OpenStack, Red Hat and the Cloud System Software Opportunity
Today’s virtualization market is moving towards a layer of software above the hypervisor - called “cloud system software” - which abstracts across large pools of compute, storage and networking rather than from a single server. This type of software is becoming widely available in the market for enterprises to deploy on-premise and create infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) private clouds.
OpenStack is an open-source cloud system software that is gaining broad participation from the IT industry. And, as with other source projects like Linux, it is becoming available in a wide range of forms.
This whitepaper will help you learn more about OpenStack and how it offers an open alternative to proprietary systems. Read on, and you’ll also learn how Red Hat is applying its experience in commercializing open source Linux to create an enterprise-ready distribution of OpenStack.
