Red Hat delivers a complete, open software foundation for CSPs. Red Hat OpenStack Platform provides the foundation to build a private or public IaaS cloud on top of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. It offers a massively scalable, fault-tolerant platform for the development of cloud-enabled workloads.
|Relevancy to NFVI/VIM||
NFVI is built on Red Hat OpenStack Platform and is the foundation for CSPs’ network transformation projects. Red Hat CloudForms can be used to present information from multiple VIMs. Red Hat Enterprise Linux is a co-engineered host and guest OS.
The future of Telco is open: Red Hat’s open telco framework connects three essential platforms- data management, application development and infrastructure- on which modern CSPs rely for their digital transformation. Red Hat’s NFV Solution, based on contributions to OpenStack, KVM, and DPDK, is open source and standards-based; it underpins the framework and is strengthened by Red Hat’s broad ecosystem of certified partners to provide a stable and interoperable foundation on which to build.
