Red Hat OpenStack Platform 16.2 Now Generally Available
KUBECON + CLOUDNATIVECON NA - Red Hat (News - Alert), Inc., the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced the general availability of Red Hat OpenStack Platform 16.2, the latest version of its highly-scalable and agile cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) platform. Designed to help organizations succeed in a hybrid cloud world, Red Hat OpenStack Platform 16.2 delivers tighter integration with Red Hat OpenShift, so customers can run both new and traditional applications in parallel with improved network capacity, security features, storage, performance and efficiency.
Organizations working towards digital transformation are often faced with balancing the management of both container and virtual machine (VM) workloads - even when new applications are delivered as cloud-native. With communication service providers (CSPs) in particular, Red Hat often sees its customers and partners working to run virtualized network functions (VNFs) and cloud-native network functions (CNFs) side-by-side to achieve performance similar to that of bare-metal environments. To help tackle this demand, Red Hat OpenStack Platform 16.2 adds new capabilities for:
Bringing more connectivity to the edge
To help better address this need, Red Hat OpenStack Platform 16.2 adds availability zone awareness through Open Virtual Networking (OVN). This enables operators to set up nodes in groups, based on geographic location, power sources and potential for downtime - a schedule can then be set so that edge environments can have access to the node with the greatest availability. This helps to support remote edge sites and provide local services while also increasing performance, decreasing latency of data plane traffic and improving overall edge resiliency.
