Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform 3.3, bringing new developer features and deployment scalability, on a secure enterprise container platform, to improve application delivery across the hybrid cloud. Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform supports organizations as they build and maintain both cloud-native and traditional applications, providing a solution they can use across the application lifecycle, from development to production.

Powered by open industry standards and built on the trusted foundation of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform 3.3 offers a single platform delivering Linux container and container orchestration innovation, along with application development and deployment capabilities, in a hardened, enterprise-ready product. Red Hat is a leading contributor to both the Docker and Kubernetes projects and the latest version of Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform provides an enterprise version of Kubernetes 1.3 and the Docker container runtime, built on a foundation of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 , helping customers enjoy the benefits of rapid innovation while retaining the stability, reliability and security of an enterprise platform.

New features in Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform 3.3 include:

Enhancements to developer productivity and agility

In the modern IT organization, developers need to deliver better applications and application updates, faster. Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform helps address this need by bringing new automation capabilities to the application development lifecycle, via new continuous delivery pipelines based on the Jenkins Pipeline project and an aggregated developer dashboard that shows a unified view of application pipelines. Additional new features provide improved A/B testing automation through granular control of application routing configurations through OpenShift’s integrated routing and software-defined networking capabilities.

Deployments at cloud-scale

As the move to the cloud demands more scalability and flexibility in computing platforms, Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform 3.3 helps deliver greatly improved platform scalability, a substantial need for organizations operating mission-critical applications at scale,supporting up to 1,000 nodes per computing cluster. This enables larger scale deployments to support not only new applications but also existing legacy applications in hybrid cloud environments, helping enterprises retain existing application investments without sacrificing innovation. Additionally, the inherent Kubernetes capabilities of Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform can now proactively monitor for and prevent against resource starvation and unplanned downtime. 

Enterprise-grade security

Security is one of the key concerns for organizations adopting Linux Containers technology. OpenShift provides a secure, enterprise-ready container platform, which includes support that extends from the Linux operating system, to the container platform, and to integrated application services. OpenShift includes Red Hat Enterprise Linux, the most trusted and secure enterprise Linux platform, and inherits all of its security features and ongoing updates. Security features extend to the Docker container runtime, which is integrated with Security Enhanced Linux for additional multi-tenant security, and to OpenShift’s integrated container registry, which allows administrators to manage their Docker-formatted container images and allows them to control access and image updates. Additional registry enhancements have been added to OpenShift Container Platform 3.3, spanning users, teams and their projects, including the ability to view image details and manage access to images. OpenShift also provides integrated user authorization and roles-based access controls for Kubernetes that integrate with enterprise LDAP-systems, as well as integrated security policies for container execution, so administrators can control user user access, permissions, quotas and access to pull and run container images all in one place. 

Red Hat’s expanded container portfolio spans private and fully managed public cloud offerings, supporting the different aspects of the application development process in one solution that can span multiple infrastructures and offer containers-as-a-service. These infrastructure environments include Red Hat OpenShift Container Local, included in the Red Hat Container Developer Kit, Red Hat OpenShift Container Lab, OpenShift Online and OpenShift Dedicated. Red Hat’s portfolio of container-optimized solutions includes storage, application services and management offerings, in addition to free development tools.

Availability

Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform 3.3 will be available for customer download on Sept. 27, 2016. The OpenShift Online and OpenShift Dedicated platforms are scheduled for update shortly following the availability of Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform 3.3.

Red Hat Open Innovation Labs: Jump-starting innovation through containers and DevOps

In April 2016, Red Hat launched Red Hat Open Innovation Labs as a consulting service that helps companies integrate people, methodology, and technology to solve business challenges in an accelerated fashion. In an Open Innovation Labs engagement, customers work collaboratively in a residency-oriented environment, using OpenShift Container Platform as a foundation for applying lean and agile principles to bridge traditional and contemporary application development.
