Red Hat, the IBM-owned open source software provider, kicked off its annual summit Tuesday with a flurry of news headlines. Probably most consequential is its unveiling of new managed cloud services. The company says this move will “help fuel the next wave of cloud-native application innovations.”
Red Hat says the new managed cloud services build on its existing portfolio of OpenShift offerings that provide self- and fully managed Kubernetes across leading public clouds. This helps customers and partners build an open, hybrid cloud strategy based on Kubernetes, regardless of on-premises infrastructure assets or people on staff.
Meantime, Red also debuted a brand-new edition of its enterprise Kubernetes platform, which it calls OpenShift Platform Plus. The new platform offers multiple layers of security features, manageability and automation that work across infrastructures. This drives greater consistency throughout the entire supply chain and running workloads.
But that’s far from all. The company just debuted the latest version of its enterprise Linux platform and expanded its predictive analytics offering. It’s also touting new partnerships, including one to provide open source software to the automotive industry.
The virtual, two-day Red Hat Summit promises to show how open source is innovating the future of the enterprise. It includes a mix of innovation, collaboration and learning opportunities.
Our slideshow above touches on the highlights of the new managed cloud services, Linux and OpenShift updates, and more. Stay tuned to Channel Futures Tuesday and Wednesday for in-depth coverage of Red Hat Summit.
