Red Hat has introduced additional hybrid, private and public cloud administration features into the new version of the company’s enterprise cloud-based management service.
CloudForms 3.0 is designed to work with the Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform, Amazon Web Services, Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization and VMware vSphere, Red Hat said Tuesday.
The company designed the software to help users administer and operate cloud platforms on OpenStack, as well as to integrate with other cloud environments to centralize management.
“Red Hat offers a cloud portfolio to build private and public clouds including an enterprise-ready OpenStack for cloud infrastructure, Platform-as-a-Service with OpenShift by Red Hat, open software-defined storage with Red Hat Storage, and CloudForms for hybrid cloud management,” said Bryan Che, general manager for cloud at Red Hat.
CloudForms is also designed as a virtual appliance to automate and administer workloads using information technology workflow procedures and self-service portals, as well as to evaluate, monitor and apply quotas for usage.
Red Hat also added Amazon Web Services support to CloudForms, aiming to users manage both their private and public cloud infrastructures.
The updated cloud management offering is included within the Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure along with Enterprise Virtualization, and Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform.
