  • CRI-O now running production workloads in OpenShift Online

    After hitting 1.0 in October of last year and being shipped as generally available (GA) in OpenShift 3.9, CRI-O has reached another important milestone—it’s now being used in production for many workloads running on OpenShift Online Starter accounts using OpenShift 3.10. Using CRI-O in a real-world production environment with diverse Kubernetes workloads is an important part of the development feedback loop for improving and extending CRI-O and OpenShift.

  • Containers are Linux. Products run the enterprise. So why are we swimming in a sea of Kubernetes project-based services? Part 2

    The rush to enable and adopt Kubernetes is evident with nearly weekly announcements of new Kubernetes distributions or services. The CNCF Kubernetes Conformance Program lists, as of this writing, at least 37 conformant software distributions of Kubernetes alone, plus additional hosted services.

    That’s a lot of choice. But many of these vendors and organizations are certifying and delivering just Kubernetes, or Kubernetes plus one or two components that add some extended functionality, not an overall solution or platform in which Kubernetes plays a part. Just like the Linux Foundation is the governing body for the upstream development of Linux, which is also one piece of the much larger operating system platform, so is CNCF the governing body for Kubernetes. Conformance in the upstream development stage does not imply a viable enterprise solution.

  • The time for change is now - channeling the digital transformation opportunity

    IT suppliers of all types live in a time of great opportunity. Organizations across industries have accepted that digital transformation has to be an integral part of their business and the channel must step forward and become a leader that helps companies to modernize infrastructure, exploit hybrid cloud capabilities and develop applications faster than ever before. However joint research we conducted in collaboration with CRN UK shows that channel partners in Europe still have work to do: just 22 percent of IT suppliers feel capable of providing a complete service to cater for digital transformations.

    Red Hat‘s (NYSE: RHT) enterprise-grade products will be available to government agencies and regulated industries on Amazon Web Services‘ GovCloud marketplace via a distribution agreement with DLT Solutions, ExecutiveBiz reported Friday.

    DLT will offer Red Hat’s products and managed services as a “Certified Cloud Service Provider” through an agreement that builds on the companies’ strategic partnership that dates back to 2004, DLT said Wednesday.

  • Red Hat's expanding relationships with telcos

    It used to be that operators in the U.S. turned to Red Hat for their IT department needs, but for the past several years Red Hat has been increasingly involved on the network side of their businesses.

    With the emphasis on NFV and open source, Red Hat is becoming an increasingly significant player in the wireless space. “In the past few years, we’ve had interactions with every operator in the U.S.,” in some form or another, said Ian Hood, Red Hat's chief technologist and global service provider, in an interview with Fierce.

    Publicly, of course, the company is limited on which customers it can disclose. In the U.S., Verizon has openly participated in Red Hat’s OpenStack Summits and talked about its NFV deployments, for example.

Red Hat News: Summit Supercomputer, OpenShift and More

  • How Red Hat Powers the #1 Summit Supercomputer

    In this video from ISC 2018, Yan Fisher from Red Hat and Buddy Bland from ORNL discuss Summit, the world’s fastest supercomputer. Red Hat teamed with IBM, Mellanox, and NVIDIA to provide users with a new level of performance for HPC and AI workloads.

    [...]

    The composition of Summit should not come as a surprise, as modern supercomputers are frequently built from a collection of components that each meet specific needs, rather than using the product line of a single vendor. All of these components are commoditized, in that they can be (and often are) deployed into enterprise datacenters. Also like traditional datacenters, running on this hardware are often Linux distributions – according to the most recent (November 2017) Top500 list, the top ten fastest supercomputers in the world all run a variant of Linux.

    The total system design of Summit, consisting of 4,608 IBM compute servers, aims to make it easier to bring research applications to this behemoth. Part of this is the consistent environment provided by Red Hat Enterprise Linux, with which many leading researchers around the world are already familiar. Red Hat Enterprise Linux is also widely deployed in National Labs and research centers around the globe and is a proven platform for large-scale computing across multiple hardware architectures.

  • Promoting container images between registries with skopeo

    OpenShift admins choose different architectures for their installations, but many use two discrete clusters to physically divide development and testing workloads from production deployments.

    We recommend having some Continuous Integration (CI) process in nearly every development scenario, to orchestrate the lifecycle of applications from the initial commit all the way into production. Continuous Integration can imply many different tasks related to application development, testing, and releases. In this article, I won’t directly address whether one should do Continuous Delivery or Continuous Deployment, as that depends on the maturity and complexity of the organization and the application.

  • OKD: Renaming of OpenShift Origin with 3.10 Release

    When we released OpenShift Origin as the open source upstream project for Red Hat OpenShift back in April 2012, we had little inkling of the phenomenal trajectory of cloud-native technology that was to come. With all the work that has gone into the Kubernetes-based core platform (OpenShift 3) from the initial OpenShift Origin 1.0 Release (OpenShift 3) in June 2015, to current release of Red Hat OpenShift 3.10 release last week, we’ve seen the rise of Kubernetes and containers create the basis of the cloud-native landscape. We collaborated in the incubation and maturation of dozens of new cloud-native projects and into a myriad of upstream projects, expanding the universe of tools and platforms in a way we could only have dreamed about just three years ago.

    So it’s time for a new logo, new website and a new name for our open source project. We are changing the name of our open source project to better represent who we are today, and who we’ll be tomorrow – the Origin community distribution of Kubernetes that powers Red Hat OpenShift.

  • How open virtualization can make a difference in people's lives

    Recently a group of Red Hat product managers were discussing the uniqueness of our products. In this case Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat Virtualization, and that when combined together into a ‘platform’ how they deliver unique opportunities and value for our customers which in turn allows them to further innovate in ways that can drive their businesses to a greater good.

    An example of this is recent work done by Intermountain Healthcare. Intermountain Healthcare drove investments with Red Hat in Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat Virtualization as well as CloudForms and Ansible. Combined, these Red Hat offerings when integrated into Intermountain’s day-to-day business processes resulted in increased service delivery levels—important in the healthcare world.

  • Istio Service Mesh Becomes Generally Available

    Brian “Redbeard” Harrington, product manager for Istio at Red Hat, says Istio provides the glue needed to, for example, balance microservices workloads running on top of a Kubernetes cluster. The latest version of Istio adds improved handling of role based access controls (RBAC), improved transport layer security (TLS) handling, component and additional (and refactored) test suites in addition to being generally more stable, says Harrington.

  • Container-native integration testing

    Integration testing is still an important step in a CI/CD pipeline even when you are developing container-native applications. Integration tests tend to be very resource-intensive workloads that run for a limited time.

    I wanted to explore how integration testing technologies and tools could leverage a container orchestrator (such as Red Hat OpenShift) to run faster and more-dynamic tests, while at the same time using resources more effectively.

  • Automation Broker Discovering Helm Charts

    The Automation Broker works in conjunction with the Kubernetes Service Catalog to make services and applications easily deployable. An end user selects a service to be provisioned, selects a “plan” that describes the level of service (small, large, paid, free, persistent, ephemeral, etc), and then provides any required parameters. In this scenario, Helm charts can be utilized in two possible ways.

  • Red Hat Releases OpenShift Container Storage 3.10

    This week Red Hat announced the latest version of its popular enterprise Kubernetes platform Red Hat OpenShift Container Storage 3.10 (formerly known as Red Hat Container-Native Storage). Just to point out this is a follow up to OpenShift Container Storage 3.9 and should be thought of as three-point-ten not three-point-one-o. This update adds several features such as arbiter volume support for replication for increased container-based data protection and full production support for block-based workloads.

  • Red Hat’s Relentless Focus on Open Source Software Challenges Status Quo in Supercomputing

    Supercomputers and scientific research tend to go hand-in-hand. Designed for solving fundamental scientific problems, supercomputers have increasingly become more open in terms of collaboration and information exchange. In the past, supercomputer designs and implementations were relatively closed, often built by a single vendor from their inventory of components. Today, this model is evolving: As science becomes more accessible through global community, so to are supercomputers opening up via vendor collaboration.

    Two recent examples are the Summit and Sierra supercomputers rated #1 and #3 in the world, respectively. The result of multi-year cross-vendor collaboration efforts, these systems are using CPUs from IBM, GPU accelerators from NVIDIA, Infiniband networking from Mellanox, and a Linux operating system from Red Hat in Red Hat Enterprise Linux. This highlights a new path for not just supercomputing, but enterprise computing: more seamless multi-architectural support. Access to a broader range of architectural choices enables organizations to choose the computing backbone that best meets their unique needs, whether it’s a traditional datacenter environment or a high-powered supercomputer.

    The compute resources required by supercomputers go well beyond how we would normally talk about flexibility and scalability for IT operations. Supercomputing often pairs standard hardware at scale with additional, highly-specialized components. All of these components are commoditized, in that they can be (and often are) deployed into enterprise datacenters. Linux forms a common bridge to effectively link all pieces together, making it easier for individual application stacks to take advantage of the specific resources that they need. So it should not come as a surprise that, according to the most recent Top500 list, all supercomputers in the world run a variant of Linux.

  • Design thinking as a way of life

    Over the past few years, design has become more than a discipline. It has become a mindset, one gaining more and more traction in industrial practices, processes, and operations.

    People have begun to recognize the value in making design the fundamental component of the process and methodologies aimed at both the "business side" and the "people side" of the organization. In other words, "thinking with design" is a great way to approach business problems and organizational culture problems.

  • Istio v1.0 Service Mesh Released with Features “Ready for Production Use”

    At the Google Cloud Next 2018 event, held in San Francisco last week, the release schedule of the Istio v1.0 service mesh was announced. This week has seen the formal v1.0 release of the open platform that aims to make it easy to "create a network of deployed services with load balancing, service-to-service authentication, monitoring, and more, without any changes in service code". Key new features include cross-cluster mesh support, fine-grained traffic flow control, and the ability to incrementally roll out mutual TLS across a mesh.

  • Google, IBM, RedHat and others launch Istio 1.0 service mesh for microservices

  • Red Hat Releases Istio 1.0 – Already in Use by HP and eBay

    Google Cloud already offering a managed Istio service

    It has been in development for two years and has already been seen in the wild, but this week Version 1.0 of Red Hat’s “Istio” was officially launched.

    Istio is an open source microservices management tool, designed to handle load balancing, flow control, routing and the essential security needs of businesses that use microservices. It can handle service identity and security, policy enforcement and telemetry across apps running on multiple Kubernetes hosts.

  • Google releases universal plumbing for containers

    Google today released version 1.0 of Istio, a “service mesh” designed to make it easier to adopt containers and microservices.

    Istio does so by offering a layer that does jobs like collecting logs, traces and telemetry, authentication and network policy. Any application needs those services and monolithic applications often include them.

    But microservices are designed to orchestrate lots of small single-purpose code chunks into useful applications. It would be wasteful and/or super-complex to build those services into each component of a microservice and doing so would not reduce complexity.

    Enter Istio, which offers itself as the layer to do all the plumbing, regardless of the function or code used in a microservice.

  • Connecting and managing microservices with Istio 1.0 on Kubernetes

    Coming into this year, CoreOS’s Alex Polvi predicted that Istio, an open source tool to connect and manage microservices, would soon become a category leading service mesh (essentially a configurable infrastructure layer for microservices) for Kubernetes. Today we celebrate a milestone that brings us closer to that prediction: celebrating the general availability of Istio 1.0.

    Istio provides a method of integrating services like load balancing, mutual service-to-service authentication, transport layer encryption, and application telemetry requiring minimal (and in many cases no) changes to the code of individual services. This is in juxtaposition to other solutions like the various Java libraries from Netflix OSS. Utilizing these libraries requires both the use of Java for development as well as modification to source code, separately integrating these capabilities into each application component. I like to think of Istio as another component in your application stack, providing this functionality without extensive code changes.

  • Istio 1.0 Brings Service Mesh to Cloud Native Applications

    Istio disaggregates microservices networking connectivity, enabling services to be connected in a mesh. With Istio, service-to-service networking can be offloaded from individual microservices in a way that could help to expedite development. Kubernetes is a container orchestration system and has its own networking abstraction known as the Container Networking Interface (CNI) with policies defined via the Network Policy API. Istio can be deployed on top of an existing Kubernetes CNI deployment.

    "Just as Kubernetes provides orchestration of containers, Istio might best be viewed as providing orchestration of service-to-service networking yielding a much better way to develop and deploy microservice-based applications in a multicloud world," Lew Tucker, CTO for Cloud Computing at Cisco, wrote in a blog post.

  • What's in a container image: Meeting the legal challenges

    Container technology has, for many years, been transforming how workloads in data centers are managed and speeding the cycle of application development and deployment.

    In addition, container images are increasingly used as a distribution format, with container registries a mechanism for software distribution. Isn't this just like packages distributed using package management tools? Not quite. While container image distribution is similar to RPMs, DEBs, and other package management systems (for example, storing and distributing archives of files), the implications of container image distribution are more complicated. It is not the fault of container technology itself; rather, it's because container distribution is used differently than package management systems.

When an issue is under embargo, Red Hat cannot share information about that issue prior to it becoming public after an agreed upon deadline. It is likely that any software project will have to deal with an embargoed security flaw at some point, and this is often the case for Red Hat.
