Open source solutions provider, Red Hat (NYSE: RHT), has introduced Red Hat Access Insights to provide its customers with operational analytics and expanded capabilities in Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure, Red Hat CloudForms, and Red Hat Satellite. The new solution adds new management features to optimize private, public and hybrid cloud deployments.
Red Hat Access Insights is a service designed to help customers proactively prevent and resolve issues impacting critical business operations. This new feature would provide IT managers and system administrators with better visibility into their Red Hat infrastructure, and focus on four critical areas: performance, availability, stability, and security.
The software can alert managers to potential issues – such as configuration problems or security vulnerabilities – within each of these areas so IT administrators can use the Red Hat Access Insights dashboard to identify, understand, and correct or intercept issues before any business impact occurs.
At the same time, Red Hat has also introduced updates to its management portfolio, including:
- General availability of Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure 6, the latest version of its comprehensive solution to support organizations on their journey from traditional datacenter virtualization to OpenStack-powered clouds, featuring a new, unified installation experience. The unified installer is designed to enable smoother deployment of a complete private cloud spanning infrastructure and management platforms and reducing the time and skills required to build a complete private cloud.
- Support for Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM)-based private clouds in Red Hat CloudForms, adding to CloudForms’ multi-platform support, spanning VMware vSphere, Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform, Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization, and Amazon Web Services (AWS).
- The beta availability of Red Hat Satellite 6.1, including new Docker registry functionality that enables users to define lifecycles for the popular Docker image format, increasing control and security for enterprises
- A preview of container management capabilities in Red Hat CloudForms, enabling customers to gain valuable insight into container based workloads running across multiple infrastructure providers including: Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform, VMware vSphere, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Hyper-V, and Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization. The new container features also integrate with Kubernetes, the container orchestration technology pioneered by Google and available in Red Hat Atomic Enterprise Platform and OpenShift Enterprise.
Red Hat Access Insights for Red Hat Enterprise Linux is supported in versions 6 and 7 and delivered through the Red Hat Customer Portal or Red Hat Satellite. It is available via an early adopter program, supported in Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure 6 and delivered through the Customer Portal or Red Hat CloudForms.
