Red Hat OpenStack Platform provides the foundation to build a private or public Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud on top of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. It offers a massively scalable, fault-tolerant platform for the development of cloud-enabled workloads.
Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) uses virtualization to move network node functions into building blocks that interconnect to create communication services. NFV is a new way to define, create, and manage networks by replacing dedicated hardware appliances with software and automation.
This guide briefly discusses Red Hat’s effort to accelerate NFV deployments using the Red Hat OpenStack Platform.
