Red Hat OpenStack products now available
The Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure and Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform products, which are built around OpenStack Grizzly, have now become available. Both were announced a month ago and combine various Red Hat products that are designed to help businesses get set up running an IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) cloud.
Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure includes the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization (RHEV) software, the Red Hat CloudForms system management software and the Red Hat OpenStack IaaS software. The listed price for the cheapest variant with no guest licences is $2,800 per year and processor socket pair; the most expensive one costs $6,000. Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform includes the Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) Linux distribution and Red Hat OpenStack; prices range between $2,150 and $4,500. Red Hat OpenStack will not be available separately – the product web page states that the software is still in its evaluation phase.
As well as the two bundles, Red Hat Enterprise Virtualisation (RHEV) 3.2 has now also been released. The software for managing and operating hosts for virtualisation costs $1,000 per year with standard support, and $1,500 with premium support.
