RALEIGH, N.C. — August 9, 2017 – Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, today announced the general availability of Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform 3.6, the latest version of Red Hat’s enterprise-grade Kubernetes container application platform.
Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform 3.6 offers an enterprise-ready container platform based on Kubernetes 1.6, Red Hat Enterprise Linux and the integrated docker container runtime. By combining these open source technologies, Red Hat, as a leading contributor to both the docker and Kubernetes projects, helps customers to more quickly roll out new services with the support of a stable, reliable and more secure enterprise container solution powered by the world’s leading enterprise Linux platform.

For years Windows and Linux have been rival development and runtime environments used by two distinct development communities – .Net vs. J2EE. At least that’s what we thought. In fact, they are not rivals at all, really. Rather, they are both commonly used by nearly all enterprises to develop and execute the applications they need to run their businesses.
Today, those applications are being modernized, containerized and redeployed across multiple clouds. Business and IT planners alike are rethinking how to develop new cloud-native applications and the infrastructure needed to deploy them to their best execution venue whether on-premises, in or across private, public or hybrid clouds. They expect the IT vendors and service providers they use to do more than just coexist. They expect partnerships dedicated to customer success – and none more so than among the two leading vendors in each community, Microsoft and Red Hat.
In this webinar 451 Research Principal Analyst Carl Lehmann, Nicholas Gerasimatos of Red Hat and Jose Miguel Parrella, Sr Product Marketing Manager for Open Source at Microsoft will address:
– How to overcome common challenges of application modernization, infrastructure management, and cloud deployment.
– The partnership, and capabilities enabled therein, between Microsoft and Red Hat.
– How Microsoft Azure and Red Hat ecosystems support and complement each other.
Participants will learn how Microsoft and Red Hat build upon each other’s strengths in container-based, cloud-native application development, infrastructure deployment and operations to better serve their mutual customers through joint business practices, technology support, and ecosystem.

BMW Group, the world’s leading premium manufacturer of automobiles and motorcycles, has deployed Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform to support its delivery of business applications and services.
“After the decomposition of traditional applications into micro-services running on containers, Red Hat OpenShift container platform enables the BMW Group to do point scaling to adjust loads to peaks and troughs in demand, and to deliver the continuous service that today’s consumers expect,” explains Red Hat.

Kubernetes is in, container registries are a dime a dozen, and maximum container density isn’t the only thing that matters when running containers.
Kubernetes. Around 43 percent of Sysdig’s users employed Kubernetes (including OpenShift, Tectonic, et al.), while 9 percent used Mesos or DC/OS, and 7 percent stuck with Docker Swarm
Docker Inc’s introduction of secrets into Docker Datacenter is a welcome and expected development. The Kubernetes community has had this capability for years and it has helped propel Red Hat’s Enterprise Kubernetes distribution, the OpenShift Container Platform, further into many mission-critical use cases and deployments.

“Red Hat has helped enable the Windows container support at several levels, including laying foundational groundwork to have Windows nodes connected to the cluster and assisting in the prototyping of how Kubernetes concepts can be mapped to Windows containers,”
