During this week’s Red Hat Summit, the company announced enhanced support for edge networking in its upcoming RHEL 8.4 release. The Red Hat Edge initiative promises new capabilities that will make RHEL a more powerful foundation for the open hybrid cloud.
The Red Hat Edge aims to extend Red Hat’s open hybrid cloud portfolio to the edge. This will involve everything from telecommunications and transportation to smart automobiles and enterprise devices. With Red Hat technologies, the edge-ready technology stack uses Red Hat Enterprise Linux along with:
Red Hat OpenShift – making it possible to deploy Kubernetes platform in both space- and resource-constrained locations
Red Hat Advanced Cluster Management – adding Kubernetes management capabilities across the hybrid cloud
Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform – automating workflows
Red Hat Integration – connecting applications and data across edge and open cloud deployments
Red Hat Data Services – storing, analyzing and distributing data across edge and data centers
The company is also expanding its predictive analytics offering, Red Hat Insights, across the open hybrid cloud with the launch of Red Hat Insights for Red Hat OpenShift and Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform and with expanded capabilities for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL).
