Corvesta Chooses Red Hat CloudForms for Management of Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure and Testing Environment

Open source management platform provides integrated management across health insurance provider's heterogeneous datacenter resources


Red Hat, Inc., the world's largest provider of open source software solutions, today announced that Corvesta, Inc. has selected Red Hat CloudForms as part of Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure to manage its build-out of a cohesive, hybrid cloud infrastructure aimed at business diversification. CloudForms will manage Corvesta’s existing private cloud infrastructure consisting of resources from Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization, Amazon Web Services and VMware.


“Corvesta is excited to be working with Red Hat on our cloud initiative. Working on our CloudForms and hybrid cloud proof of concept with the Red Hat team has given us a great opportunity to learn how CloudForms and hybrid cloud architectures can enable and enhance our enterprise infrastructure.”

Corvesta’s Director of Technology and Infrastructure Strategy


Corvesta, Inc., a company dedicated to advancing oral health, evaluated multiple cloud management platforms in order to transform their legacy infrastructure into an agile sandbox environment for development, as well as to explore the possibility of horizontal scaling through cloud computing that could respond to the business' demand. They selected Red Hat CloudForms for its open source ecosystem, which allows the solution to fully integrate and serve as the primary interface for Corvesta's existing cloud and Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization resources with little to no modification. Additionally, Red Hat CloudForms includes Corvesta's required infrastructure and management tools as well as a robust suite of offerings around compliance and policy management, service catalog management, automation and reporting, and optimization and utilization toolsets.


Along with automation and management tools, Red Hat CloudForms' support of multiple programming languages and the REST API allowed Corvesta to customize modules for their web interface and quickly develop test environments for those products through an automated service catalog– reducing the process from several days to less than 48 hours. Red Hat Cloudforms' ability to run as an appliance on a virtual machine also allowed the platform to easily integrate into Corvesta's high availability and disaster recovery infrastructure by following a standard cloning and migrating process between data centers.


In the future, Corvesta expects to expand their virtualization and storage resources, and migrate more proprietary resources to Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization, especially as they continue to grow their business in the oral health and related industries.
