Red Hat announced the availability of CloudForms 4.2, the latest version of their open hybrid cloud management solution. The new solution helps IT teams increase service delivery and focus on critical, business-impacting issues by minimizing or outright eliminating the manual processes involved with rolling out new offerings.

Red Hat CloudForms 4.2 offers:

- Enhanced metrics and events for Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform

- An Amazon EC2 image for customer seeking to run the program on AWS

- Upgraded OpenStack capabilities, including tenant management and object/block storage management

- Enhanced chargeback capabilities for containers running on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform

Additionally, the launch of CloudForms 4.2 coincides with significant customer growth, as more enterprises globally turn towards unified hybrid cloud management. Global telecommunications providers and manufacturing organizations to research institutions and universities, like the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, deploy the solution to manage their hybrid IT environments.
