Cloud performance on a co-engineered foundation

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.

Bring in hundreds of certified partners' solutions

Backed by our certified OpenStack partner ecosystem, we simplify integration with existing datacenter investments through a partner certification program for hundreds of software, hardware, and services partners.

Built-in cloud security

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

Update with every release or standardize for years

Use our integrated director to deploy the latest features by updating with every new release. You can also standardize on a single version with at least 3 years of support, or add a Red Hat Enterprise Linux Extended Update Support Add-On subscription for an extra 1 or 2 years of support.

Scale-out storage

Red Hat Ceph® Storage is a software-defined storage platform that's engineered for private cloud architectures. Integrated with Red Hat OpenStack Platform and all of OpenStack's open source projects, Red Hat Ceph Storage lets you provision hundreds of virtual machines and build fully supported cloud platforms.
