Red Hat invests in VMTurbo to boost OpenStack biz

Red Hat, a provider of open source software solutions, has made a strategic investment in VMTurbo, a demand-driven control platform for the software-defined data center.

VMTurbo plans to use the funds to develop its control platform, improve adoption of demand-driven control in OpenStack deployments, and increase support to VMTurbo’s growing customer base.

Charles Crouchman, CTO of VMTurbo, said: “Our demand-driven control platform, tightly integrated with Red Hat CloudForms and the Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure, makes OpenStack deployments more resilient, performant and agile.”

VMTurbo and Red Hat have worked on contributions to core OpenStack projects such as OpenStack Telemetry (Ceilometer), OpenStack Compute (Nova), as well as ManageIQ and the Java SDK. Tight integration with Red Hat CloudForms will position VMTurbo as a demand-driven control solution for OpenStack deployments.

“Red Hat’s investment in VMTurbo will help accelerate the adoption of OpenStack in enterprises seeking greater visibility and control of available resources in IaaS clouds,” said Joe Fitzgerald, vice president and general manager of Cloud Management at Red Hat.
