Red Hat Developer Newsletter – August 2014
Welcome to the Red Hat® Developer Newsletter.
As we’re in the season for covering our arms and faces with sunscreen, here’s another ARM for your attention.
Last month, Red Hat announced the launch of the Red Hat ARM Partner Early Access Program to enhance partner collaboration and facilitate partner-initiated system designs—based on the 64-bit capable ARMv8-A architecture—that include Red Hat software.
The program is aimed at silicon vendors, independent hardware vendors (IHVs), original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), and original design manufacturers (ODMs), and launches with participation and support from several ARM ecosystem leaders, including: AMD, American Megatrends, Inc., AppliedMicro, ARM, Broadcom, Cavium, Dell, HP and Linaro. Learn more about the Red Hat ARM Partner Early Access Program.

How Red Hat’s Inception DevOps team utilized Docker for the Release Engine, by Ryan Cook, Red Hat
Red Hat’s Team Inception has been working on a release engine to automate RPM code deployments within Red Hat IT. On July 8, we passed a significant milestone by successfully using Release Engine in our QA environment. This was an incredible achievement that included a number of feature requests, defect fixes, and collaboration between multiple teams to produce an open source application to address growing needs internally in Red Hat IT. Since we’re attempting to make waves internally, we decided to use a product currently making waves throughout the industry—choosing Docker. Read the entire blog post.
Read on for more Docker-related topics.
In June, Red Hat:
- Introduced support for Docker in Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® 7.
- Launched Project Atomic to redefine the operating system for the paradigm shift to application-centric IT and provide a new lightweight container host.
- Announced a new certification for containerized applications.
Google has also announced support for Docker in Google Compute Engine, enabling customers to easily deploy their Docker containers in the cloud.
In July, Red Hat announced that as part of Project Atomic, we are collaborating with Google to tackle the challenge of how to manage Docker containers at scale, across hundreds or thousands of hosts. Docker container orchestration and management is critical for Red Hat customers and products like Red Hat Enterprise Linux and OpenShift by Red Hat.
Today we are running hundreds of thousands of containerized applications in OpenShift Online and enabling customers to host their own containerized PaaS environment in OpenShift Enterprise. Read the entire press release.

Securing Docker’s FUTURE WITH SELINUX AND THE OPEN SOURCE WAY, by Diane Mueller, Red Hat
“With all [the Docker] momentum, comes a higher level of visibility and scrutiny. And in just a blink of the internets, the inevitable happened. The buzz went from Docker is going to Save the Planet headlines to the announcement of Docker’s first security ‘exploit’ on HackerNews. The good news is that the community stepped up quickly to provide a fix and Docker 1.1 has been released already.”
