OKD: Renaming of OpenShift Origin with 3.10 release

[We are reposting on the Red Hat Developers blog this article from the Red Hat OpenShift blog, which was written by Diane Mueller-Klingspor.]

When we released OpenShift Origin as the open source upstream project for Red Hat OpenShift back in April 2012, we had little inkling of the phenomenal trajectory of cloud-native technology that was to come. With all the work that has gone into the Kubernetes-based core platform (OpenShift 3) from the initial OpenShift Origin 1.0 Release (OpenShift 3) in June 2015, to the current release of Red Hat OpenShift 3.10 release last week, we’ve seen the rise of Kubernetes and containers create the basis of the cloud-native landscape. We collaborated in the incubation and maturation of dozens of new cloud-native projects and into a myriad of upstream projects, expanding the universe of tools and platforms in a way we could only have dreamed about just three years ago.

So it’s time for a new logo, a new website, and a new name for our open source project. We are changing the name of our open source project to better represent who we are today, and who we’ll be tomorrow—the Origin community distribution of Kubernetes that powers Red Hat OpenShift.

Collaboration in open source license enforcement — a community movement is happening

[We are reposting on the Red Hat Developers blog this article from the Red Hat blog, which was written by David Levine, assistant general counsel at Red Hat.]

“Discourage litigation. Persuade your neighbors to compromise whenever you can.”

This was Abraham Lincoln speaking in the mid-1800s but his advice is still relevant today. Litigation is almost always a poor tool for fostering collaboration, whether among neighbors or software developers.

In approaching the topic of open source license enforcement, it is important to consider Lincoln’s advice. Collaboration during open source license enforcement is a key to successful compliance just as it is an important element to success in the software development process. In assessing license enforcement tactics, you need to ask whether they will foster greater collaboration in open source software development. If the ultimate result of excessive or abusive enforcement is that developers and enterprises are turned off from participating in upstream open source communities, the ecosystems will wither and we all suffer as a result.

Sabre chooses Red Hat OpenShift for cloud-native DevOps platform

As part of its strategy to re-imagine the business of travel, Sabre Corporation today announced that it will leverage Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform as the foundation for its Next Generation Platform initiative. OpenShift will be the basis of a modern architecture that includes microservices, development and operations (DevOps), and a multi-faceted cloud strategy to lead an industry evolution in the future of retailing, distribution, and fulfillment through innovative technology. OpenShift, built on containers and Kubernetes, is the the industry’s leading enterprise Kubernetes platform for running existing and cloud-native applications in any cloud.

“The Next Generation Platform is the cornerstone of Sabre’s long-term technology strategy,” said Vish Saoji, Sabre CTO. “Red Hat has delivered the enterprise-hardened software environment we need to help drive our technology transformation, and this collaboration allows us to build upon that architecture and execute our plan.”

Announcing Red Hat Application Migration Toolkit 4.1.0: Now with technical reports

[In case you aren’t following the Red Hat JBoss Middleware blog, we are reposting this article on developers.redhat.com.]

Red Hat Application Migration Toolkit (RHAMT) 4.1.0 has been released, and with it a new feature that I’d like to highlight in this article—Technology Reports.

If you’re not familiar with RHAMT, check out my previous article that introduces RHAMT and describes how you can use it to help with migration existing applications to a modern application platform by analyzing your code base.

Technology reports

This new feature in RHAMT provides an aggregate listing of the technologies used, grouped by function, for the analyzed applications. It shows how the technologies are distributed. After analysis has been performed, using this report hundreds of applications can be quickly compared. In addition, the size, number of libraries, and story point totals of each application are displayed, allowing you to quickly determine each application’s type from a single report, for example:

From Localhost to the Cloud: Helping Organizations Develop Applications in a Hybrid World

For many developers, desktop tools are where they spend most of their time and feel most comfortable. We also recognize that developers are looking for new ways to build applications and new tools that are designed for these technologies. Developers are now using the cloud to host and manage their developer environment, and we see the tools that developers use moving to the cloud as well.

In the past year, we have taken steps to broaden our portfolio of developer tools. We acquired Codenvy to provide unique container-native offerings for our users, and we have been building Red Hat OpenShift.io, our SaaS offering for cloud-native development.

Today, we are announcing two more leaps toward a container- and cloud-native future:
