Why Red Hat OpenStack?
When you partner with us, we help your organization:

- Avoid vendor lock-in by moving to open technologies while maintaining your existing infrastructure investments.
What is OpenStack?
OpenStack is an open source project for building a private or public Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud running on standard hardware. The typical analogy is that OpenStack gives you public cloud-like capabilities in your datacenter.
Currently, we offer 2 ways to start benefiting from Red Hat OpenStack: a fully supported version for early adopters or a 90-day evaluation.
Red Hat OpenStack enterprise early adopters
If you’re ready to deploy a fully supported Red Hat OpenStack production environment now, consider our early adopter version. You can take advantage of the fast pace of OpenStack development without risking the stability and supportability of your production environment. As a Red Hat OpenStack customer, your needs are represented by Red Hat in the OpenStack community, where we’re one of the top corporate contributors and a major presence in all of the OpenStack subprojects.
90-day Red Hat OpenStack evaluation
If you’re interested in testing the OpenStack waters first, get the 90-day Red Hat OpenStack evaluation. Getting started is easy and free—just fill out the form. (You'll need a redhat.com account. If you don't have one, you’ll be prompted to create one—it’s quick and easy.)
The Red Hat OpenStack evaluation only works with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.3 or higher. The evaluation includes Red Hat Enterprise Linux subscriptions that let you create a 3-node OpenStack test cluster. You can use the Red Hat Enterprise Linux subscriptions both as the host operating system for OpenStack and as the guest operating system for all the virtual machines managed by OpenStack.
The fine print: The evaluation software you are downloading is for testing purposes only. It’s free, unsupported, and not for production use. The evaluation has been updated to include a channel for the Folsom version of OpenStack. The existing Essex evaluation channel will be available for users who want to remain on it.
