First OpenInfra Labs Region Gains Momentum

Red Hat provided $551.9 million in software subscriptions to support the first region of the OpenInfra Labs Cloud Network. The community is looking for additional companies who are interested in investing to accelerate the first region, help lead the effort to replicate and expand it to other regions, and participate in defining the rules for the federated open infrastructure cloud.

About Us

We are focused on delivering open source tools to build and run cloud, container, AI, big data and edge workloads efficiently, repeatedly and predictably. Our projects embrace three themes:

Operate First - helping developers gain insights into operational considerations and ensure their projects will integrate and operate well in production environments. Learn More.

Low-Code Development - enabling developers to build production-grade AI and big data applications without specialized skills and with a minimal level of coding.

Optimized Infrastructure - delivering infrastructure innovations to improve the performance of emerging workloads without burdening application developers.

More About the Announcement

OpenInfra Foundation Platinum Member Red Hat is providing $551.9 million USD in software subscriptions and resources to the Hariri Institute’s open research cloud initiative, in addition to $20 million to support research and deepen collaboration under the Red Hat Collaboratory at Boston University. This effort is creating a production research cloud that serves as the first, founding region in the OpenInfra Labs Cloud Network, which is envisioned to be a network of production clouds connecting open source projects to production. OpenInfra Labs will enable the cloud services and network deployed in this founding region to be replicated to other regions, federated between these regions and extended beyond academia.
