北卡罗来那州RALEIGH市 – 2013年4月15日 – 全球领先的开源解决方案供应商红帽公司(纽约证交所上市代码:RHT)今天宣布,将更新其OpenStack企业及社区技术和路线图,包括将其企业级Red Hat OpenStack产品推广到早期采用方项目中,以及向市场推出RDO – 这种由社区支持的OpenStack可以在红帽企业 Linux、Fedora及其变体上运行。此外,红帽公司今天还宣布了Red Hat OpenStack云基础设施伙伴网络,这是一项全球技术及服务伙伴生态体系,将有助于加快红帽云基础设施解决方案的推广普及。

Red Hat OpenStack早期采用方项目

2012年8月,红帽公司宣布其Red Hat OpenStack发布版本中的预览版本正式上市,该版本基于极受欢迎的OpenStack框架,用于构建和管理私有、公共和混合基础设施即服务(IaaS)云。通过该产品,红帽公司在其业界惟一的企业级OpenStack版本发布计划中迈出了第一步,并且提供红帽公司屡获大奖的商业支持、认证硬件和应用厂商生态体系及领先优势,为全球需要企业级解决方案和支持的各类机构提供倍受信赖的开源云。

今天,红帽公司又发布了其正式的Red Hat OpenStack版本,在预览版的基础上进一步推进至早期采用方项目。Red Hat OpenStack预览版基于社区开发的Essex版本。今天的Red Hat OpenStack早期采用方项目则基于社区开发的Folsom版本,而红帽公司在该项目中是第二大的企业代码贡献方。在OpenStack.org社区本月发布的最近版本 – Grizzly中,红帽公司已经升格成为第一大企业代码贡献方。

Red Hat OpenStack能够为各类机构提供建立私有或公共IaaS云的基础,可用于处理具备云能力的各类负载。Red Hat OpenStack使客户能够在利用OpenStack技术的同时,保持 Red Hat Enterprise Linux上所构建平台的安全性、稳定性和为企业做好准备的能力。


RDO是可在Red Hat Enterprise Linux、Fedora及其变体上运行的社区支持OpenStack版本,从今天开始可免费获取。它可以提供OpenStack.org稳定版的纯上游OpenStack体验,且与红帽平台完全集成,并且极易部署。openstack.redhat.com所建立的社区还为您提供了与红帽平台上其他OpenStack用户交流的机会,从而利用社区的力量来共享知识并构建能力。

RDO中包含核心的OpenStack组件 – Nova、Glance、Keystone、Cinder、Quantum、Swift和Horizon,还有用于云应用协调的孵化项目 – Heat,以及用于资源监视和计量的Ceilometer。利用红帽开发的安装工具 – PackStack,可以实现非常简便轻松的安装过程。

除提供一系列的软件包外,RDO还可为红帽操作系统上的云计算平台用户提供一个交流的机会,让他们可以及时获取帮助并交流运行OpenStack方面的心得。Red Hat Enterprise Linux及其变体的用户可以利用该社区来获得上游OpenStack项目发布最新软件的官方软件包,而运行的平台则由用户自行选择。


RDO从今天起开始提供下载。对Red Hat OpenStack早期采用方项目感兴趣的用户可以接洽其红帽公司销售代表。Red Hat OpenStack早期采用方代码提供为期90天的免费评估期。

“OpenStack是云领域社区创新的理想范例,而红帽公司也将致力于围绕OpenStack技术推出社区至订用的模式,其目标是使该技术更为精湛。我们将通过软件开发和社区参与的方式为OpenStack生态体系提供支持,并将通过RDO社区继续推广这些技术,以及今天发布的Red Hat OpenStack版本中面向企业客户的技术进步。”
