  • Red Hat is still best known for its Linux distribution, but the company has also long offered its own OpenStack distribution and additional services as well.
  • This update includes all of the usual stability improvements and bug fixes, but what’s probably most important for the distribution in the long run is that Red Hat is now starting to move all of its OpenStack platform to containers.
  • Version 12 of the platform is based on the OpenStack Pike release, the 16th release of OpenStack, which launched just over two months ago.
  • Red Hat already has quite a bit of experience with containers and the Kubernetes orchestration engine thanks to its OpenShift platform.
