Open source leader Red Hat Inc, leading provider of open source solutions, today announced developments in its cloud foundations portfolio that promotes consistency between enterprise applications and the cloud.
It also outlined a platform-as-a-service (PaaS) solution as part of its cloud foundations, a portfolio to promote consistency between enterprise applications and the cloud.
Gary Chen, research manager, enterprise virtualisation software at IDC, said, ''Our research shows that 80 per cent of enterprises cite the lack of interoperability standards as a challenge in adopting cloud computing services. With cloud foundations, Red Hat is on the right track with cloud by accelerating interoperability and portability to prevent cloud lock in."
Red Hat had introduced cloud foundations in June, 2010 during the Red Hat Summit in Boston.
Cloud foundations include Red Hat's comprehensive line of products for implementing a private cloud, coupled with a detailed reference architecture and implementation cookbook, consulting services and training offerings.
Its next release of cloud foundations seeks to provide comprehensive portability for customers with the delivery of new technologies and offerings.
