Red Hat, NetApp and Cisco Collaborate to deliver an enterprise-grade OpenStack integrated infrastructure solution
I'm glad to see so many Red Hat partners at Red Hat Summit this week, including Cisco and NetApp. Red Hat has been collaborating closely with NetApp on enhancements to OpenStack, and integrating features and functions with Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform.
There are several areas we are working on together including:
Technology You Can Touch
It’s hard to overestimate the importance of software in the modern economy. As the world gets more connected and the price-to-performance of hardware continues to improve, investments are being shifted from reducing cost to generating new value. That value is often predominantly software-driven and as this new model takes hold, more and more companies will be, fundamentally, software companies.
Open Standards, Community Governance and the Open Container Project: A Fitting End to the Container Wars
At Red Hat, we have not been shy about our dedication to and leadership of open standards when it comes to enterprise technology. This started with Linux, then moved into many enterprise and cloud technologies, and today has quickly expanded into the burgeoning world of containers. In application containers, this dedication takes the form of:
Backing Docker as the de facto standard format at a very early stage
Today, we are making the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server for ARM Development Preview 7.1 available to all current and future members of the Red Hat ARM Partner Early Access Program as well as their end users as an unsupported development platform, providing a common standards-based operating system for existing 64-bit ARM hardware. Beyond
We are pleased to announce the general availability of Red Hat JBoss Data Grid 6.5, the next version of our high performance in-memory data store, which introduces new capabilities and feature enhancements around overall product performance, remote data cache deployments, and deeper integration with other products in our middleware portfolio. In addition, version 6.5 adds support for the JCache caching API, JSR-107, in both Library mode and Client-Server mode.
Next week we will be at GEOINT 2015 in Washington, D.C., showcasing technologies to help make geospatial systems more secure, mobile, and container-ready. We've long been committed to the geospatial intelligence space, collaborating with partners and customers to bring open source innovation to geo-intelligence initiatives for more than a decade.
