Announcement: RHEL Atomic Host now generally available

Atomic_host_logoRed Hat “has announced the general availability of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 Atomic Host, an operating system optimized for running the next generation of applications with Linux containers.”

“Based on RHEL, Red Hat Enterprise Linux Atomic Host enables enterprises to embrace a container-based architecture to take advantage of the benefits of development and deployment flexibility and simplified maintenance, without sacrificing performance, stability, security, or the value of Red Hat’s vast certified ecosystem.

“For building and maintaining container infrastructure, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 Atomic Host provides many benefits, including:

  • Atomic updating and rollback through an image-like update mechanism.
  • Container images in docker format can be deployed and run as application containers.
  • Certification and support, along with a chain of trust for containers built using platform images provided by Red Hat.
  • Container orchestration at scale through Kubernetes, creating large-scale business applications from discrete services deployed in containers across clusters of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 Atomic Host.
  • Stronger security by default through SELinux, cgroups and kernel namespaces, isolating each container in a multi-container environment.
  • Support for super-privileged containers enables host management applications to access the host and other containers in a secure manner.”
