Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure
A private IaaS cloud on your terms and timeline
You might also be intrigued by OpenStack®. It has the potential to massively scale at a much lower cost than you pay proprietary vendors. But you've spent years building your current infrastructure. Rip and replace isn't an option. So what's an IT organization to do?
Build and manage a private cloud with a single, low-cost product
Red Hat® Cloud Infrastructure lets you both build and manage an open, private Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud based on datacenter virtualization and management technologies. It also offers an on-ramp to a highly scalable, public cloud-like infrastructure based on OpenStack.
With Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure, you pay far less than you would for alternative solutions, yet get far more. It works with your existing infrastructure, giving you choice—not vendor lock-in—and full control of your strategic direction.
A flexible, integrated private cloud product
Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure is a single-subscription offering made up of 3 products. Deploy any combination of these fully integrated components in whatever way you need.
Cost-effective, managed virtualization
Combining Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization with Red Hat CloudForms gives you a secure, full-featured virtualization solution. The included heterogeneous management tool spans Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization, VMware vSphere, and Microsoft Hyper-V.
Private cloud for traditional workloads
Do you have high service-level agreement (SLA) workloads that demand maximum uptime? Blend the high-availability features of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization with the broad cloud management in CloudForms. Use this solution to create and extend a cloud infrastructure made of virtualization technologies from multiple providers, and even public cloud providers—all managed from 1 interface.
On-ramp to OpenStack for traditional, cloud, and hybrid workloads
Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform and CloudForms provide a massively scalable public cloud-like infrastructure with management, self-service provisioning, chargeback, and more. This solution lets you:
Benefits at a glance
Flexibility: The 3 integrated components work alongside existing infrastructure investments and let you build a cloud tailored to your environment and needs.
Choice and interoperability: With open Red Hat products, vendor lock-in is a thing of the past.
Heterogeneous coverage: CloudForms manages multiple virtualization products, a growing list of public cloud providers—like Amazon Web Services—and Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform.
Confidence: Trust Red Hat's leadership in the OpenStack and Linux communities.
High performance: We've earned top virtualization benchmarks for performance and scalability in SPECvirt.
Low price: Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure offers a broad solution at a cost much lower than proprietary alternatives.
