New Red Hat Cloud Suite for Applications Offers Open Source Integrated IaaS and PaaS Solution
|Richard Harris in Enterprise Tuesday, May 26, 2015|
Red Hat has announced Cloud Suite for Applications, an accelerated way to develop, deploy, and manage applications at scale using open source technologies. The new cloud offering helps enterprises reduce silos and enable more efficient OpenStack cloud deployments. Through the platform, Red Hat is offering IaaS, PaaS and management in an open environment, supported by Red Hat Enterprise Linux and the ability to leverage certified hardware of choice.
The Red Hat Cloud Suite for Applications address the needs of many organizations who have a high volume of workloads not yet adapted for a microservices or container-based architecture, but which could benefit from having a solution that supports both applications running within virtual machines and new container-based application architectures.
For example, developers may require storage services that are necessary for stateful application development, alongside a new container-based service. The ability to deploy both types of workloads on a single platform with unified management can enable an organization to realize new efficiencies.
Red Hat Cloud Suite for Applications provides both Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) for scalability and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) for application delivery, combined with a unified management framework that supports hybrid deployment models. Red Hat Cloud Suite for Applications enables customers to avoid cloud silos and provides the ability to select a service model of choice to best meet changing business requirements.
The platform integrates the following Red Hat PaaS, IaaS and hybrid cloud management offerings: OpenShift by Red Hat; Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform; and Red Hat CloudForms. With management of both OpenShift and OpenStack with Red Hat CloudForms operators can manage both PaaS and IaaS from a single console.
By integrating OpenShift with OpenStack, users not only have access to a faster way to develop, deploy, and manage applications, they also have access to a full suite of middleware and mobility services. In addition, Red Hat Cloud Suite for Applications also supports a broad range of certified hardware, servers and third-party plugins, bringing users expanded choices for their cloud stack.
Red Hat Cloud Suite for Applications is available via an Early Access Program. General availability for Red Hat Cloud Suite for Applications will be announced at a later
