Red Hat touts virtues of open source at GITEX
Company focuses on cloud, virualisation
Red Hat, provider of open source software, is demonstrating its latest innovations in cloud computing and virtualisation technologies at GITEX TECHNOLOGY WEEK. Visitors have the opportunity to discuss how Red Hat’s Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) Solutions, Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform and OpenShift by Red Hat can assist in the adoption of cloud models.
“As a leader in enterprise open source software, Red Hat will be demonstrating how it can create an enterprise class IT environment to support business objectives to regional CIOs and IT managers attending GITEX,” says Faycal Saile, general manager, Middle East, Africa and Turkey, Red Hat. “This is also a great opportunity for them to speak with the Red Hat team about the latest developments in the company’s cloud portfolio and understand how their companies could benefit from these solutions.”
Red Hat is a strong advocate of the open hybrid cloud computing model and believes that the open approach, based on open standards and open APIs, is essential to protecting businesses against what it sees as costly vendor lock-in.
At GITEX, Red Hat will showcase its OpenStack-powered product offerings focused on delivering an open hybrid cloud, including Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform, which provides an integrated foundation for building OpenStack clouds. Red Hat will demonstrate its open hybrid cloud management product, Red Hat CloudForms, which enables organisations to build and manage hybrid clouds accompanied by self-service, policy control and application lifecycle management.
Also in the spotlight will be OpenShift by Red Hat, a Plaform-as-a-Service solution.
