We know that our users and customers are looking for more information about enterprise open source technologies and how to use them for real-world workloads.

Many customers I talk to have gotten a lot of value out of Red Hat Insights, which allows Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) customers to proactively identify and remediate risks in their RHEL environments

"These risks can include items related to security and compliance, performance, availability, and stability.

However, one common request I've heard is that customers would like a way to add their own internal checks that are specific to their environment into Insights.

This type of functionality is now available with the Policies capability in Red Hat Insights, which allows customers to define their own policies which are evaluated when Insights data is uploaded from RHEL hosts. If any of the policies are evaluated to match, an email or webhook action can be triggered..."

Red Hat News, September 24th, 2020

"My internship position on March 4th. A very short time later, COVID-19 caused companies to cancel their internships all over the United States. Thankfully, Red Hat announced that internships would go on in a virtual format.The Early Talent team made the necessary arrangements to make sure that our experience was impacted as little as possible by this change.

Prior to starting this internship I felt nervous about many things; the biggest worry was that I wasn't sure if I was prepared for the internship after only having a three-month software engineering bootcamp as my background.
