Red Hat Pairs Innovation with Stability in Latest Version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 for Digital Transformation

Red Hat, Inc., the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.3, the latest version of the world’s leading enterprise Linux platform. Generally available in the coming weeks, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.3 fuses the stability required by IT operations teams with cloud-native innovation, providing a more stable platform for next-generation enterprise applications. Already an established backbone for mission-critical computing, the latest enhancements to the platform bring new performance profiles and automation, reinforced security capabilities and updated container tools.

 

According to Red Hat’s Enterprise Open Source Report, 63% of organizations surveyed have a hybrid cloud architecture today, while more than half of those who do not plan to implement one in the next two years. Linux is often a linchpin in hybrid cloud deployments, providing a common operating environment that spans from bare-metal servers to public cloud deployments. As the world’s leading enterprise Linux platform, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.3 is designed to deliver an enterprise-ready, standardized platform for this next wave of computing, helping enterprises transform digitally while retaining existing datacenter investments.

 

Optimized innovation, made more manageable

 

As hybrid cloud computing grows, the ability to manage and optimize the underlying Linux platforms at scale becomes critical. Additionally, IT organizations need to be able to lower the barrier of entry for Linux, enabling systems administrators or IT managers who may be unfamiliar with the operating system to still effectively oversee deployments.

 

To support these needs, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.3 further expands Red Hat System Roles which provide prescriptive and automated ways for operating system-specific configurations. Newly supported roles now include kernel settings, log settings, SAP HANA, SAP NetWeaver and management. System Roles help make common and complex Red Hat Enterprise Linux configurations more consistent, repeatable and accessible to a wider range of skill sets, even across very large IT estates.

 

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.3 refines the platform’s performance with updates to Tuned, a set of pre-configured, architecture-aware performance profiles. Tuned enables IT teams to lean on Red Hat’s extensive multiarchitecture expertise in maximizing performance across hardware architectures. Additionally, Red Hat Insights remains available by default to supported Red Hat Enterprise Linux systems. Red Hat Insights is designed to deliver Red Hat’s decades of Linux know-how as a proactive monitoring and remediation service and now includes administrator views specifically for SAP HANA deployments.

 

Extending Linux’s secure footprint

 

Delivering a more secure platform remains front-and-center in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.3, which adds new Secure Content Automation Protocol (SCAP) profiles for the Center for Internet Security (CIS) Benchmark and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). This helps IT organizations more efficiently and compliantly configure systems to meet a broader range of security best practices and industry/governmental standards.

 

System Roles for security-centric tasks have also been expanded to include identity management configuration, certificate management and Network-Bound Disk Encryption (NBDE). These system roles provide a way for administrators to more rapidly and efficiently extend the security of their systems while reducing the risk of human error when implementing these configurations.

 

A foundation for cloud-native innovation

 

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.3 builds on the initial innovations of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 with updates to Application Streams, where developer frameworks, databases, container tools and other resources are separated from the core foundational components of the operating system. Newly supported developer tools include Node.js 14, Ruby 2.7 and many others, with earlier versions still accessible to maintain production consistency.

 

For building cloud-native applications, the platform adds updated container images for Buildah and Skopeo, intended to help reduce the friction between developer and operations teams in container deployments by making it easier to build and consume containerized applications wherever needed. Podman 2.0 is also included, bringing a new REST API that enables users to retain container code and tooling that previously relied on the Docker Container Engine with greater programmatic control.

 

Availability

 

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.3 will be available in the coming weeks and accessible to all active Red Hat Enterprise Linux subscriptions via the Red Hat Customer Portal.
