Get to know Extra Red
Extra Red was born in 2012 as Extra's Business Unit and then proceeded to become an indipendent company in 2017. We immediately started standing out for 4 main characteristics:
We were born as application integration experts, thanks to many different projects in the healthcare sector with Jboss Fuse and we became Red Hat's partners in 2013. This was an important and effective choice that contributed to Extra Red's growth and also influenced the choice of our brand's name.
We also became Red Hat's Advanced Business Partner in a very short period of time and acquired key competences on the entire middleware portfolio of Red Hat.
Years passed, and we couldn't remain unconcerned by what was happening around us: we started opening ourselves to the world of Cloud Computing and Systems Automation. We created an internal team dedicated to this subject and developed a special project, Red Hat, out public cloud through which we offer IaaS and PaaS services.
At the same time, microservices architectures and containers started expanding. This led us to offer application modernization and migration services, together with DevOps methodology services through one tool that we consider being the most strategically relevant of all for companies who want to embrace Digital Transformation: Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.
The most recent work team that Extra Red has developed is the Big Data Analytics one, a fundamental skill that is essential not only to middleware projects, but also as a standalone service that we can offer on the market through many different platforms.
With the right mix of expertise and skills, we then naturally proceeded to complete an IoT offer: we can manage huge amounts of data, we are able to visualize them, we know how and where to store them and we are able to create an added value with the right algorhytms. All of this has it own name: IoTsnap, the IoT solution by Extra Red.
Starting from 2019 Extra Red sealed two new partnerships: one with InfluxDB, an open source Time Series DB platform for metrics and events, and one with IBM after its Red Hat acquisition.
