In Red Hat, Veritas: Firm backs OpenStack convergence play

Voice through your Linux server? You might want this

Red Hat is working with information management firm Veritas on data backup and storage in OpenStack clouds.

The duo will work together to delver what they call “predictable” quality of service to OpenStack applications and workloads “regardless of scale”.

Veritas will work on integration of the Red Hat OpenStack Platform for data protection.

Red Hat’s general manager for OpenStack Radhesh Balakrishnan said in a statement he is “delighted” to collaborate with the storage firm.

He reckoned it would give enterprise customers more choice of storage management, resiliency and data protection running traditional tier 1 workloads running on Red Hat OpenStack Platform.

Red Had is driving hard on OpenStack with the firm embracing OpenStack for more than simply floating clouds on its Linux. It wants customers to convert to software-defined networks running on its Linux and OpenStack. The firm in August released Red Hat Virtualization 4 that ran a full version of OpenStack’s networking project Neutron for the first time.

Red Hat is attempting to provide a service for customers who are willing to run their voice and networking traffic across the same Linux server as their apps and VMs. ®
