Swiss Online Supermarket Retailer LeShop.ch Creates New Online Shopping Experience with OpenShift Enterprise by Red Hat
OpenShift Helps LeShop.ch development and operations teams migrate to a new microservices-based application platform.
Red Hat Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, today announced that LeShop.ch, the largest online supermarket in Switzerland with 60 percent marketshare of the online grocery market, has selected OpenShift Enterprise, Red Hat’s award-winning on-premise, private Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), to deploy and manage its new online shopping application. With OpenShift Enterprise, LeShop.ch now has an efficient and scalable platform for developing, running, and operating its online supermarket.
"We are very happy with how the project is progressing and the first-class support from Red Hat. It’s not going to be a problem to complete the project on time and on budget. OpenShift Enterprise provides all of the functions we need to implement the highly flexible micro-services architecture in development and operation." Raphael AnthamattenHead of Infrastructure and Operations, LeShop.ch
In 2014, LeShop.ch migrated its monolithic online shopping application to a more agile, microservices-based technology platform to increase performance and flexibility, enabling it to better compete in the highly competitive online retail market. To enable this new application architecture, LeShop.ch evaluated several competing PaaS platforms, including Cloud Foundry, as well as explored the option to individually create its own homegrown application platform with Docker. LeShop ultimately selected OpenShift Enterprise as the PaaS solution that best met its needs because it provided key functions for development, integration, implementation, and operation and also enabled a hybrid cloud deployment.
OpenShift Enterprise provides LeShop.ch with access to a cloud-based application platform, enhancing its ability to build the applications it needs and have them run in a hybrid cloud architecture, both in their own datacenter and the public cloud. It automates much of the provisioning and management of the application platform stack in a way that enables LeShop.ch’s IT operations team to more easily meet growing business demands for new application services. OpenShift Enterprise also provides an on-demand, elastic, scalable and fully configured application deployment and runtime environment for application developers, so that they can focus on building these new application services.
LeShop created a new application architecture for its online shopping application consisting of loosely coupled components, known as microservices. Developers at LeShop.ch broke down the previous monolithic application into dozens of microservices leveraging modular design principles. OpenShift Enterprise was critical in providing a platform for deploying and managing these highly distributed services, across a hybrid cloud environment.
Red Hat has also provided LeShop.ch with its award-winning support, including professional services and training programs, helping LeShop.ch to build up the expertise to manage both future development projects and the operation of its new online shopping application in-house.
