This is from the Red Hat Summit 2018 series.
I’m not the person to give you the best updated road map for RHEL and especially Container Linux. I’ve been focused in the multi-cloud Management and automation world for the past few years. A lot of developments have been afoot. Here are some amazing highlights with my commentary. I strongly suggest that you check it out the video below.
Immutable Foundation for OpenShift
The new Red Hat CoreOS (RHCOS) focus on several key areas. Red Hat Enterprise Linux and RHCOS are designed for different use cases and it’s important not to mix them. RHCOS will keep focused on one major thing… OpenShift/Kubernetes. RHCOS will be on the same cadence as Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform (RHOCP). This means when Kubenetes and OpenShift release, RHCOS will release. This allows engineering to keep the same speed and make changes necessary for new release of RHOSP. This also means that when we sunset specific version of RHOSP, it will also sunset the locked in version of RHCOS. Now we can keep the release coupled and supportable without having to drag RHEL before it’s ready.
There are so many more changes, but I don’t just want to copy slides. Hopefully you are intrigued enough to watch the video. Thanks for reading!
