Dell and Red Hat Announce OpenStack Cloud Solution

Dell and Red Hat announced a co-engineered, enterprise-grade private-cloud solution based on OpenStack.

The Dell Red Hat Cloud Solution combines Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 and Dell PowerEdge R630 and R730xd high-density rack servers, which offer a hyper-dense memory, storage flexibility and a compact footprint. It could be used for hosting massively scalable Red Hat Ceph Storage.

This latest release of the Dell Red Hat Cloud Solution stems from a longstanding collaboration between the two companies, and joint engineering within the OpenStack community.

“Enterprise customers are requiring robust and rapidly scalable cloud infrastructures that deliver business results,” said Jim Ganthier, vice president and general manager, Dell Engineered Solutions and Cloud. “Dell and Red Hat continue to jointly deliver cost effective, open source-based cloud computing solutions that provide greater agility to our customers, and this newest version of the Dell Red Hat Cloud Solution leverages best of breed technology from both companies to do so.”
