Red Hat Technology Accreditation Strengthens Cloud Migration Solutions

Force 3 is pleased to announce that Pete Poudel, Force 3’s Cloud Architect, has received accreditation in Red Hat OpenShift and Ansible technologies, giving Force 3 the opportunity to provide customers expert guidance on these technology tools to better support their path to cloud migration.

IBM’s acquisition of Red Hat last year signaled the importance of cloud technology in the IBM portfolio. As Force 3’s Bridge to the Cloud solution includes IBM Cloud Private, which is now supported with Red Hat technology, it was important for Force 3 to gain the deep knowledge and insight on Red Hat’s cloud migration tools and solutions offered by direct training and accreditation.

Poudel achieved accreditation through assigned study and instructor-led training offered by Red Hat, which combined included over 160 hours of work.

“Both technologies are so relevant in today’s world. Ansible’s automation framework and containerization from OpenShift’s Kubernetes have great growth potential and are the right solutions for our federal customers,” said Charles Fullwood, Force 3’s Senior Director of Software Solutions. “Having Pete achieve this accreditation gives us the power of expert knowledge and understanding that we can use to better serve our customers.”

Both OpenShift and Ansible solutions are built with industry knowledge and open source technology, which customers are more comfortable with. With this accreditation, Red Hat recognizes Force 3’s commitment to their technology, and customers can feel secure knowing they are working with accredited experts.
