We talked about the various layers from the bottom up and there was a reason to this story that is clear today as Red Hat launches the Red Hat Cloud Suite.
Red Hat Cloud Suite is the first of what will be a family of Red Hat Suites, which are a combination of multiple Red Hat products optimized to work together and solve a specific customer scenario, with increased ease of use and management for customers.
What is Red Hat Cloud Suite
At its infrastructure foundation, Red Hat Cloud Suite builds a private cloud based either on Red Hat OpenStack Platform with public cloud-like scalability as well as Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization, which is based on high-performance virtualization. Both of these underlying choices provide secure and scalable foundations for hosting the development platform known as OpenShift Enterprise. OpenShift automates the development and administration of container-based applications.
The solution also leverages a SaaS-based risk management tool, Red Hat Insights, that collects infrastructure analytics, enabling customers to quickly and proactively manage technical risks before they impact operations.
App Dev on the Red Hat Cloud Suite is the OpenShift Enterprise experience.
Red Hat Cloud Suite users can also make use of Red Hat Ceph Storage, an open, massively scalable, highly flexible software-defined storage system that is now bundled with Red Hat OpenStack Platform. Red Hat Ceph Storage is designed for commodity hardware and overwhelmingly preferred by OpenStack users because of its seamless integration with OpenStack’s modular architecture and components for ephemeral and persistent storage.
App Dev on Red Hat Cloud Suite
We have been busy putting together the following example projects so that you can get a taste of the Red Hat Cloud Suite from the comfort of your own local machine, no data center needed. The window to this world for application developers is OpenShift Enterprise, so we have provided this through the Red Hat Container Development Kit (CDK) and JBoss middleware examples.
