Red Hat Offers Linux with Virtualization as SaaS

It offers automation tools across on-premises deployments and the Amazon EC2 cloud computing environment

Red Hat (NYSE: RHT), announced the beta availability of Red Hat Enterprise Linux on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), a web service that provides resizeable compute capacity in the cloud. This collaboration makes all the capabilities of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, including the Red Hat Network management service, world-class technical support and over 3,400 certified applications, available to customers on Amazon's proven network infrastructure and datacenters.

The combination of Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Amazon EC2 changes the economics of computing by allowing customers to pay only for the infrastructure software services and capacity that they actually use. Red Hat Enterprise Linux on Amazon EC2 enables customers to increase or decrease capacity within minutes, removing the need to over-buy software and hardware capacity as a set of resources to handle periodic spikes in demand.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux, with integrated virtualization, provides a seamless deployment solution bridging both on-premise and cloud computing. As part of this solution, Red Hat Network offers a common set of management and automation tools across on-premises deployments and the Amazon EC2 cloud computing environment. Red Hat will provide technical support and maintenance of Red Hat Enterprise Linux on Amazon EC2. This is the first commercially supported operating system available on Amazon EC2.

In collaboration with Amazon Web Services, we are now able to offer customers yet another choice in how they deploy the Red Hat Enterprise Linux platform. This offering will be appealing to developers, customers looking to quickly and cost-effectively deploy web-scale services and businesses that require rapidly scaled compute resources, said Donald Fischer, vice president of Online Services at Red Hat. The marriage of Red Hat Enterprise Linux with Amazon's EC2 service makes the promise of professional web scale computing a reality.

We are pleased to collaborate with Red Hat in making more choices available for Amazon EC2 users, said Adam Selipsky, vice president, Product Management and Developer Relations, Amazon Web Services. This offering will further help customers to avoid the heavy lifting of deploying and managing their own infrastructure, while paying as they go for Red Hats proven Enterprise Linux solution.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux on Amazon EC2 is available as a private beta today, with public beta availability planned for the fourth calendar quarter of 2007. Base prices are $19 per month, per user and $0.21, $0.53 or $0.94 for every compute hour used on Amazon's EC2 service, depending on whether customers choose a small, large or extra-large compute instance size, plus bandwidth and storage fees.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things').

IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
