BOSTON-- Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced "Red Hat Cloud, HP Edition," a private cloud design and reference architecture that combines Red Hat Cloud solutions with HP CloudSystem, HP Cloud Maps and technology services to enable customers to build Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) clouds today.
"Cloud computing is defining the next chapter in the successful partnership Red Hat enjoys with HP," said Scott Crenshaw, vice president and general manager, Cloud Business at Red Hat. "Together, we're able to offer a private cloud on a converged infrastructure that not only meets business expectations of dynamic, instantly available resources, but offers the open, cost-optimizing and high-performance infrastructure that Red Hat and HP have been delivering in the marketplace for over a decade."
"Organizations building private clouds in their datacenters are looking to speed innovation and reduce time to revenue," said Paul Miller, vice president, Solutions and Strategic Alliances, Enterprise Servers, Storage and Networking at HP. "By combining HP CloudSystem, HP Consulting Services and Red Hat Cloud solutions, organizations can quickly design, build and manage an enterprise private cloud from infrastructure to applications."
The new Red Hat Cloud, HP Edition offering builds on Red Hat Cloud Foundations, which combines the technology leadership of Red Hat solutions, including Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization, JBoss Enterprise Middleware and Red Hat Network Satellite, to help customers build IaaS clouds. The performance, scalability and robust developer/application ecosystem delivered by Red Hat Enterprise Linux have made it a compelling operating platform for running applications in the cloud. Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization was architected from the beginning to address the performance, security and Quality of Service (QoS) challenges that multi-tenancy creates and to meet enterprise requirements for cloud adoption and trust. Red Hat Network Satellite makes the provisioning and distribution of virtual appliances simple and easier, across a diverse set of capacity.
The offering includes several elements of HP's Hybrid Delivery Cloud solutions, including HP CloudSystem Matrix, a platform for private clouds that reduces the time it takes customers to provision complex infrastructure and applications. HP CloudSystem Matrix offers HP Cloud Maps, which can be imported directly into client cloud environments, enabling them to more rapidly build a catalog of cloud services for the business. HP Cloud Maps are available for Red Hat environments running Red Hat Enterprise Linux and JBoss Enterprise Middleware. The HP Cloud Map for JBoss Enterprise Middleware includes a template to automate the infrastructure provisioning and deployment for JBoss Enterprise Middleware, which speeds application deployment and reduces risk by providing engineered, tested and proven configurations.
The solution includes services from Red Hat and HP Technology Consulting to help customers design, deploy and support cloud environments, including HP Cloud Consulting and Infrastructure Services, HP Cloud Discovery Workshop, HP Cloud Roadmap Service and HP Cloud Design Service.
