We’re adopting a new marketing mantra for Red Hat Enterprise Linux: Listen. Learn. Build. Which probably doesn’t seem all that revolutionary. That’s pretty much the mantra of open source. But compare that to how tech marketing usually happens.
There’s a lot of building–assets and advertisements and the whole nine yards. But the listening and learning parts usually happen afterwards, if at all.
So we’re making a conscious effort to explicitly apply the principles of open source to the way that we market our flagship open source technology. We’re starting with the listening part.
And who exactly are we listening to? You.
And what exactly are we listening to you talk about? Your OS adventures.
And what exactly do we mean by “OS adventures”?–
–Actually, here’s a better idea. Instead of telling you what we’re doing and why, let’s show you…

A new post by Irshad Raihan and Sayan Saha explains how Red Hat Storage offers choice in terms of deployment configurations for containerized applications.

Woah. 2015 went by really quickly. I do suppose it’s not all that surprising as time flies… especially when you’re having fun or… getting older (you pick). In fact, we’ve already put 2 percent of 2016 behind us! That said, before we get too deep into “the future”, and in consideration of Janus having not one but two faces, let’s take a quick trip down memory lane…
Without a doubt, 2015 was an exciting year for all things “container”, especially here at Red Hat.
To recap, the year started off with a bang when we announced the general availability of Red Hat Enterprise Linux Atomic Host alongside Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.1. Then – less than two months later

The ocean of data coursing through your business can be a blessing or a curse.
If you can use your data to spot opportunities as they appear, it can mean the difference between success and failure. Unfortunately for many companies, key performance indicators and other metrics reporting can involve long waits due to complex legacy systems burdened by large data volumes. The result can be standard reports that take hours or even days—and an inability to deliver custom reports.
How do these companies compensate for slow, inflexible reporting systems? Many end up relying on spreadsheets and manual labor to consolidate information from disparate systems. Is this timely or an efficient use of company manpower? Usually not.

From news on the latest Red Hat product releases to essays on the hottest technologies – all authored by some of Red Hat’s best and brightest – the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Blog has been working to surface the information you need. As we worked our way towards two years of posting goodness – we’ve covered everything from kpatch to containers.
That said, we have yet to ask you, our loyal readership, what you want to hear next. So… for a change of pace, we’re asking you to “select your destiny”. How does one go about “selecting their destiny”? The answer is simple: by taking part in this straw poll.
We look forward to your selection!
In March, we announced the general availability of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.1, the first update to our Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 platform. In addition, we also announced the general availability of Red Hat Enterprise Linux Atomic Host, our first container-optimized host platform. Today, we are pleased to announce the beta availability of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.2.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.2 beta includes a number of new features and enhancements – while continuing to provide the stability, reliability, and security required to meet the demands of both modern datacenters and next-generation IT environments.
Interested in learning more? For more information on the beta release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.2 you can review the release notes in the Red Hat Customer Portal.
Ready to get started? If you’re an existing Red Hat customer (with an active Red Hat Enterprise Linux subscription), you can access and download Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.2 beta via the Software & Download Center.
On Thursday, July 30, 2015, Red Hat will be presenting a free webinar for system administrators, engineers, and architects to learn what’s new with Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
During this webinar Red Hat curriculum manager and Red Hat Certified Architect, Michael Jarrett, will teach you about the new and changed features in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. He’ll focus on system administration topics that have changed significantly or are particularly important in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. He’ll also discuss the skills and expert knowledge needed to measure and influence performance on these systems.
Then Pete Hnath, director of curriculum, will show you how easy it is to train on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 and update your skills with the new Red Hat Learning Subscription, a year-long, all-access pass to more than 30 online learning courses.
Here on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Blog we’ve dedicated a number of posts to containers and a variety of associated Red Hat solutions. Whether you’re seeking to deploy Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 applications on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 as containers, hoping to better understand how atomic updates work, or are simply out to learn all you can about Red Hat Enterprise Linux Atomic Host – there’s likely a post (here) with the information you need. However, we’ve yet to really explore container orchestration. To this end, I invite you to read this new post from Red Hat’s own Joe Fernandes. Joe talks about Kubernetes, Google’s tool for managing clusters of Linux containers, its progenitor (i.e Google’s Borg), and how Red Hat is building on top of Kubernetes to bring web-scale container infrastructure to enterprise customers.
Several weeks ago Red Hat and Cisco collaborated on a whitepaper for IT leaders and industry analysts on Linux containers. The following is an excerpt from the first page:
“Linux containers and Docker are poised to radically change the way applications are built, shipped, deployed, and instantiated. They accelerate application delivery by making it easy to package applications along with their dependencies. As a result, the same containerized application can operate in different development, test, and production environments. The platform can be a physical server, virtual server, public cloud, or network device.”
