Red Hat has announced two new cloud computing products for its enterprise customers. First, the company launched the RHEL (Red Hat Enterprise Linux) OpenStack Platform, which will help companies build public, private or hybrid cloud environments. Second, it debuted Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure, an infrastructure as a service management tool.
"As organizations migrate from traditional virtualization deployments to cloud architectures, the focus is shifting from just the hypervisor to the entire stack of cloud software, which includes IaaS cloud system software and hybrid cloud management," said IDC researcher Gary Chen. "As customers start evaluating technologies like OpenStack for cloud, Red Hat's new solutions are well-positioned to generate interest from the industry."
Both products are scheduled for a July release.
