Red Hat’s Hyperconverged Infrastructure is based on the company’s leading OpenStack and virtualization platforms, providing software-defined compute and storage driven by Red Hat Ansible Automation on industry-standard hardware. Red Hat offers a single support software stack and a single interface to manage compute, networking and storage resources. Customers can leverage Red Hat’s extensive OS, vitalization, storage and cloud management toolset to manage HCI.
Raleigh, N.C.-based Red Hat released its Hyperconverged Infrastructure for Virtualization platform in 2017 on top of its own KVM hypervisor and Gluster storage virtualization. The platform includes advanced data reduction capabilities, virtual graphics processing unit (vGPU) support and software-defined networking functionality. On July 9, Red Hat was acquired by IBM for an eye-popping $34 billion in a move to create a market leader in hybrid cloud computing.
