That’s the aim of the new release of OpenStack by Red Hat. Organizations that run Red Hat OpenStack will be able to have more control over their virtualized environments using the new suite of tools alongside of OpenStack.
“The journey to the open private cloud has got multiple stages. We’ve got offerings to help you along every single step of the way and today we’ve refreshed all these offerings so you can take these capabilities into your environment and get to an open private cloud sooner rather than later.” says Red Hat General Manager of Virtualization Radesh Balakrishnan.
Balakrishnan did not hold back his excitement as he commented on Red Hat’s new offerings. In a statement, Balakrishnan wrote “Red Hat is excited about the updated offerings to meet the datacenter virtualization and elastic cloud needs of customers structuring their journey to an open hybrid cloud. These offerings are engineered to help build a more productive and efficient open private cloud and provide a more reliable infrastructure for IT and cloud operators. Now backed by the world’s largest OpenStack partner ecosystem, Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure helps IT to bridge datacenter infrastructure silos and more effectively meet user needs.”

By providing a solution that bridges different facets of virtualization and the cloud, Red Hat becomes an attractive option to those wanting to only use one vendor for everything in the on premises datacenter.
