Red Hat releases OpenShift source code

Open source software distributor Red Hat has released the source code for its OpenShift platform-as-a-service (PaaS) offering, allowing developers to run the platform on multiple cloud fabrics, including OpenStack.

Until now, OpenShift has only been available as a service on Amazon’s EC2 compute cloud. However, the release of the source code behind OpenShift means that developers can run the PaaS locally on their laptops, on a server behind their own firewalls, or in their own data centres.
