Red Hat OpenStack Platform

When your cloud performs better, so does your business

Your IT department is being challenged to react faster to growing customer demands. If you’re like many IT organizations, you’re exploring Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) private clouds, like OpenStack®, to swiftly deploy and scale IT infrastructure. But not just any OpenStack cloud can deliver the demands of a production-scale environment and meet your performance, scalability, and security standards. Fortunately, Red Hat® OpenStack Platform does all this and more.

Features & benefits

Co-engineered performance

It matters which OpenStack distribution and which Linux offering you choose. This is why we—recognizing the critical interdependencies between the two—co-engineer OpenStack and Linux® together with closely aligned product teams.

When we're dealing with a customer, the longest part of the sales cycle is getting the customer comfortable with the security of the platform in the cloud. When we say Red Hat, it clicks with the customer and shuts off half of their security questions.

Built-in security

Red Hat has earned some of the highest security credentials, including those from the U.S. Department of Defense and the National Institute of Standards and Technology. SELinux military-grade security technologies prevent intrusions and protect data when running in public or private OpenStack clouds.

Open source is synonymous with security
