As Red Hat engineers, we are always looking to incorporate features that empower administrators and decision makers. Our goal is to enable them to be proactive, efficient, and to help them maximize value from their infrastructure.
To this end, we are currently working on how to significantly improve the reporting and metrics API in Red Hat Virtualization Manager, our management platform for virtualized resources. Until recently, Red Hat Virtualization relied on native reports and data warehouse engines to provide

We are continuing our series on how Red Hat Keeps the Lights on with Red Hat Virtualization. Please read our previous blog post if you missed any of the series. In this blog post, I will highlight how Red Hat IT uses Red Hat Fuse and JBoss A-MQ to integrate our internal systems that support Accounting, Consulting, Engineering, Finance, Legal, Marketing, Operations, Sales and Training departments. Our internal Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) flows over 100,000 messages a day between these systems with wildly differing interchange and data formats. Our entire ESB deployment runs on virtual machines backed by Red Hat Virtualization. This deployment enables us to scale on demand to meet the changing needs of our business needs and integrated systems.

The usage of open source technologies has grown significantly in the public sector. In fact, according to a published memo, open source technologies allow the Department of Defense to “develop and update its software-based capabilities faster than ever, to anticipate new threats and respond to continuously changing requirements”. Cybersecurity threats are on the rise and organizations need to ensure that the software they use in their environments is safe. IT teams need the ability to quickly identify and mitigate breaches. They also need to deploy preventative measures and ensure that all stakeholders are protected.

Red Hat has been a technology industry leader for many years. We are not just creators of innovative open source technologies, but we are also consumers of our own technologies. At Red Hat, nearly all of our core IT infrastructure runs on Red Hat Virtualization. From our development environment all the way to production. Several of our mission critical applications are powered by Red Hat Virtualization including our email systems, identity management, subscription manager, customer service portal, and many more applications. Since we are a global company, we have deployed thousands of VMs that need to be up and running 24/7, and we chose Red Hat Virtualization to get the job done.

As applications are designed, redesigned, or even simply thought about at a high level, we frequently think about technical barriers along side business needs. Business needs may dictate that a new architecture move forward, but technical limitations can sometimes counter how far forward – unless there is something to bridge the gap. The new Neutron network integration between Red Hat Virtualization (RHV) and Red Hat OpenStack Platform (RHOSP) provides such a bridge for business and technical solutions.
