Open source software provider Red Hat has started new initiative called On-Ramp to Enterprise OpenStack to increase the adoption of OpenStack by enterprises.
As part of the project, the company has partnered with Intel to impart knowledge on capabilities of Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform running on Intel Architecture.
The partnership will also be responsible for simplifying analysis and validation of Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform for organisations' private and hybrid cloud initiatives.
Red Hat Virtualization general manager Radhesh Balakrishnan said like Linux in its early days, collaboration among technology industry leaders can help foster enterprise adoption of OpenStack.
"As Red Hat's OpenStack vision and solutions gain momentum, On-Ramp to Enterprise OpenStack represents the next level of our collaboration with Intel, and I am excited about the opportunity we mutually face to help demystify OpenStack and show enterprise organisations its true potential," Balakrishnan added.
Intel Open Source Technology Center vice president and general manager Imad Sousou said, "The On-Ramp to Enterprise OpenStack program for private, public, and hybrid cloud deployments is a natural extension of Intel and Red Hat's long-standing collaboration in enterprise Linux."
The On-Ramp to Enterprise OpenStack programme's two components include Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform on Intel Architecture TestFlight and On-Ramp to Enterprise OpenStack Road Tour.
