Powering a cloud-native developer experience Frequently, modern applications built to run across the hybrid cloud are developed using Linux containers. Building cloud-native apps requires cloud-native development tools, like a container daemon, but these tools can introduce unnecessary risk and complexity into development environments.
At Red Hat, we believe that the platform technology to achieve this vision is Linux, Linux containers and Kubernetes.
Cloud-native application development describes the process of building applications using fine-grained components such as microservices and deploying them in Linux containers where they can be managed by a container platform.
As more companies transform their businesses with new value-creating applications, Linux containers and Kubernetes have been core technologies in the multi-billion dollar market for cloud-native application platforms.
The Kubernetes project has always been about managing workloads at scale using Linux containers. While many sub-projects have sprung up over time to handle everything from data storage, to networking to monitoring, one thing has always remained the same: Kubernetes ran Linux containers.
Cloud native application development is also driven by new software architectures, such as microservices and serverless, made possible through technologies such as Linux containers. Microservices are a collection of small, independent and loosely coupled services that create composite application experience.
By 2008, a slightly different approach was emerging, and although there were numerous virtualization efforts going on, Linux Containers (LXC) typified where thinking was moving and, to some extent, popularized the term "containers."
Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform has become a leader in the container space by offering an integrated, enterprise-grade container platform based on industry standards, including Linux containers and Kubernetes.
* Tobias Ternstrom and Mihaela Blendea demonstrated some new deployment options for Windows and Linux containers in what were perhaps the fastest installation and configuration processes I've ever seen.
Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform is the first and only container-centric, hybrid cloud solution built from Linux containers, Kubernetes, Project Atomic and OpenShift Origin upstream projects and based on the trusted backbone of the world's leading enterprise Linux platform, Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
