Red Hat's having a crack at a hyperconverged software stack.
The company's play has seen it bundle its very own Linux, Red Hat Virtualization, the Gluster network filesystem and Ansible automation tool into a package capable of running on lots of servers, or one.
Red Hat's hanging this product on two ideas.
The first is its familiar proposition that community-built software is more innovative, and less risky, than proprietary code that only advances on a vendor's whim.
Red Hat's made a business of supporting such code and offers itself up to do the same with this collection too.
The second idea is that one stack running everywhere is a fine idea.
