QxStack with Cloud Native Platform

Pre-validated container platform to accelerate cloud native applications

Cloud native technology has been highlighted in modern cloud infrastructure design for its light weight and high portability. It also achieves efficient development and operation (DevOps), thereby facilitating agile service deployment and business innovation. To accelerate cloud-native transformation at minimized expenses, QCT validated the Red Hat® OpenShift Container Platform and Kubernetes Platform to ensure high-quality service and performance.

QCT Cloud Native Platform
  • Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform
  • QCT Validated Kubernetes Platform

Accelerating cloud native applications with superior network performance, extendibility, and stability


QCT QxStack with Cloud-Native Platform is a Platform as a Service (PaaS) solution built on the Red Hat® OpenShift® Container Platform and strengthened by Intel Enhanced Platform Awareness (EPA) technology. The production-ready performance-optimized solution features a Hyper Converged Infrastructure (HCI) architecture that supports VMs and container coexistence and allows resource sharing. Furthermore, with exceptional network performance and stability, the solution achieves ideal CAPEX and OPEX in all stages of new technology implementation.
