Red Hat accelerates hybrid cloud deployment with OpenStack Platform 14

Red Hat

Red Hat announced Red Hat OpenStack Platform 14, the latest version of Red Hat’s Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solution.

Red Hat OpenStack Platform 14 addresses the industry’s need for a multi-cloud or hybrid cloud model. Gartner estimated that by 2020, 75 percent of organizations will have deployed a multicloud or hybrid cloud model

Based on the OpenStack “Rocky” community release, Red Hat OpenStack Platform 14 more tightly integrates with Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, enhancing the support for Kubernetes to enterprise-grade OpenStack.

With capabilities to improve bare-metal resource consumption and enhance deployment automation, the new platform can deliver a single infrastructure offering that can lay the foundation for traditional, virtualized and cloud-native workloads, Red Hat said.

As organizations increasingly turn to containers and cloud-native applications, enterprise-grade Kubernetes on OpenStack has emerged as a necessity for IT teams. Red Hat OpenStack Platform 14 can not only host Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform but also automate critical provisioning and scalability requirements for Red Hat’s enterprise Kubernetes platform.

Running emerging workloads on bare-metal servers offers enterprises the ability to fully harness the power of cloud-native technologies with the processing power of modern hardware.

Red Hat OpenStack Platform 14 also extends integration with Red Hat Ansible Automation, making the deployment process easier than in previous versions.

The ecosystem is supported by enterprise business partners like Dell EMC, Intel, Lenovo, NetApp, and Rackspace, as well as telecommunications vendors like Cisco, Ericsson, Huawei, NEC, and Nokia, among others.

Red Hat OpenStack Platform 14 will be available in the coming weeks via the Red Hat Customer Portal and as a component of both Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure and Red Hat Cloud Suite.
