Ahead of next week's OpenStack Summit, Red Hat is refreshing its lineup of cloud computing products. It unveiled OpenStack Platform 8, an update of its OpenStack distribution, which is now based on the Kilo release of the open source cloud computing platform. It also announced its new Red Hat Cloud Suite which incorporates cloud computing, DevOps, management and container tools into a unified solution.
"A lot of customers have existing infrastructure and applications. We straddle both worlds with RHEL, while Red Hat cloud infrastructure [tools] allows them to take existing infrastructure and optimize and run infrastructure more efficiently through [our] control panel and management [tools]," said James Labocki, product owner, Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure.
