Red Hat has announced the first steps for integrating CoreOS Tectonic, Quay, and Container Linux with Red Hat's robust container and Kubernetes-based solutions portfolio.
Red Hat acquired CoreOS and its container OS solution Container Linux, Tectonic enterprise Kubernetes, and Quay container registry in January.
The company has released the roadmap of how it will combine these solutions with its own container infrastructure offerings, which it says will enable it to offer comprehensive solutions to enterprises for cloud deployments.
Tectonic and Container Linux will help drive automation at every layer of the cloud-native stack, backed by Red Hat's commitment to enterprise-grade stability and support. This automation will extend to Red Hat's robust independent software vendor (ISV) ecosystem, enabling them to more easily deliver and maintain applications and services on top of Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform across hybrid environments with the simplicity of public clouds.
Tectonic's automated operations, Red Hat CoreOS and more will be fully integrated into Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform in future versions. Container Linux will continue to be maintained while its successor will be developed with the Fedora and CoreOS Communities.
Ashesh Badani, vice president and general manager, OpenShift, Red Hat, commented: "We strongly believe that the integration of CoreOS' automation technologies with Red Hat's powerful infrastructure solutions will redefine the hybrid cloud, meshing the simplicity of public cloud deployments with the enhanced security of private cloud computing. Previously, enterprises had to choose between public cloud lock-in for ease-of-use or managing the complexity of a hybrid IT environment to retain full control over workloads and data. Now, Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform settles this argument, delivering automation across the entire container stack, from the underlying operating system to the application services, to make hybrid IT easier to consume while retaining enhanced security, driving a new model for how enterprises perceive the open hybrid cloud."
