rockPLACE: Driving Business Value through Open Source and Cloud Services

Follow rockPLACE on :

As companies face the challenge of preparing their IT infrastructure and processes for digital transformation, they are increasingly turning to open source software for a resolution. Apart from being affordable, open source solutions are also preferred because of their flexibility and agility. However, most often, the companies that are opting for digital transformation have been using on-premise IT tools and software for decades. As a result, it is extremely crucial for those companies to choose a technology partner that helps create the most viable digital IT infrastructure for them. One such partner is rockPLACE, a leading Korean open source and cloud service provider that leverages its partnerships with global technology vendors like Red Hat, Microsoft, and Google to offer leading-age digitalization services. The company boasts 14 years of experience in the open source arena and has more than 500 satisfied customers.

The name rockPLACE is an amalgam of two words—rock and place—that upholds the ethos of the company. While ‘rock’ stands for the company’s “rock and roll spirit” in terms of bringing innovation, ‘place’ describes the company’s founder’s, Seo Dong-shik’s, desire to build an ecosystem that allows clients to enjoy the benefits of open source. Always committed to this vision, rockPLACE partners with open source specialist, Red Hat to offer a broad range of professional services to help organizations maximize their product performance, infrastructure efficiency, and bring more value to their business practices.

rockPLACE’s team of certified professionals evaluates a company’s business goals, the maturity of its IT infrastructure, and explores various open source standards and solutions before recommending a strategy that aligns with the client’s precise requirements. “Our forte lies in offering open source consulting for Linux, JBoss, OpenStack, Openshift, MySQL, and EDB PAS,” says Jaejoon Kim, executive director of rockPLACE. To facilitate effective cloud migration, rockPLACE goes through comprehensive stages of consulting, planning, designing, and system integration to offer beneficial outcomes for its clients. “Our engineering specialists, having extensive experience with Red Hat solutions, utilize enterprise-optimized methodologies such as feasibility analysis, proof of concept, and reference architecture to cater to client’s open source demands,” elaborates Park.

At the forefront of rockPLACE’s unique open source services is its Platform Support carePACK, a package of comprehensive offering for reliable deployment and operation of open source based applications.

The Platform Support carePACK ensures that open source systems are integrated seamlessly. Further, rockPLACE’s performance/load testing services proactively validate different open source applications to ensure that it operates as per the client’s desired levels of capacity. Even after the initial deployment of open source systems, various performance issues might occur, leading to redesigning and re-deploying of the application. rockPLACE’s advanced performance/load testing modules help prevent such problems, thereby reducing the cost of the overall deployment. Apart from these, rockPLACE’s Precision Diagnosis performs precise analyses to effectively manage an enterprise’s database and provide systematic verification of its operational performance.

rockPLACE’s competency to deal with any issue in a company’s complex IT environment can be accredited to its one-stop failure response methodology.
