Innovations in Red Hat’s management portfolio
To accelerate deployments of Red Hat-powered cloud environments, the company has announced new innovations in its management portfolio. The company’s latest releases of Red Hat Satellite and Red Hat CloudForms enable enterprises get greater control of their hybrid cloud infrastructures. They also push automation and simplify ongoing infrastructure management.
“Being able to scale and deploy more quickly are key capabilities of digital transformation, where enterprises embrace emerging digital technologies to fuel differentiated products and services. With this announcement, Red Hat continues to build out its management offerings based upon the powerful automation capabilities of Ansible, helping customers to adopt new technologies while maintaining greater control over their hybrid cloud infrastructures,” shared Joe Fitzgerald, vice president and GM - management, Red Hat.
The heterogeneous nature of modern enterprise computing can often require a new type of management solution, one that can improve scale, speed and stability while still providing a clear picture across disparate infrastructures. The latest releases of Red Hat Satellite and Red Hat CloudForms help address these needs. They provide enhanced integration with Red Hat Insights and Red Hat Ansible Tower,
for an automation-centric approach to IT management. The integrations are aimed at enabling users to not only identify critical risks, but also create enterprise change plans and automatically generate Ansible playbooks to remediate those risks.
By deepening the integration of Ansible technology across its management portfolio, Red Hat aims to better enable organisations to take a more agile and consistent approach to managing Red Hat environments and hybrid infrastructure.
With automation as a foundational capability, Red Hat Satellite 6.3 and Red Hat CloudForms 4.6 can help organisations to speed IT deployments and updates via improved provisioning while maintaining enhanced stability and performance. Red Hat Satellite 6.3 also provides greater flexibility for hybrid cloud computing with the addition of support for Satellite and Satellite Capsule Server running on Amazon EC2. Its customers are now able to manage their Red Hat infrastructure on Amazon EC2 with the backing of Red Hat’s global customer support.
