Red Hat introduces Cloud management certification
Management vendors align with Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform
Provider of open source solutions Red Hat, Inc has today announced a new cloud management certification for Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform as part of the Red Hat OpenStack Cloud Infrastructure Partner Network.
Red Hat, who is working closely with many management solution providers, including BMC and HP, say that the new certification will enable cloud management solutions from partners to interoperate with and manage Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform and that it offers customers confidence that their OpenStack-based clouds and management solutions have been fully tested together and are supported jointly by Red Hat and the participating companies.
Radhesh Balakrishnan, general manager, virtualisation and OpenStack, Red Hat, said: "As OpenStack is becoming a core element of the enterprise cloud strategy for many customers, Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform is architected and backed by the broadest partner ecosystem to be the preferred platform. The growth and maturity of the ecosystem reflects the evolution of the product moving from addressing infrastructure-centric alignment to help with early deployments to now be well-managed, to be part of enterprise hybrid cloud implementations."
The expansion of Red Hat's certification program to include cloud management solutions enables customers who want to deploy Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform at scale in a private cloud to also use their management solution of choice.
