Open source solutions provider Red Hat, Inc today announced updates to its OpenStack enterprise and community technologies and roadmap, including the advancement of its enterprise Red Hat OpenStack offering into an early adopter programme and the availability of RDO, a community-supported distribution of OpenStack that runs on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Fedora and their derivatives.

In addition, Red Hat today also announced Red Hat OpenStack Cloud Infrastructure Partner Network, a global ecosystem of technology and services partners to help accelerate the adoption of Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure solutions.

"OpenStack represents an ideal example of community-powered innovation in the cloud, and Red Hat is committed to bringing a community-to-subscription model around the OpenStack technology that aims to redefine IT," said Brian Stevens, CTO and vice president, Worldwide Engineering, Red Hat.

"We support the OpenStack ecosystem through software development and community engagement and are excited to continue advancing these technologies with the community through RDO and for our enterprise customers with advancements with our Red Hat OpenStack distribution today."
