RALEIGH, N.C., Dec. 6 – Red Hat, Inc., the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, today announced advancements in its delivery of open hybrid cloud solutions and technologies to enterprises. Expanding its cloud footprint, Red Hat today delivers an update to its open hybrid cloud management platform with the availability of Red Hat CloudForms 1.1 and releases two cloud solution bundles and a services offering combining several of Red Hat’s leading product portfolios.
Red Hat CloudForms 1.1
In early June 2012, Red Hat delivered the first release of Red Hat CloudForms, an open hybrid cloud management platform built to enable enterprises to create and manage Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) hybrid clouds with the ability to make self-service computing resources available to users in a managed, governed and secure way. With CloudForms, enterprises can build and manage an open enterprise hybrid cloud, providing infrastructure choice spanning across multiple virtualization platforms and extending to public cloud resources, and can build and manage applications in their cloud, enabling enterprises to use their cloud for their workloads.
Today, Red Hat updates the CloudForms platform with the release of CloudForms 1.1. With this release, Red Hat has expanded the reach of the product further into Asia Pacific and Europe with enablement for four additional languages, including Korean, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese and Portuguese. The 1.1 release also incorporates a number of updates and fixes covering features such as:
Open Hybrid Cloud Solutions and Open IaaS Architecture Service Offering
At the Red Hat Summit in June 2012, Red Hat announced a set of solutions designed to enable enterprises to build and manage open hybrid clouds. Combining Red Hat’s full portfolio of products, the solutions offer enterprises an easy on-ramp to open hybrid cloud computing with reduced complexity.
The first of the four solutions, Red Hat Storage, was delivered in June 2012. Today, Red Hat announces the general availability of two additional open hybrid cloud solutions:
In addition, Red Hat is also launching a new cloud-focused offering from its Services team, called the Open IaaS Architecture Service. Cloud services from Red Hat are designed to accelerate the development of functional, enterprise-ready clouds and their associated services and benefits to enterprises. To help enable a customer’s private or hybrid cloud for success from day one, Red Hat offers its Open IaaS Architecture Service, which defines, designs, installs and optimizes Red Hat’s cloud and virtualization offerings to deliver an open, scalable IaaS specific to each customer’s environment. The service also includes documentation of the installation as well as guidance on best practices for ongoing management.
CloudForms 1.1, the Red Hat Hybrid IaaS Solution, the Red Hat Cloud with Virtualization Bundle and the Open IaaS Architecture Service are globally available from Red Hat today.
