Red Hat OpenStack tightens OpenShift Kubernetes integration

Pink Hat has released Pink Hat OpenStack System sixteen.two, an update to Pink Hat’s infrastructure-as-a-assistance system that features tighter integration with the company’s OpenShift Kubernetes container system.

With the new integration, users of the two platforms can operate VM-primarily based and container-primarily based programs in parallel with improved network ability, security attributes, storage, and effectiveness, Pink Hat claimed on October thirteen. OpenStack sixteen.two is accessible as a result of the Pink Hat Purchaser Portal by using a Pink Hat membership.

Particular abilities in OpenStack sixteen.two consist of:

  • Flexibility to operate VMs and cloud-native programs in parallel. “Bare metal” effectiveness is available by using integration with OpenShift.
  • An extended lifecycle allowing for for steady function updates without the need of disruption or probable downtime.
  • New hardware choices together with Intel Xeon scalable processors. Users can build hybrid clouds in a manner that satisfies them, factoring in core architecture to hardware offloading with smartNICs.
  • Storage has been produced a lot easier by aggregating a selection of suppliers and formats.
  • For edge connectivity and software availability, availability zone consciousness is available by using Open Digital Networking (OVN). Operators can set up nodes in teams, primarily based on a geographic locale, energy sources, and probable for downtime.

New developer services, meanwhile, mechanically connect popular databases, message queues, and much more to programs as they are designed.
  • Pink Hat OpenShift four.9 and Pink Hat Innovative Cluster Administration for Kubernetes two.four have been unveiled, meant to supply for regularity in hybrid cloud networks. Solitary-node OpenShift is highlighted for a little Kubernetes cluster. Prior OpenShift topologies have integrated a few-node clusters and remote employee nodes.
