Red Hat releases new open hybrid cloud management platform

CloudForms will enable enterprises to create and manage Infrastructure-as-a-Service hybrid clouds

By CBR Staff Writer

Open source software provider Red Hat has released a new open hybrid cloud management platform, Red Hat CloudForms.

The new platform will enable enterprises to create and manage Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) hybrid clouds with the ability to make self-service computing resources.

Leveraging CloudForms, organisations can build a hybrid cloud that encompasses a different infrastructure and from many vendors and can also manage their cloud applications while avoiding vendor lock-in.

Red Hat’s new release will also allow companies to build and manage an open enterprise hybrid cloud, providing infrastructure choice spanning across multiple virtualisation platforms. It also will enable enterprises to use their cloud for their workloads.

CloudForms gives enterprises the ability to provide end users with self-service capabilities, while satisfying IT administrators’ needs for control and governance.

Enterprises can now build and manage an open hybrid cloud by extending the capabilities provided in an on-premise cloud with the scale and features provided via a choice in trusted public clouds.

The new platform will enable enterprises reduce management complexity while maximising infrastructure flexibility by deploying and managing applications across multiple virtualisation technologies and the public cloud based on a single Application Blueprint and policy.
