Red Hat Builds OpenStack Cloud Momentum

Proof-of-concept deployments for Red Hat’s OpenStack hybrid cloud offerings are now underway with customers around the world, including at The Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT, Midokura (a Japanese company developing SDN solutions), Australia's National Computational Infrastructure (NCI), Singapore's Nanyang Technological University, and Portugal's Universidade do Porto.

At its Summit 2014 event this week in San Francisco, Red Hat said it has achieved significant momentum for its OpenStack-powered solutions for building hybrid clouds. Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform, currently available in version 4.0, delivers an integrated and optimized foundation for building OpenStack clouds, bringing together trusted Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat’s OpenStack technology.

“We're thrilled by the early momentum behind Red Hat’s OpenStack-powered offerings since general availability in July of last year. We’ve seen OpenStack move from an enterprise promise to enterprise reality, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform and Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure have emerged as industry-leading offerings for secure, scalable private clouds. These customer successes underscore the value Red Hat is offering through a solution engineered together with Red Hat Enterprise Linux and OpenStack, as well as establishing the standard for the largest OpenStack partner ecosystem to provide an open alternative to customers' private cloud needs," stated Radhesh Balakrishnan, general manager, Virtualization and OpenStack, Red Hat.
