Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"SAIC's ACE Laboratory will serve as the foundation for an open community, providing an environment to maximize public and private cooperation focused on solving complex operational and computational problems. The laboratory provides physical and virtual environments for hands-on collaboration between SAIC, other contractors, small businesses, information technology vendors and government employees. Through emerging technology exploration and innovative solution demonstration, the ACE Laboratory aims to foster collaboration and information sharing, promote cloud computing best practices and deliver low-cost, enterprise-scale "create once, optimally manage and reuse often" solutions.

SAIC and Red Hat bring commercial patterns and practices specifically engineered to reduce cost, enable more agile service delivery and allow DoD customers to overcome barriers to cloud adoption, including shortage of skills, lack of interoperability within existing information technology architectures and complexities of service-level objective achievement. ACE Laboratory collaborators will learn how Red Hat's modular and open technology portfolio, designed to run consistently across physical servers, virtual platforms and private and public clouds, can be integrated into their cloud architecture. Organizations working to develop and implement a cloud strategy can gain the knowledge and practical experience needed to select open source components for private Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), develop applications using PaaS and achieve mission and business objectives by delivering and consuming Software-as-a-Service (SaaS).
