Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 8.4 will be available in the coming weeks

"In this post we'll take a look at some of the highlights and important features coming in 8.4 for RHEL subscribers and on-demand public cloud users as well. Across the hybrid cloud, all the way to the edge, RHEL 8.4 has improvements that will help simplify the deployment and management of applications and infrastructure.

RHEL 8.4 continues the predictable, six-month cadence of RHEL releases. As the fourth minor release since the initial RHEL 8.0 release in early 2019, Red Hat continues to deliver new features and enhancements for operators, developers and organizations that have standardized on RHEL..."


It seems like just yesterday we were planning for Red Hat Summit 2021, and now the two days of our April Summit programming have just flown by

"Let's take a quick look back at what happened. And, if you missed something, don't worry! Much of the Summit programming is still available on demand for you to watch at your convenience.

Major Summit announcements

Let's take a look back at some of the major news from Red Hat Summit. There was a lot going on, and you might have missed an announcement or two..."


The first day of the Red Hat Summit Virtual Experience is all wrapped up, and we couldn't be happier with the turnout or the sessions. From the general session to Summit news to fun and games, it was a packed day

"Actually, it was several packed days if you count the schedules for all regions. We like to think we have exciting news this year, but asking attendees to get up before dawn or stay up after midnight is a little much. To help everyone stay well-rested we hosted schedules for North America & LATAM, EMEA and APAC to try to provide workable schedules for Summit attendees all over the globe.

This year we also provided closed captioning and audio streams in multiple languages, so attendees who prefer to consume the sessions in Chinese, French, Italian, German, Portuguese, Korean, Japanese, and other languages could do so. We take no position in the debate of subtitles vs. dubbing, so we provide both..."


Introducing Red Hat Openshift API Management
Red Hat News, April 27th, 2021
For a modern approach to building applications, Kubernetes is only the beginning

"Red Hat has turned Red Hat OpenShift into the leading enterprise Kubernetes platform by giving organizations the hybrid cloud platform they need to build and deploy powerful applications. To build on that, we're providing Red Hat OpenShift API Management, a service for Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated and Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS that will help speed up time-to-value and reduce the costs of delivering API-first, microservices-based applications.

Part of Red Hat's portfolio of managed cloud services, Red Hat OpenShift API Management is about making it easy to focus on application development and deployment, and not on standing up API infrastructure. While an API management service can provide value for your business, its infrastructure is not where your development or operations teams should be (or want to be) focusing their efforts..."


Open hybrid cloud is Red Hat's vision for the future of IT and it spans everything we do, from driving research and education in open source technology to making it the focal point of our company strategy and product portfolio

"Since its launch, we've heard about the tangible benefits that Red Hat Insights has provided our Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) customers, like simplifying operational, security, and - most recently - business related tasks. That's why I'm excited to announce that we are expanding Insights to drive towards a holistic view across IT environments, and into Red Hat OpenShift and Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform.

Insights provides visibility, risk identification, remediation guidance and help resolving problems at scale.This common set of hosted services enable leaders throughout the organization, regardless of their focus area or IT domain, to see operational and security risk, and cost utilization, across their open hybrid cloud environments so they can streamline IT, security and business operations..."
