Here’s a great introduction written by Bryan Che, a Red Hat cloud strategy guy, on why we released ManageIQ as an open source project, as well as a look at the cloud management landscape. Cloud management is currently a nice car with four flat tires, and all four of them with different sizes, colors, and recommended pressure.
The wait is over—ManageIQ is now open source!
As I mentioned in the previous blog post, it’s a great day to be in the cloud. Yesterday marked our announcement at the OpenStack Summit, and the reaction was pretty swift and positive. There is pent-up demand for software that lets others take control of their clouds and virtualization environments.
We are gearing up for an open source release in the coming weeks, and you’re probably curious what all the fuss is about. What you’ll find here is some introductory information and ways to sign up for news and, eventually, pre-release code as we get closer to the project launch. Read Red Hat’s press release – it will give you the background information you need.
