Red Hat to release enterprise OpenStack

Red Hat is making further inroads into open-source cloud computing by adding its tweaks to OpenStack, a software project intended  for building private and public clouds.  At the moment, there are few enterprise-grade distributions of the platform, but Red Hat CTO Brian Stevens said he feels the technology has now matured:

“The next release of OpenStack will be the right one to begin offering enterprise grade services,” he said.

The software will run on Red Hat Enterprise Linux and should be available early next year.
