How Red Hat helps Vorwerk drive innovation with IoT

Vorwerk & Co. was founded in Wuppertal Germany in 1883, and in over more than 130 years, the company has transitioned from carpet factory to a broadly diversified, international corporate group.

Vorwerk sells superior lifestyle products worldwide like Thermomix kitchen appliances, Kobold vacuum cleaners, and more. These products are connected to an application back end and are managed by its specific software solution.

Vorwerk was looking for a cloud-agnostic, multi-regional, highly available back end framework to take the next step into the IoT and digitalization business. Fast time to market, a standardized development environment, and easy integration of software development partners have been key requirements.

In this session you'll learn how Red Hat and our partner, Adfinis Sygroup, implemented a cloud-agnostic, highly automated, and highly available IoT framework solution based on Red Hat OpenShift, Red Hat Gluster Storage, and Red Hat CloudForms for public clouds.
