ATLANTA—Red Hat is advancing its cloud efforts today with an open-source community endeavor to manage cloud deployments and collaboration with storage vendor NetApp for the OpenStack cloud platform.
Red Hat is collaborating with NetApp on a new reference implementation of OpenStack. The reference architecture will combine Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 5 (which is based on the recent OpenStack Icehouse release) and NetApp storage, Radhesh Balakrishnan, general manager of virtualization and OpenStack at Red Hat, explained to eWEEK. The reference architecture does not add new software bits to OpenStack, he added.
