With OpenStack evolving so quickly, a key challenge is how to take advantage of the robust and vibrant options for customization from the OpenStack community without creating unnecessary complexity, and forcing customers into a locked-down platform. Our co-engineering work with Red Hat and others solves this dilemma with the release of Dell Red Hat OpenStack cloud solution V 5.0.
Dell Red Hat Cloud Solution V 5.0 brings together a core architecture with selected extensions creating an adaptive infrastructure that integrates the best innovations from the OpenStack community with proven Dell and Red Hat platforms. The extensions are thoroughly validated, just like the core architecture, to ensure a consistent seamless cloud environment that just works.
Today we offer the following validated extensions:
With our core architecture plus validated extension approach, we are embracing and enhancing the openness and flexibility of OpenStack. Each validated extension is supported with documented guidance for implementation and this documentation is freely available here on the Dell Tech Center community web site. We are looking forward to expanding this portfolio of innovative extensions to our core architecture as new capabilities in OpenStack become ready for deployment in the enterprise.
