OpenShift is a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) product from Red Hat, Inc., a leading open source technology software outfit based in Raleigh, North Carolina. OpenShift is both a cloud platform and a free application that you can run on your hardware.
Just in time for the release of Icehouse, the latest and greatest version of the OpenStack open source cloud computing platform, Dell and Red Hat (RHT) have partnered to deliver new private cloud OpenStack deployment solutions for the enterprise.
Red Hat has announced that OpenShift, an enterprise-ready PaaS product designed to be installed on-premise within customer datacenters or private, public or hybrid clouds, is now available. OpenShift can be used to streamline and standardize developer workflows, facilitating and increasing IT service delivery velocity, which in turn affects the productivity of businesses.
Red Hat updates the OpenShift Online service every month and releases OpenShift Enterprise three to four times per year, Badani said. One area that differs between the Enterprise and Online editions is the installation of the PaaS.
In today’s IT environment, more organizations are moving toward the hybrid enterprise. The typical enterprise is transforming into a mix of on-premises applications and cloud-based services, with core applications and data running in private data centers and others running in the public cloud.
Catbird 6.0 enhances the security of OpenStack private and hybrid clouds through automated security policies, providing compliance assurance for enterprises. Enterprise adoption of OpenStack is taking off, and value-added security solutions for the open source cloud computing operating system are close behind.
