Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure

Private IaaS clouds

Build and manage a private cloud on your terms and timeline

Red Hat® Cloud Infrastructure is a combination of tightly integrated Red Hat technologies that lets you build and manage an open, private Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud—at a much lower cost than alternative solutions. You can deploy any combination of these components in whatever way you need.

Sounds better than paying too much for virtualization or cloud-infrastructure solutions and using multiple management tools that don't meet your needs, doesn't it?

Cloud infrastructure for the real world

A flexible, integrated private cloud solution

Your IT journey to the cloud should be based on your business demands and on your terms and timelines. Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure helps move your organization from traditional to cloud-enabled workload models, and to IT as a value-added service.

Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure includes:

Cost-effective, managed virtualization

Combining Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization with Red Hat CloudForms gives you a secure, full-featured virtualization solution. The included heterogeneous management tool spans Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization, VMware vSphere, and Microsoft Hyper-V.

Private cloud for traditional workloads

Do you have high service-level agreement (SLA) workloads that demand maximum uptime? Blend the high-availability features of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization with the broad cloud management in CloudForms. Use this solution to create and extend a cloud infrastructure made of virtualization technologies from multiple providers, and even public cloud providers—all managed from 1 interface.

On-ramp to OpenStack for traditional, cloud, and hybrid workloads

Red Hat OpenStack Platform—which now includes Red Hat Ceph Storage—and CloudForms provide a massively scalable, public-cloud-like infrastructure with management, self-service provisioning, chargeback, and more. You can:

  • Host the latest cloud-enabled workloads.
  • Regain control of shadow IT applications built on Amazon.
  • Pool computing resources for data modeling, big data, or software-defined networking.
  • Take advantage of software-defined storage with Red Hat Ceph Storage.
