Red Hat has rolled out version 8.5 of its main-line branch of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), which upgrades its support for containerization, predictive analytics, and multicloud.
Red Hat Insight, the company’s predictive-analytics service—available through most RHEL subscriptions—now has more robust abilities in the areas of vulnerability identification, compliance, and remediation, the company said.
Containerization is upgraded with RHEL 8.5 to make containerized applications easier to deploy and manage, according to Red Hat. The company introduced the ability to create containerized images faster through rootless use of the OverlayFS filesystem. OverlayFS is “union file system,” which allows users to overlay one file system over another, enabling multiple users or applications to access it at the same time.
