with Red Hat to help customers accelerate their ability to achieve true business agility through open multi-cloud solutions.”

“Customers today are operating in increasingly diverse and complex IT environments, spanning on-premises data centers to public and private clouds. Automated solutions and managed services are crucial for customers to effectively scale and manage today’s hybrid multi-cloud landscape,” said Stefanie Chiras, senior vice president, Partner Ecosystem Success, Red Hat. “Red Hat’s collaboration with Kyndryl integrates automation with managed services to support customers across infrastructure, networking and cloud operations, alleviating the burden of manual IT operations and making it easier to grow into the future.”

Kyndryl and Red Hat already jointly support almost 900 customers globally and are working with companies like Bord Gais Energy, an energy and services supplier in the Republic of Ireland, to help them reap the benefits from the combination of advanced automation and managed services with Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform.
