Red Hat Logo

Red Hat exists because Linus Torvalds created an operating system that was open to all. Red Hat can successfully share, support, and sell Red Hat Enterprise Linux—and many other open source cloud, storage, and middleware technologies—because of a foundation built on transparency, participation, and community.

Managing a complex, hybrid IT environment can require multiple management tools, redundant policy implementations, and extra staff to handle the operations. Red Hat® CloudForms simplifies IT, providing unified management and operations in a hybrid environment.

As your IT infrastructure progresses from traditional virtualization toward an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) model, CloudForms evolves, protecting your investments and providing consistent user experience and functionality.

Because OpenStack is dependent on its underlying Linux operating system for everything from service operation and access, to hardware resources, to system performance, stability, and security, Red Hat OpenStack Platform delivers the next-generation core IaaS and secondary IaaS+ infrastructure for your private or public cloud.


Red Hat Ansible Tower

Remote Job Execution with Ansible TowerAnsible is a radically simple IT automation engine that automates cloud provisioning, configuration management, application deployment, intra-service orchestration, and many other IT needs.

Being designed for multi-tier deployments since day one, Ansible models your IT infrastructure by describing how all of your systems interrelate, rather than just managing one system at a time.

It uses no agents and no additional custom security infrastructure, so it's easy to deploy - and most important, it uses a very simple language (YAML, in the form of Ansible Playbooks) that allows you to describe your automation jobs in a way that approaches plain English.
