Red Hat up­grades CloudForms with en­hanced cloud sup­port

OpenSource For You - - Foss Bytes -

Red Hat is up­grad­ing the abil­i­ties of its hy­brid cloud man­age­ment of­fer­ings through CloudForms 4.2. The lat­est ver­sion ex­pands sup­port for mul­ti­ple cloud plat­forms.

The mix of phys­i­cal, vir­tual and cloud en­vi­ron­ments with con­tainer and mi­cro-ser­vices de­mands dif­fer­ent ca­pa­bil­i­ties. Red Hat has ad­dressed most of th­ese through CloudForms

4.2. Man­ag­ing hy­brid IT en­vi­ron­ments with Red Hat CloudForms is ef­fi­cient and re­spon­sive. Also, or­gan­i­sa­tions can save both time and costs by lev­er­ag­ing the sig­nif­i­cant im­prove­ments in the lat­est CloudForms.

Red Hat CloudForms 4.2 en­ables hy­brid cloud man­age­ment on Ama­zon Web Ser­vices (AWS) through an Ama­zon EC2 im­age.

The new re­lease has en­hanced the ca­pa­bil­i­ties of OpenS­tack through im­proved tenant man­age­ment as well as up­graded stor­age man­age­ment for OpenS­tack ob­jects. Like­wise, there are im­proved charge­back ca­pa­bil­i­ties for con­tain­ers run­ning on the Red Hat OpenShift Con­tainer Plat­form.

“There is no longer a ‘one-siz­e­fits-all’ IT en­vi­ron­ment, as many or­gan­i­sa­tions are seek­ing to lever­age the best ben­e­fits of phys­i­cal, vir­tual and cloud-based tech­nolo­gies.

Cou­pled with Linux con­tain­ers, only man­ag­ing one or two as­pects of th­ese hy­brid com­put­ing en­vi­ron­ments can lead to down­time or out­ages,” said

Joe Fitzgerald, vice pres­i­dent of man­age­ment, Red Hat, in a state­ment.

CloudForms is based on the open source Man­ageIQ project. This devel­op­ment sup­ports a wide range of plat­forms and can be cus­tomised for niche in­dus­tries or or­gan­i­sa­tions.
