Red Hat OpenStack Platform gives enterprises an open foundation to deploy, scale, and manage a private cloud.
Supermicro and Red Hat OpenStack Platform solutions combine the power of Red Hat OpenStack Platform technology and industry leading compute, storage, and networking systems manufactured by Supermicro to deliver a foundation for building private, hybrid, or public IaaS cloud environments. It offers a highly scalable, fault-tolerant, production-ready, turnkey platform for running cloud-enabled workloads.
Supermicro and Red Hat OpenStack Platform solutions are built on Red Hat® Enterprise Linux®, a secure, reliable, and supported operating system. It is enhanced by integrating with other Red Hat products such as Red Hat Ansible® Automation, Red Hat Satellite and Red Hat Ceph® Storage. A Supermicro and Red Hat OpenStack Platform solution also makes an ideal foundation for Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) deployment with Red Hat OpenShift® Container Platform — a platform for building, deploying, and managing container-based applications consistently across hybrid cloud and multi-cloud infrastructures.
Supermicro and Red Hat OpenStack Platform solutions integrate high density compute and storage platforms to achieve the best performance and scalability. It takes advantage of Intel scalable processors, high performance NVMe, and 25G networking. The scale-out architecture can dynamically expand capacity across cloud environments to meet demand peaks without downtime or complex processes.
