Table 1. Ongoing operational management
|Single life-cycle tool for deployment and management||One tool is used for planning, deploying, and managing an OpenStack environment. Red Hat OpenStack Platform director is embedded in Red Hat OpenStack Platform and is updated to add new capabilities to further simplify Day 0 to Day 2 platform operations.|
|Workload and infrastructure management||Red Hat CloudForms® can manage OpenStack workloads and infrastructure. It gives you resource management and data collection over OpenStack clouds, including resource monitoring and reporting, compliance assurance, chargeback and showback, service cataloging, user management, and heat template management.|
|Distributed compute nodes||Build an edge computing architecture with distributed compute nodes, placing compute power closer to the data source and providing consistent, centralized management from the core to the edge.|
|Integration with Red Hat Satellite||Users can access Red Hat Satellite for application and operating system (OS) entitlement, including images and host package management displayed by Red Hat OpenStack Platform director.|
|Containerized OpenStack services||Running OpenStack services in containers lets you manage and scale each service independently. This simplifies deployment, upgrades, rollback, and management to deliver increased control and flexibility.|
|Deployments using Red Hat Ansible® Automation integration with Red Hat OpenStack Platform director||IT operations teams can preview the OpenStack deployment before it goes live using Red Hat Ansible, allowing anticipation of potential deployment or upgrade issues. Added visibility during the deployment process enables faster failure identification and debugging, including the ability to repeat and reapply isolated deployment steps if a failure occurs.|
