following SUSE yet again
The SUSE OpenStack graphical installation has been around for years... and the appliance version of SUSE Cloud is in its 4th generation: https://www.suse.com/communities/conversations/suse-cloud-4-openstack-admin-appliance-an-easier-way-to-start-your-cloud/

It's great that RedHat continually validates SUSE's decisions by following suit,  but it's a shame there's so little direct coverage of SUSE intiatives, even if only to see what Redhat will eventually get around to months or years later...

Red Hat offers a virtualizaton suite, Enterprise Virtualization, but its plans for the future rest more on its OpenShift platform as a service and a version of it in OpenStack. OpenShift faces stiff competition from a VMware spin-off, Pivotal's Cloud Foundry PaaS. VMware approaches the cloud from the perspective of virtual machines; Red Hat, from both virtual machines and containers, running either natively or together.
