Progress from self-service to self-sufficiency

Red Hat® CloudForms starts with a web-based self-service catalog and extends to cover the complete operational life-cycle of the deployed services, from provisioning to retirement—all within the same system.

Manage user environments and backend operations

IT managers get complete operational and life-cycle control with Red Hat CloudForms—starting, stopping, flexing, and scaling deployed services as needed. But this control can also be delegated to users via self-service ordering, if it aligns with corporate policy.
