Red Hat Open Source Solutions

The Secure, Flexible Foundation of ORockCloud

A “Pure Play” Red Hat Open Source Cloud

ORock believes the open source movement is a catalyst that will shape the future of enterprise information technology. That’s why we worked side-by-side with Red Hat engineers to build our core offering, ORockCloud, as an open source cloud using Red Hat technologies. This certified Red Hat cloud is the first and only cloud based on the Red Hat OpenStack Platform to receive authorization at the Moderate Impact Level from the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP).

Red Hat is the world’s leading provider of enterprise open source solutions, using a community-powered approach to deliver high-performing Linux, cloud, container, and Kubernetes technologies. Red Hat helps organizations standardize across environments, develop cloud-native applications, and integrate, automate, secure, and manage complex environments with award-winning support, training, and consulting services.

As a pure-play Red Hat cloud, ORockCloud incorporates a variety of Red Hat open source solutions across the transport, session, presentation, and application layers (4 through 7) of the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) model. These include:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Red Hat OpenStack Platform
Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization
Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure
Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform
Red Hat Ceph Storage
Red Hat Gluster Storage
Red Hat Ansible Tower
Red Hat CloudForms
Red Hat Satellite

The Benefits of Open Source Technology

Adoption of open source technology continues to grow, and the trend is transforming how enterprises buy and use IT. The community-driven approach inherent in open source software development has yielded solutions that are more innovative, secure, reliable and transparent than traditional proprietary technologies.

As a Red Hat open source cloud, ORockCloud provides the best of both worlds: a secure, controlled, reliable environment (supported and hardened by Red Hat) that benefits from the continued innovation, transparency, reliability, testing, and development being undertaken within numerous open source communities. The result is a cloud solution that offers:

  • Superior security starting with Red Hat’s Security Enhanced Linux operating system and a suite of solutions that are continually vetted for vulnerabilities and hardened by Red Hat engineers
  • Enhanced flexibility and modularity that enable both you and ORock to easily capitalize on innovations and improvements
  • Avoidance of vendor lock-in to minimize your exposure to price increases and vendor control
  • Smooth, simplified transitions from your existing Red Hat on-premise environments into the cloud
