RALEIGH, N.C: Red Hat announces the launch of the Red Hat Cloud Innovation Practice, a new global team of experts that will assist companies with more quickly on-ramping to the cloud, reports Business Wire.  This is done by providing solutions and services such as validated designs with reference architectures and agile methodology consulting, training, and support.

The Red Hat Cloud Innovation Practice is born out of the integration of technology and engineering expertise gained through the company's 2014 acquisitions of leading Ceph storage system provider, Inktank, and cloud computing services provider, eNovance. Both companies provided the highly specialized skills, solution sets, methodologies and product expertise required to launch a truly forward-looking cloud practice capable of helping companies manage the complexities associated with the cloud.

With an eye on helping customers increase their business agility and ability to quickly adapt to changes in their environment, the Red Hat Cloud Innovation Practice can define and develop standard operational procedures, methodologies and governance for cloud and DevOps strategy development and deployments across Red Hat's current portfolio of integrated products and services, including Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform, OpenShift by Red Hat, Red Hat CloudForms, and Inktank Ceph Enterprise. The Red Hat Cloud Innovation Practice is designed to help customers reduce project risks, expedite delivery, and manage the lifecycle of individual solutions.

Additionally, the Red Hat Cloud Innovation Practice will aggregate product feedback and provide the technical leadership, evangelism, best practices, research, support and dissemination services needed to create relevant use cases outlining ways to help increase delivery efficiency, speed up deployments, and achieve a quicker return on investment.
