Review: OpenShift 3 rocks Docker containers
InfoWorld – November 18, 2015
“Last year OpenShift [by Red Hat] 2 was my favorite open source PaaS [Platform-as-a-Service]. I said at the time, 'OpenShift is outstandingly easy to use, manage, and install' ... Since then, OpenShift has undergone a complete rewrite to use Docker containers, instead of 'cartridges' and 'gears,' to deploy applications. In theory, that should make the OpenShift PaaS even simpler to use and give it an even larger pool of languages and applications, thanks to the containers already on Docker Hub ... OpenShift Enterprise is the most stable and typically the biggest deal to install. You need to create a master, the infrastructure (the registry, router, and storage), and at least two nodes, and that involves starting with RHEL [Red Hat Enterprise Linux] and adding Docker, Kubernetes, and finally OpenShift ...

State of the Red Hat Union is Secure
Red Hat Blog – December 22, 2015
“As we think about 2016 and beyond, it’s critical to recognize that we are building tomorrow’s IT legacy today. The next generation of technologists will inherit the decisions we make now just like we are dealing now with the legacy decisions made by the generation before us … Ask yourself how much flexibility, portability, and choice your technology decisions will give you in the future. Open source and open APIs [application program interfaces] give you the broadest range of options moving forward as you migrate more of your enterprise’s applications to the cloud. Red Hat believes that open source not only offers faster innovation, but [also] the freedom and flexibility to help organizations escape legacy decisions tied to single vendors.”

Red Hat has been investing in emerging technologies, such as cloud software standard OpenStack, and making acquisitions.”

ZDNet – January 4, 2016
“In 2015, Microsoft embraced Linux, Apple open-sourced its newest, hottest programming language, and the cloud couldn't run without Linux and open-source software ... Today's Microsoft isn't Gates or Ballmer's Microsoft. Today's Microsoft has brought .NET Core to Linux … As for the cloud, which is where all IT work is headed, much of it already runs Linux and uses open-source server programs. As Mark Russinovich, CTO of Microsoft Azure, said last fall, '[O]ne in four instances [on Azure] are Linux.' And Amazon Web Services (AWS), the biggest cloud of all? ... It runs on a customized version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) code. Looking ahead, this trend will only continue. OpenStack, a pure open-source cloud play with vast support, continues to grow in popularity.”
