Docker And Red Hat Expand Collaboration Around Container Technologies

Docker, the commercial entity behind the Docker.io project, the industry’s leading container solution, and Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, today announced a deeper relationship that builds on the existing technology collaboration between the companies. As part of the expanded collaboration, Docker and Red Hat will work together on interoperability between Docker's hosted services and Red Hat certified container hosts and services.

The rapid rise of the Docker project reflects the IT industry’s growing recognition of the importance of standardized, open source, container-based approaches to application creation, deployment, and management. Long a leader in Linux container technologies, Red Hat began working closely with the Docker team in September 2013. Since then Red Hat has worked to extend Docker for inclusion in Red Hat Enterprise Linux, with new production-grade file-system options, integrated systemd process management, and use of SELinux to provide military-grade security. Red Hat has also packaged Docker for Fedora and Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and launched the Red Hat Container Certification in March 2014. Building on these efforts, Red Hat and Docker are deepening collaboration around Docker container technologies. Red Hat will bring Docker container technologies into the high-touch beta program for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, and to OpenShift, its award-winning Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering.

Application containers have emerged as an essential solution for developers and IT operations teams, one that provides both a flexible way to build and deploy applications, while significantly reducing the time and expense associated with underlying cloud infrastructure. Emerging as the de facto standard for containerization in the Linux community, Docker technology offers benefits to developers, system administrators, and DevOps alike.

“Red Hat has a long history of developing, investing in and fostering innovative technologies, including Linux Containers, an open source methodology that has seen numerous, fundamental contributions from Red Hat over the years,” said Brian Stevens, executive vice president and CTO, Red Hat. “The Docker technology, which helps eliminate the barriers facing enterprise adoption of containers – ease of use, application packaging and infrastructure integration – was very exciting to us. We believe that integrating Red Hat and Docker technologies offers both powerful developer capabilities and a lightweight application packaging approach for enterprise workloads across industries. By working together, we can bring an extended set of capabilities to not only Red Hat customers, but to the open source and Linux community at large.”
