Red Hat moves deeper into cloud analytics

ZDNet - Red Hat has made it clear that its wants to be a major cloud company. Now, it's making sure you know that it also wants to be your cloud analytic partner.

Yes, Red Hat is a Linux company. But, it's more than that. Back in 2011, Red Hat CEO Jim Whitehurst told me the Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) cloud would be Red Hat's future. Today, at Red Hat Summit in Boston, Red Hat made it clear that it wants to be a cloud analytic powerhouse as well.

Red Hat introduced Red Hat Access Insights (RHAI) 6 to provide customers with improved operational analytics. The company also announced expanded capabilities in Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure, Red Hat CloudForms, and Red Hat Satellite.

RHAI is a service designed to help customers pro-actively prevent and resolve issues impacting critical cloud operations. It's meant to provide IT managers and system administrators with better visibility into their Red Hat infrastructure, and focuses on four critical areas: performance, availability, stability, and security.
