Red Hat announced a set of solutions that the company plans to roll out in the coming months that are based on Red Hat products and technologies and are designed to enable enterprises to build and manage open hybrid clouds.
Red Hat’s four open hybrid cloud solutions include:
OpenShift Enterprise PaaS Solution: The leading cloud application platform for the enterprise, this solution will combine Red Hat CloudForms, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization and JBoss Enterprise Middleware to build an ITOps PaaS that is designed to deliver the speed and agility of PaaS desired by enterprise developers while addressing the governance and operational requirements of enterprise IT in an open and hybrid cloud. In the future this solution is planned to be expanded to enable customers to build a DevOps PaaS environment that is fully compatible with the OpenShift.com Public PaaS.
Red Hat Hybrid IaaS Solution: An open hybrid cloud solution for enterprises, this offering will include the software needed to deploy and manage a hybrid cloud, including virtualization management with Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization; cloud management, governed self-service and systems management with Red Hat CloudForms; and guest operating system with Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Red Hat Cloud with Virtualization Bundle: Moving enterprises to the cloud for the price of virtualization, this offering packages Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization and Red Hat CloudForms together to enable users to move to the cloud more quickly by combining virtualization and cloud management into the same project cycle.
Red Hat Storage: Redefining enterprise and hybrid cloud storage with open source solutions, Red Hat Storage, the company’s scale-out, open source storage software for the management of unstructured data, is generally available with Red Hat Storage Server 2.0 today. Red Hat Storage transforms the enterprise and cloud storage market by – for the first time – combining community-powered innovation with the volume economics of industry standard x86 servers across on-premise, cloud or hybrid environments.
