Red Hat announces cloud solutions with Dell
Duo announces co-engineered, enterprise-grade, private cloud solutions
Open source solutions provider, Red Hat Inc. has announced the availability of co-engineered, enterprise-grade, private cloud solutions in collaboration with Dell.
Based on OpenStack, the Dell Red Hat Cloud solution is powered by Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack platform. The two companies aim to provide enterprise customers at various stages of OpenStack evaluation and use, with an enterprise-grade software lifecycle experience, and to deliver greater stability, predictability and rigor to the community-published OpenStack updates.
Sam Greenblatt, vice president, enterprise solutions group technology strategy at Dell said: "Dell is a long-time supporter of OpenStack and this important extension of our commitment to the community now will include work for OpenShift and Docker, which we think will help customers with choice in cloud resources, and application development and optimisation. We are building on our long history with open source and will apply that expertise to our new cloud solutions and co-engineering work with Red Hat."
The solutions, which are available today, are designed to address enterprise customer demand for more flexible, elastic and dynamic IT services to support and host non-business critical applications - including mobile, social and analytics - and development and test environments.
They have been optimised and validated by Dell and Red Hat to provide rapid on-ramps to OpenStack private clouds.
Proof of concept configuration is designed for customers looking to explore OpenStack capabilities, research deployment options, pilot application deployments, and begin the development of an OpenStack cloud environment.
Paul Cormier, president for products and technologies at Red Hat said: "Cloud innovation is happening first in open source, and what we're seeing from global customers is growing demand for open hybrid cloud solutions that meet a wide variety of requirements. Whether it is enterprise-grade private cloud solutions, or DevOps solutions to build applications for both public and private clouds, through our expanded work with Dell, we're focused on delivering the flexible solutions that meet these varied needs."
