Red Hat Forum Zurich 2019
Also this year we attended Red Hat Forum Switzerland in Zurich with APPUiO as sponsor and with a booth on site. In 2019 the event took place at StageOne in Oerlikon and the number of visitors this year was even higher than in the last years. About 900 participants found their way to the 8th Red Hat Forum.
Red Hat and IBM
In addition to Open Source, DevOps, Microservices and Containers, the takeover of Red Hat by IBM was of course another big topic that was discussed extensively this year. But both the Red Hat management team and each individual employee are convinced that Red Hat will remain in its current form and that IBM will create new opportunities for them. So far, there have been absolutely no differences in day-to-day business. For Red Hat, IBM is „shareholder and partner at the same time“, which would open many new doors.
APPUiO at Red Hat Forum
APPUiO had a booth on site and were very happy to see many familiar faces again, but we also made many new contacts. Great keynotes and breakout sessions as well as a great ambience made the Red Hat Forum a special event. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the organizers and the super friendly service staff!
There were even red Clouds!
Our latest joint project. APPUiO on Philips. 🙂
After the official part of the Red Hat Forum APPUiO invited to a beerup. The number of visitors was even bigger than last time in Sihlcity – it felt like half of the Red Hat Forum crowd also joined our beerup. 🙂
But only those who were in possession of a golden ticket were let in by the strict admission control. 🙂
In a pleasant atmosphere with many nice people and a wonderful late summer evening we had some drinks after the Red Hat Forum in the Giesserei in Oerlikon and had great conversations. We would like to thank all visitors and are looking forward to the next time! (PS: if you want to have a look at the Red Hat Forum 2018 impressions, you can find our blog post here)
See you soon and take care.

APPUiO – Swiss Container Platform
With APPUiO.ch, we created the Swiss container platform based on Red Hat OpenShift, where we provide managed services on a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) on any infrastructure: public, dedicated, private and on-premises. Reliable open source concepts such as Docker and Kubernetes allow you to develop, operate and scale your application according to your needs. With APPUiO, your applications can be operated both on public clouds as well as on in-house data centers. The platform was originally built by the two IT specialists Puzzle ITC and VSHN AG to professionalize internal IT. Today, APPUiO is already used in production by several customers and supported by a strong community.
