Red Hat OpenStack Platform

A secure private cloud ready for hybrid cloud architecture

OpenStack is a combination of open source software services that work together in unison to create pooled resources to run and manage a private clouds. 6 of these projects handle the core cloud-computing services of compute, networking, storage, identity, and image services, while more than a dozen optional services can be added to create unique, deployable clouds.

Red Hat® OpenStack Platform gives enterprises an open foundation to deploy, scale, and manage a private cloud. It combines Red Hat Enterprise Linux® Server and Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) into a secure infrastructure—a combination that allows users to run OpenStack nodes (such as compute, storage, and management) like a public cloud, but in a private environment.

Red Hat OpenStack Platform is co-engineered with Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Red Hat CloudForms, and Red Hat Ceph Storage so you have access to dynamic monitoring, data processing, and orchestration tools with a bunch of customizable dashboards. Use Red Hat OpenStack Platform to build a cloud using your own systems, deploy services, scale quickly, and accelerate application development.
