1st May 2014 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

Dell-Red hatBangalore, May 1st, 2014: Dell and Red Hat Inc. (NYSE: RHT), a leading provider of open source solutions, have jointly announced the availability of co-engineered, enterprise-grade, private cloud solutions based on OpenStack, the Dell Red Hat Cloud Solution, powered by Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform. The companies also have extended their collaboration to enable the compatibility, portability and reliability for Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offerings that enterprise customers need as they build public, private and hybrid cloud environments.

Through the new private cloud solutions and extended alliance, Dell and Red Hat aim to provide enterprise customers at various stages of OpenStack evaluation and use with an enterprise-grade software life cycle experience, and greater stability, predictability and rigor to the community-published OpenStack updates.
Dell and Red Hat have co-engineered OpenStack-based cloud solutions to address enterprise customer demand for more flexible, elastic and dynamic IT services to support and host non-business critical applications – including mobile, social and analytics – and dev/test environments. These solutions are available today, and have been optimized and validated by Dell and Red Hat to provide rapid on-ramps to OpenStack private clouds including Proof of Concept Configuration and Pilot Configuration.

For customers seeking massive scale-out designs, Dell Cloud Services will engage with customers to design and architect OpenStack-based clouds, building upon the years of experience Dell and Red Hat have with OpenStack technologies.

Red Hat’s PaaS offering, OpenShift, is built on the solid foundation of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and provides secure, scalable, Linux Container-based multi-tenancy via Red Hat Enterprise Linux Gears. Dell and Red Hat will work together within the OpenShift community to build OpenShift solutions that provide support for enterprise application developers looking for efficient ways to make their current and future data and applications more portable and accessible.

Dell’s OpenShift integration is a necessary step toward Dell and Red Hat co-engineering next-generation Linux Container enhancements from Docker. This award-winning PaaS platform from Red Hat, and solutions to be co-engineered by Dell and Red Hat, will aim to enable compatibility for PaaS offerings within enterprise environments, and developers to write applications using any language to be portable across public, private and hybrid cloud environments.

The OpenShift-based solution will provide support for customers to use within their frameworks and databases, through the use of Docker-based images and cartridges, with the goal of enabling integration with any other platform that supports Docker, including public clouds. This capability gives developers the freedom to choose their application development language to build a portable application that can exist in any cloud environment.

Dell will integrate these capabilities across its hardware and software offerings to enable a complete PaaS solution from Linux to OpenStack to OpenShift, including platform management.

Dell and Red Hat have partnered for more than 14 years to bring global customers value by collaborating on Red Hat solutions across Dell’s enterprise offerings. Recently, Dell announced a new Active Fabric Controller and efforts to accelerate Network Functions Virtualization(NFV) solutions into the sector through industry consortiums and collaboration with industry partners such as Red Hat to help customers transform and modernize data center infrastructures.

With this announcement, Dell and Red Hat are strengthening their longstanding collaboration and commitment to help businesses confidently embrace open source-based cloud computing models. Customers worldwide will not only benefit from the co-engineered solutions, but the companies’ combined cloud expertise, enterprise innovation, and dedicated support and portfolio of services. The alliance with Red Hat complements Dell’s cloud strategy of offering customers choice and flexibility in pursuing and deploying the right cloud platform for their unique needs.
Paul Cormier, President, Products and Technologies, Red Hat , said, “Cloud innovation is happening first in open source, and what we’re seeing from global customers is growing demand for open hybrid cloud solutions that meet a wide variety of requirements. Whether it is enterprise-grade private cloud solutions, or DevOps solutions to build applications for both public and private clouds, through our expanded work with Dell, we’re focused on delivering the flexible solutions that meet these varied needs.”

Sam Greenblatt, Vice President, Enterprise Solutions Group Technology Strategy, Dell, said, “Dell is a long-time supporter of OpenStack and this important extension of our commitment to the community now will include work for OpenShift and Docker, which we think will help customers with choice in cloud resources, and application development and optimization. We are building on our long history with open source and will apply that expertise to our new cloud solutions and co-engineering work with Red Hat.”
