As part of the Red Hat OpenStack ecosystem, PLUMgrid joins forces with Red Hat to meet the scale-out requirements of service providers and enterprises, and increase the adoption of OpenStack clouds. The Red Hat OpenStack Cloud Infrastructure Partner Network is designed for commercial organizations that offer plug-ins, hardware, software, or services for customers to implement cloud infrastructure solutions powered by Red Hat products built on OpenStack technology. The program offers partners the opportunity to gain the necessary expertise with Red Hat’s OpenStack technology through access to Red Hat releases and developer support, as well as key resources needed to test, certify, and publish solutions that leverage Red Hat’s OpenStack offerings. The Red Hat OpenStack Cloud Infrastructure Partner Network includes industry leading partners from around the world, including independent hardware vendors (IHVs), original equipment manufacturer (OEM) partners, independent software vendors (ISVs), and system integrators who have joined the program to provide certified solutions and launch their own practices to support customer deployments.
