Currently, many companies began to look a hybrid cloud implementations. It is not independent because the conditions of cloud computing is increasingly complex.
Red Hat, as one of the companies that provide solutions that said, the hybrid cloud mix of private cloud combined with the public cloud.
Hybrid cloud itself comes from the demands of the enterprise who want the flexibility of cloud computing, but with the level of security in the style of a dedicated infrastructure.
Many technology vendors are trying to offer its cloud solutions respectively. Generally, the vendor claims his is the best solution in the implementation of the hybrid cloud. But the drawback is, almost all of which are proprietary software.
This means that users are forced to use it according to the standard that is applied to each vendor. In fact, sometimes the user is also required to buy the devices required by the solution offered.
What if the user can develop their own platform which uses the hybrid cloud? Well, this is trying to offer Red Hat. Known for the reliability of open source solutions besutannya, Linux distributions invites users to work on own solution you want to use the hybrid cloud.
According to Gordon Haff, Cloud Evangelist Red Hat, open source offers a high flexibility for enterprise IT offenders because it provides flexibility development. “(Open source) invites developers for an all-out in the (implementation) cloud,” he said at the office of Red Hat in Ciputra World Jakarta.
“Open source also eliminates the existing restrictions on proprietary software. In addition, 76% of companies are now beginning to assume importance in the open source cloud infrastructure,” he added.
He also mentions Google, Amazon, and Facebook which debuted using open source, and still continues to develop until today with Red Hat.
Subject doubt some companies who doubted the security of cloud computing, Haff said the use of open source developers can add the kind of protection that limits between the cloud and access devices.
If you do not want to bother, Haff added Red Hat also has a security solution that can fill the gap.
Furthermore, as the development of cloud computing, virtualization hardware Haff predict the future will also be popular. Because this solution is considered to be more efficient, especially in terms of price and flexibility. Moreover, when compared to a dedicated infrastructure where the users are not required to disburse a little if you want to upgrade.
Red Hat itself as the company exists in the world of open source has recently announced its latest enterprise solutions Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7. This solution be the answer as the foundation for the hybrid cloud-based open-source or the start-called open hybrid cloud.
“So Red Hat offers a Platform as a Service via RHEL 7. Furthermore, developers can develop them according to business needs,” he concluded
