Red Hat releases Cloud Infrastructure Version 5
Latest version adds advanced systems management for OpenStack private clouds
Open source solutions provider, Red Hat, this week announced the general availability of Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure Version 5, featuring systems management capabilities from Red Hat Satellite.
Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure is aimed at supporting organisations in migrating from traditional data centre virtualisation to OpenStack-powered clouds. With Cloud Infrastructure Version 5, users can now manage their virtualisation and OpenStack environments simultaneously, via a single platform.
Under Cloud Infrastructure 5, a single subscription offering now includes Red Hat CloudForms, Red Hat Satellite, Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform and Red Hat Enterprise Virtualisation.
"Hybrid environments are simply the reality of today's IT organisations, and organisations want to get to the cloud on their own terms and timeline," said Joe Fitzgerald, vice president and general manager, Cloud Management, Red Hat. "Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure acknowledges that reality, and by bringing software lifecycle and configuration management capabilities that span physical, virtual and cloud systems to users via the addition of Red Hat Satellite, we're helping to establish Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure as one of the most comprehensive and premier cloud infrastructure solutions for enterprises."
