Cloud Computing: Cloud.com Partners with Red Hat

Enables enterprises & service providers to take advantage of recent advancements around virtualization, performance & security

Cloud.com, a provider of open source private and public cloud computing software, on Wednesday announced that Cloud.com CloudStack will provide support for the new Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 operating platform, which provides a strong foundation for today's cloud deployments. This new support enables enterprises and service providers to take advantage of recent advancements around virtualization, performance and security from one of the world’s most trusted IT platforms and extend it into the cloud using their existing applications or management tools.

“Cloud.com is a driving force behind the development and innovation of open source cloud computing platforms,” said Jim Totton, vice president, Platform Business Unit at Red Hat. “With both of our companies' leadership in the cloud computing market, coupled with our shared vision of bringing enterprise-ready open source technologies to customers, Cloud.com is a great partner for Red Hat’s cloud computing initiatives. Together, our technologies, including today's availability of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, will be a powerful combination to enhance our users’ cloud capabilities."

Cloud.com’s integration with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 underscores its commitment to supporting a wide range of enterprise operating environments and virtualization technologies to give Cloud.com’s users maximum flexibility and portability when architecting their cloud deployments. Through this partnership, Cloud.com will be testing and certifying Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 as both a supported platform for the CloudStack management server as well as a fully supported guest within a public or private CloudStack deployment. This means that IT administrators can bridge their physical and cloud deployments with the same IT management tools, increasing efficiency, reliability and interoperability in the datacenter. At the same time, users will have access to the same robust ecosystem of partners and developers that they use in their existing Red Hat Enterprise Linux deployments as they make the transition to the cloud.

Cloud.com delivers all of the essential components used to build, deploy and manage multi-tier and multi-tenant cloud applications in a fully integrated software package. Through the integration of the Cloud.com CloudStack with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, customers will have the benefits of an open environment that interoperates with existing IT initiatives.

“Our technology partnership with Red Hat is crucial for delivering a fully integrated, enterprise-class cloud computing environment that interoperates with existing datacenter strategies,” said Peder Ulander, CMO at Cloud.com. “Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 enables Cloud.com to deliver an enterprise cloud computing environment in which customers can continue to use the familiar tools and applications in their current IT operations. We expect this to greatly reduce complexity while increasing the agility and ROI that users experience with the cloud. ”

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
