Infrastructure consolidation for cloud & virtualization

Organizations in industries like energy, retail, banking, telecommunications, and the public sector increasingly rely on critical applications that must be deployed with limited space, budgetary constraints, and a scarcity of skilled IT staff. They must extend the reach of these applications from the data center core to the edge of the network.

Red Hat Hyperconverged Infrastructure solutions benefit from years of customer deployment and QE testing of the components. Today, they are containerized with Red Hat Data Services, streamlined with Red Hat Ansible® Automation Platform, tailored for specific use cases, and entirely open source.

Built on Red Hat Virtualization and Red Hat Gluster® Storage, Red Hat Hyperconverged Infrastructure for Virtualization provides a single support stack for virtual compute and virtual storage resources for departmental and lines-of-business teams, remote sites, DevTest, and others.

Red Hat Hyperconverged Infrastructure for Cloud is an integrated, containizerized system of Red Hat OpenStack Platform and Red Hat Ceph® Storage with common life cycle and support.
