Dell and Red Hat Release Joint Enterprise-grade Private Cloud Solution

By Nathesh, TMCnet Contributor

Dell and Red Hat (News - Alert) have entered into a collaborative agreement to jointly design and develop new enterprise-grade private cloud solutions based on the OpenStack platform. The companies look to enable customers to seamlessly migrate to and deploy highly-scalable, open-source cloud computing models using Dell (News - Alert) infrastructure and the Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack platform.

The Red Hat Enteprise Linux OpenStack platform is designed to be a stable, reliable, and secure foundation for demanding, large-scale enterprise applications. With Dell, the companies will be better able to offer customers open, flexible and scalable technology to build, use and control cloud infrastructures.

Dell explained that its cloud computing offering not only improves business processes and operational efficiency but reinvents the role of IT. The company thus looks to simplify users’ migration to open-source cloud computing platforms, supporting their transition with its vast expertise in building cloud environments.

Paul Cormier, president of products and technologies at Red Hat said, “Our collaboration with Dell keeps getting better and today’s announcement to co-engineer OpenStack solutions marks a significant milestone for both companies and customers. Just as we successfully collaborated with Dell to establish Red Hat Enterprise Linux as an enterprise industry standard, we’re now extending our collaboration to help establish Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform as the standard for open private cloud in the enterprise. Dell and Red Hat are committed to jointly developing and delivering enterprise-grade OpenStack offerings to help customers pursue private cloud today, and advanced computing models in the future.”

Dell and Red Hat will also jointly contribute code to the OpenStack community and collaborate on Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 4.

"Dell has been a long-time advocate and participant in the open source and OpenStack communities, pushing the charter of an open alternative to proprietary, enterprise computing systems,” noted Marius Haas, chief commercial officer and president of enterprise solutions at Dell. “Our agreement to co-engineer OpenStack solutions with Red Hat takes our commitment a step further in helping customers obtain and deploy OpenStack solutions for an enterprise-grade, private cloud infrastructure to meet their evolving business needs. We will extend our work with Red Hat to apply our combined experience in commercializing open source for the benefit of our mutual customers as well as the open-source community on its development of networking, storage and compute capabilities."
