UC4 has announced a collaboration with Red Hat to provide enhanced, enterprise-ready, open virtualization and cloud solutions with predictive automated provisioning capabilities. The independent IT automation software company aims to lower costs and lower manual effort required to initiate and orchestrate virtualized infrastructure, as well as the ability for IT departments to do ‘more with less’ and achieve more aggressive service level agreements.
UC4’s collaboration with Red Hat will offer its enterprise automation technology along with Red Hat’s open source solutions providing the flexibility to manage virtual resource requirements as well as private and public cloud infrastructures with built-in automated provisioning for customers. UC4’s application awareness and business process automation capabilities will also enable creation of virtual infrastructures that support applications and business processes much more efficiently. The move is part of an effort to to cut IT spend while bringing additional applications to business users through greater efficiency.
“Collaborating with Red Hat, an industry leader in open source virtualization and cloud solutions, allows us to work closely on our advanced enterprise automation technology to help open virtualization and cloud-based solutions take hold,” said Siddharth Mallannagari, SVP Strategy and Corporate Development, Alliances at UC4. “Open solutions are an important part of offering customers cost-effective choices for meeting their virtualization and cloud needs while avoiding vendor lock-in with proprietary solutions. This collaboration strengthens UC4’s overall virtualization management offering as we continue our strategy of support for heterogeneous IT environments.”
