子标题：Build, manage, and control an open hybrid cloud infrastructure using Red Hat CloudForms
The increasing adoption of the Cloud has led to enterprises having a heterogeneous IT environment that consists of both private and public cloud infrastructures, and in most cases existing virtualized infrastructures as well. As building and managing such a diverse IT infrastructure is a major challenges, Red Hat CloudForms provides a unified, consistent, and comprehensive management platform. With features like cloud intelligence dashboard, self-service portal, lifecycle management, policy-based governance, quotas, capacity management, monitoring and reporting, Red Hat CloudForms lets you manage your hybrid cloud infrastructure from a single pane of glass.
This book will equip you with a hands-on approach on how to build a hybrid cloud environment and then manage, control, and gain operational insights into it.
The book starts by showing you how to install and configure Red Hat CloudForms, and add infrastructure and cloud providers to build the hybrid cloud environment. Next, you will learn to provision virtual machines and instances to these platform providers, and manage and control the lifecycle of these resources. You will also get to know about automating provisioning.
Moving on, you’ll get to grips with the management of resources using policies, events, conditions, and actions. You’ll also learn to monitor these resources from a single pane of glass. Finally, the book covers viewing capacity and utilization trends to optimize the overall hybrid cloud infrastructure, and also introduces you to supported APIs.
By end of the book, you will be able to deploy and use Red Hat CloudForms.
