Red Hat Open Stack is a cloud operating system that controls large pools of compute, storage, and networking resources throughout a data center. It is more likely a private cloud but is not limited to that aspect only. It is an open source cloud platform which allows it to be customized as per the requirements. All of the above components are managed through a dashboard which gives administrators control while empowering their users to provision resources through a web interface. Behind the scenes, open stack runs a bunch of services which works in collaborative respect for carrying out the tasks.
