Red Hat has launched a pair of initiatives to increase the use of its Enterprise Linux platforms in OpenStack clouds.
The company said that it would be launching a partner programme along with an early adopter programme aimed at getting updates to users with greater frequency.
Known as RDO, the OpenStack build will run on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Fedora and other versions of the Red Hat Linux platform.
Designed to function as a community-supported version of OpenStack for early adopters, the RDO will be closely integrated with OpenStack's development channel and will get new updates and editions quickly.
Additionally, the company said that it would be launching a partner programme for other OpenStack developers. Designed to operate as an ecosystem for public and private cloud computing deployments, the partner programme will support partners working on Red Hat Linux-based OpenStack clouds.
Though Red Hat said that it was the single biggest contributor to the latest version of OpenStack, chief technology officer Brian Stevens said that in order to further advance OpenStack on Red Hat Linux it will need to reach out to third parties.
"You are no longer seeing one company solely lead the effort," Stevens explained. "It has become a more-balanced network."
The Red Hat news comes in the wake of the release of OpenStack's 'Grizzly' release. The cloud platform was updated to provide improved storage support.
