What is Openstack?
Developers and technologists from around the world collaborate on OpenStack to create tools for building and managing public and private clouds. OpenStack’s development, distribution, and adoption are overseen by the OpenStack Foundation, an independent body providing shared resources
Linux and OpenStack—better together
OpenStack built for your IT demands
With Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform, you get all the benefits you expect from Red Hat Enterprise Linux, plus the fastest-growing cloud infrastructure platform from OpenStack—both co-engineered to work seamlessly together. 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 Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform delivers the next-generation core IaaS and secondary IaaS+ infrastructure for your private or public cloud.
Leading OpenStack functionality and performance
Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform enhances OpenStack with advanced features needed for cloud environments. OpenStack’s tight integration with its underlying Linux operating system is critical in deploying a stable, high-performing cloud environment. This integration gives you key advantages, including:
