Red Hat Continues Cloud Infrastructure Momentum With New Offerings, Industry-Leading Performance

Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE:RHT), the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced continued momentum for Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure, including a new industry-leading performance benchmark, the introduction of the Red Hat Certificate of Expertise in Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), and a Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Promotional Offering. Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure, a comprehensive offering designed to support organizations on their journey from traditional datacenter virtualization to OpenStack-powered clouds, has emerged as a high performing offering with greater value as organizations look to build and manage private cloud IaaS.

According to the latest cloud computing market overview analysis from 451 Research’s Market Monitor, IaaS is expected to grow at a 37 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) through 2016 (1). As cloud and IaaS adoption grows, research also indicates that open source cloud infrastructure solutions are taking the lead. According to the 2013 “State of the Cloud” survey, among the 64 percent of respondents who plan to include a private cloud as part of their cloud portfolio, 41 percent plan to use only open source-based private cloud options, while another 29 percent plan to use a hybrid combination of open source and proprietary solutions (2).

Red Hat and Bull Achieve Top Performance Benchmark Results

Red Hat also announced new top performance records on SPECvirt’s industry-standard benchmark SPECvirt_sc2010 highlighting the Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) hypervisor’s lead as the industry’s top-performing hypervisor (3). Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4 with its KVM hypervisor enabled the Bull SAS bullion server to run 768 Virtual Machines, a performance confirmed as the fastest and most efficient virtualization test on an x86 server.

This SPECvirt_sc2010 score represents the highest number of performant virtual machines and the highest performance score overall recorded on a single x86 server for this benchmark. This also solidifies Red Hat's hypervisor performance leadership as Red Hat’s KVM powers the top 2-socket and 4-socket scores, and the only recorded 8-socket and 16-socket scores.
