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.”

Last Thursday’s post directed you to the Red Hat Blog where we underscored why the operating system remains vitally important. In this related companion piece we’re reminded why quality, a chain of trust, and certifications are integral to enterprise-grade products. In fact, building upon Red Hat Enterprise Linux helps to ensure that your IT infrastructure (everything from software-defined storage to application containerization to OpenStack solutions) benefits from the same trusted technology pool and serves as an optimized stack. Click here to learn more.
Applications, virtual machines, containers… what do they all have in common? They each operate on top of the solid foundation that is the operating system. In fact, in a world where the pace of technological change is unrelenting, where change is perhaps the only constant, there will always be a need for a reliable platform to build upon. Has the operating system become a modern day utility? Find out here.
At Red Hat, we take pride in the fact that we actively contribute to the projects that are used to build our set of leading enterprise solutions. And when one project’s community is distinguished for their exemplary efforts – we want to recognize them as well.
As such, we are pleased to announce that the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) has received the Association for Computing Machinery’s (ACM) 2014 Programming Languages Software Award. Awarded to an institution or individuals that have developed a software system with lasting influence, the award recognizes GCC’s 27 years of success and the substantial impact it has had on the software industry, an example of which is its importance to modern datacenter operations.
Not only is GCC a key component of Red Hat Enterprise Linux…

Six months ago we announced the beta availability of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. Two months ago, at Red Hat Summit 2014, we announced the availability of a release candidate for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. All the while we have been validating what’s new, different, and exciting about what Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 has to offer – including:
Today we are pleased to announce the general availability of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, the latest major release of our flagship platform. As stated in this morning’s press release:

Earlier this morning, Richard Morrell (@EMEACloudGuy) posted his interview with Tim Burke, VP of Infrastructure Engineering, from Red Hat Summit 2014. Listen here as Tim describes the evolution of Red Hat Enterprise Linux and how infrastructure continues to evolve to meet the needs of developers, new innovations like OpenStack and OpenShift, and even new requirements from segments like telecommunications and financial services.
Richard’s podcasts are also available via iTunes, podfeed.net, and Stitcher.
