Red Hat Accelerates Application Delivery With New Linux Container Innovations

Stocks in this article: RHT

Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced several new Linux Container innovations in support of the company’s vision for streamlined application delivery and orchestration across bare metal systems, virtual machines and private and public clouds via containers and Docker technology. These innovations include:

  • Project Atomic – a new community project to develop technologies for creating lightweight Linux Container hosts, based on next-generation capabilities in the Linux ecosystem. The tools that result from Project Atomic will allow creation of a new variant of Red Hat Enterprise Linux – Red Hat Enterprise Linux Atomic Host – which Red Hat plans to debut with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.
  • GearD – a new OpenShift Origin community project to enable rapid application development, continuous integration, delivery, and deployment of application code to containerized application environments.
  • High-Touch Beta Program – an expansion of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 high-touch beta program to include Red Hat Enterprise Linux Atomic Host and Docker container technologies that will enable select customers to evaluate these new container technologies in enterprise environments.

Linux Containers and Docker have quickly emerged as key open source application packaging and delivery technologies, combining lightweight application isolation with the flexibility of an image-based deployment method. This can provide several benefits, including:

  • Application portability, allowing for the deployment of the application container across a variety of container hosts.
  • Minimal footprint, which reduces the overhead of deploying new application containers.
  • Simplified maintenance, reducing the effort and risk of patching applications and their dependencies.
  • Lowered development costs, as enterprises need only develop, test and certify applications against a single container runtime.

Open source container technologies also pave the way for an application-optimized infrastructure for the open hybrid cloud, one that can simplify the entire application lifecycle, from development and deployment to maintenance and management. As an increasing number of enterprises embrace DevOps philosophies, Red Hat expects container technologies will play a significant role in how organizations deliver and manage applications.
