Red Hat Gives Docker Containers its Full Blessing

As we covered, Red Hat has announced the releases of Red Hat Releases Enterprise 7 Atomic Host and Red Hat Releases Enterprise 7.1 update. In addition, it is evident that Red Hat is responding to the enormous popularity of Docker and container technology. The company's Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 Atomic Host removes all utilities residing in the stock distribution of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) that are not required for running Docker containers. The move effectively gives Red Hat an operating system/container offering to bring to enterprises.

"Twelve years ago, Red Hat delivered the first iteration of RHEL, taking a cutting edge software technology and molding it into the backbone that powers the enterprise, from the server to the cloud," said Jim Totton, Red Hat's Platforms Business Unit VP, in a statement. Today, with the launch of RHELAH, we are doing the same for Linux containers, bridging innovative open technology with the stability and security required by the enterprise. More than just an addition to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux portfolio, RHELAH showcases the future of the enterprise application, a powerful, flexible application greater than the sum of its parts, and entirely fueled by the power of open innovation."
