Red Hat upgrades cloud infrastructure offerings
Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure 4.0 designed to give intro to OpenStack-based cloud
Open source solutions provider Red Hat, Inc today announced updates to its OpenStack-powered cloud infrastructure offering, Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure.
Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure 4.0 is designed to give enterprises an introduction to public cloud-like infrastructure based on OpenStack. The new version of Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure features tighter integration between its virtualisation, cloud and platform components, enabling users to create a single set of virtual images.
Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure 4.0 is built to provide organisations with a comprehensive Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) platform that bridges operations over existing traditional virtualisation environments, as well as new private and public cloud resources. It offers an alternative traditional virtualisation solution based on Red Hat Enterprise Virtualisation for traditional workloads, as well as a tightly integrated OpenStack cloud framework through Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform.
It also includes Red Hat CloudForms, a heterogeneous management tool to unify operations for multiple hypervisor environments and cloud technologies, enabling enterprises to deploy traditional and elastic workloads to the private cloud, public cloud, and the data centre as one cohesive environment.
Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure also includes Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform, which features Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
"Red Hat is excited about the updated offerings to meet the data centre virtualisation and elastic cloud needs of customers structuring their journey to an open hybrid cloud," said Radhesh Balakrishnan, general manager, Virtualisation, Red Hat.
"These offerings are engineered to help build a more productive and efficient open private cloud and provide a more reliable infrastructure for IT and cloud operators. Now backed by the world's largest OpenStack partner ecosystem, Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure helps IT to bridge data centre infrastructure silos and more effectively meet user needs."
