Today is my first day at Red Hat! Well, OK, I’ve been here a few years, but today I move from Engineering to Sales. My new role is “Specialist Solutions Architect” where that specialty is Cloud.
I have a lot to learn, and I will try to use this site to record the most important and interesting details I learn.
What are the Cloud Products? well, according to Red Hat’s site, they are (please mentally prepend Red Hat to all of these) OpenStack Platform, OpenShift, CloudForms, Virtualization, Certificate System, Directory Server, as well as products bundles built out of these. Of these all, I’d guess I have the most to learn about CloudForms, as I’ve only recently started working with that. Really, though, I have a lot to learn across the board. I know that both Ansible Tower and Satellite server are major integration points for management of servers in the large, and I’ll be expected to provide expertise there as well. Plus, everything builds on the other product lines: RHEL and variants, as well as the Storage and Networking solutions.
This is going to be fun. Time to dig in.
Directory Server is a ‘cloud product’? Has anyone who made that choice ever tried running it in a cloud, I wonder? 😛
Yeah, I know, that was my reaction, too. Its funny because IdM is under platform, and IdM is built on Directory Server and Certificate Server
welcome to the dark side!
thanks for sharing very nice information.
