Red Hat delves deeper into the cloud
At the Red Hat Summit 2010, the open source leader announced several new cloud computing services designed for CIOs.

First on the list is Red Hat Cloud Foundations, an "offering family" with a focus on planning, building and managing private and public clouds. Its basically KVM and Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager (RHEV-M) with a bunch of prebaked solutions added on.

Generously, Red Hat will consult with your enterprise on "turnkey assessment, implementation and operational management of a private cloud" at a standard rate if going it alone seems daunting. It also will offer an implementation guide and reference architecture with a step-by-step guide to private cloud creation and configuration.

The company is also expanding its Certified Cloud Provider Program and presenting a Platform as a Service (PaaS) roadmap for interested enterprises.

CentriLogic is a Canadian company, and it has only recently made the plunge into cloud services based in America.

AMD announced at the Structure 2010 conference that its new AMD Opteron 4000 Series server platform will meet cloud computing requirements.
