Red Hat debuts edge features for Linux, Kubernetes platform security | #linux | #linuxsecurity | #cybersecurity | #infosecurity | #hacker

Red Hat, one of the open source software world’s biggest players, rolled out a raft of new features for its flagship enterprise Linux distribution — several of which were focused on edge computing — this week at its annual summit gathering.

The Red Hat Edge initiative is a project designed to streamline the processes of deploying and managing edge infrastructure, and, under its banner, the company announced several new features like automation technology via Ansible and advanced cluster management for Kubernetes, among others.

The idea here is to build on Red Hat’s core enterprise Linux and OpenShift platforms to offer new ways to deploy edge technology. 

Zero-touch provisioning of devices via OpenShift is one key new feature, along with predesigned “validated patterns” to provide a quick and easy basis for deploying new edge software stacks, whether for computer makers looking to simplify sales or enterprises looking to design their own tech.

In addition, a technology preview of more edge-appropriate OpenShift deployment models — including, for the first time, support for single-node OpenShift — is also now available.

“Edge computing is no longer an emerging concept for the business … but, at the same time [teams] must address an entirely new set of challenges,” said Red Hat vice president and general manager of in-vehicle operating system and edge Francis Chow, in a statement announcing the new initiative.
