With so many advantages an Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud provides businesses, it’s great to see a transformation of IT happening across nearly all industries and markets. Nearly every enterprise is taking advantage of an “as-a-service” cloud in some form or another. And with this new infrastructure, it’s now more important than ever to remember the critical role that management plays within this mix. Oddly enough, it is sometimes considered a second priority when customers begin investigating the benefits of an IaaS cloud, but quickly becomes your first priority when running one.
At Red Hat, we believe that management plays a critical role in this next-generation datacenter. And we believe cloud management should be open, agile, and integrated. Let us explain how we are integrating several critical management capabilities to let you take OpenStack to it’s fullest potential.
