Red Hat Launches OpenShift PaaS

Red Hat (NYSE:RHT) is expanding its cloud initiatives with new Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) effort.

The new CloudForms platform is the IaaS piece providing compute resource management. CloudForms also includes application management tools that will help bring applications into the cloud as well as manage applications in the cloud.

The other key part of Red Hat's new cloud push is the OpenShift Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) technology. The cornerstone of OpenShift is the Makara technology Red Hat acquired in November 2010.

"OpenShift is Red Hat's open source approach to platform as a service," Isaac Roth, PaaS Master at Red Hat said during the press conference.
