Red Hat OpenStack Platform

Use cases

From private cloud rollout to network function virtualization (NFV) deployments and public cloud service delivery to container application platform creation, we’ve helped hundreds of business realize their cloud goals using OpenStack. Build it, deploy it, and deliver it with open source at the core and us at your side.

Private cloud

Build a cloud from the comfort of your own systems

We have everything you need to build your private cloud environment. Get ahead of tomorrow’s IT service demands comfortably behind your organization’s firewall.

As we expand our Advanced Cyberinfrastructure resources, it will increasingly reside on Red Hat OpenStack Platform as the resource governing framework. Red Hat will be a huge part of our growth.

Chuck Gilbert, Technical Director for Advanced Cyberinfrastructure Systems, Institute for Cyberscience, Pennsylvania State University

We are keen to spearhead development for technology platforms that can power our future networks, like OpenStack, and are teaming closely with Red Hat to drive innovation in open communities to help shape them in line with real-world requirements.


Network function virtualization

Deploy services faster

Red Hat® is the only open source vendor that can deliver the complete software stack for production-grade NFV infrastructure. Get the speed to innovate ahead of the curve and the stamina to outlast the challenges by pairing the benefits of open source with the standards of NFV technologies.

Cloud service providers

Scale fast, scale safe

It's a prepped, on-demand cloud. Serve multiple tenants, simplify the routines, track usage and chargeback, and pivot when new technology comes out.

With Red Hat OpenStack Platform, our customers are reassured that our solutions are validated and certified against world-class open standards and that implementation can begin with a solid foundation.

Gio Bacareza, CEO, Institute for Cyberscience, Morphlabs

We worked with Red Hat to successfully provide an integrated hybrid cloud solution using the company’s cloud technologies such as Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, Red Hat CloudForms, and Red Hat OpenStack Platform. The new, unified hybrid cloud has helped increase our agility and reduce cost and infrastructure footprint, improving capacity planning and standardization of infrastructure builds.


Container application platform

Speed up app development

Running containers on OpenStack can scale containers' benefits from single, siloed teams to enterprise-wide interdepartmental operations. Self-service functionality, microservices, and reusable components can simplify big changes with standards-based container hosts, images, orchestration, registration, and discovery.

Customer success stories

Scaling cloud storage to improve reliability and stability

Mobile service provider Turkcell needed a flexible, scalable platform to meet the demands of its consumer cloud storage product. With Red Hat OpenStack Platform, Turkcell built a platform to deploy new features faster, simplify management, and scale to accommodate expected growth—all while reducing costs.


MyRepublic adopts unified cloud for greater flexibility and scalability

Internet service provider MyRepublic faced challenges managing growth with a fragmented legacy IT infrastructure. To achieve greater flexibility and scalability, MyRepublic migrated to a unified private cloud using Red Hat solutions. As a result, the company cut time to market for new services, improved management and availability, and substantially reduced hardware costs and total cost of ownership (TCO).
