The intelligent OS for hybrid cloud
Migrate workloads across environments with the operating system (OS) engineered for the hybrid cloud. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 gives organizations a consistent OS across public, private, and hybrid cloud environments. It provides version choice, long life-cycle commitments, a robust ecosystem of certified hardware, software, and cloud partners, and now comes with built-in management and predictive analytics.
Support for emerging technologies
Choice leads to innovation, but tying together the right hardware architectures, microchip components, and container platforms to effectively deploy emerging technologies requires the right enterprise-grade Linux. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 is supported across architectures and environments, so you have a consistent and stable OS that adapts along the way to machine learning, predictive analytics, Internet of Things (IoT), edge computing, and big data workloads.
Container tools that give you choice
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 offers container tools that allow you to tailor your systems to find, run, build, and share containers with other Open Container Initiative (OCI) standards-compatible tools. With this increased choice and support for containerized applications, you can implement business solutions when and how you want.
Use Podman for running containers.
Podman is a daemon-less command-line tool that lets you directly create and manage container images. By letting you work with containers without the need for a runtime environment, you can more tightly control the permissions granted to software components.
Streamline your process
Your apps never stop. Neither will your OS. With Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8, you can spend more time delivering business value and less time manually managing the underlying infrastructure. Quickly on-board non-Linux users using the web console, easily update apps using application streams, and stay focused on compliance and security with the built-in controls of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.
