Defining application life cycles can give you a more structured approach to designing, building and delivering applications that meet user needs and business objectives. From initial development, through production deployment, to ongoing management and optimization, well-planned application life cycles help you deliver solutions that remain more adaptive and resilient over time. With the new capabilities of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 8.10, you can better speed and simplify application life cycles—including development, deployment and management tasks—on a trusted and more reliable software foundation.

Develop innovative new solutions

Building and deploying modern, cloud-native applications can help you enhance customer experiences, streamline operations and increase agility. With advanced technologies available in Application Streams, you can develop new, innovative applications that set your business apart, helping you capture new market share and stay ahead of the competition. New Application Streams in RHEL 8.10 include:

  • PHP 8.2. Increase application performance and stability with this major update of the PHP language—including new features like read-only classes, object-oriented random number generator application programming interfaces (APIs), and additional standalone types.
  • Python 3.12. Simplify development processes with new optimizations and features such as flexible f-string parsing, a new API for debugging and profiling, and support for isolated subinterpreters and the Linux performance profiler in traces.
  • PostgreSQL 16. Speed database workloads with added features and enhancements, including parallel hash join, logical replication from standby servers, large transactions in parallel, improved statistics monitoring, and new SQL/JSON constructors and identity functions.
  • Ruby 3.3. Reduce application memory use and runtime with new enhancements such as the Prism parser and a pure-Ruby just-in-time (JIT) compiler.
  • MariaDB 10.11. Protect sensitive data with new server and administrator authentication features and boost application performance with optimizer and replication improvements.
  • Nginx 1.24. Enhance content and application delivery with new features such as improved header handling and optimized memory use.
  • Compiler toolkits. Streamline application development with new tool versions, including LLVM 17Rust 1.75, and Go 1.21.

Build and deploy applications everywhere

Containers provide for simplified application deployment and help provide greater consistency and flexibility across diverse hybrid cloud environments. A key container technology, Podman is an open source tool for developing, managing and running containers. Podman 4.9—included with RHEL—contains new features.

  • Ease multiarchitecture container builds with the multi-arch build farm feature that lets you dispatch builds to Podman hosts on different platforms.
  • Simplify management of complex flag sets by combining multiple command line options in a single, reusable module.
  • Streamline Containerfiles using Heredoc syntax to include short scripts and files, and view partial progress reports with the Podman REST API.
  • Increase the resilience of your containers when abnormal terminations occur with SQLite—the default database for new installations.
  • Automate deployment of production-ready container workloads on edge devices with the Podman system role—one of many system roles that simplify RHEL system management across on-site infrastructure, cloud resources, and edge devices.

Provide more consistent, reliable user experiences

By automating infrastructure configuration tasks, critical workloads and applications can run uninterrupted and with increased consistency, better reliability and a heightened security posture.

  • With the bootloader system role, you can automate the configuration of kernel command line parameters, timeouts and passwords to improve consistency and simplify system management at scale.
  • The ad_integration system role lets you more flexibly configure dynamic domain name system (DNS) updates on RHEL hosts integrated with Microsoft Active Directory.
  • Using the fapolicyd system role, you can increase hybrid cloud security with automatic fapolicyd deployment and configuration to allow or deny application executions at scale.

When failures occur, rapid data and system recovery is crucial to minimize disruptions, restore business operations and mitigate potential losses.

  • The new snapshot system role provides faster, more predictable and repeatable data backup and recovery at scale through automated creation and management of point-in-time snapshots of logical volume manager (LVM) storage volumes.
  • With the high availability clustering system role, you can configure quorum device (qdevice) options and fencing topologies for additional flexibility when systems become unresponsive.
  • And if an SAP HANA index server fails, new features in the RHEL High Availability Add-On automatically switch processes to secondary nodes to shorten recovery times and increase data availability.

Extending the life of your operating system foundation beyond 5 more years

All major releases of RHEL follow a standard 10-year life cycle. Following release 8.10, RHEL 8 enters the maintenance support phase for the next 5 years. During this time, Red Hat will provide technical support, security patches and bug fixes released per the RHEL maintenance support phase policy, allowing you to stay on RHEL 8.10 until 2029.

But when you’re ready to move from RHEL 8, Red Hat is ready to help. In-place upgrade tools and detailed guidance can streamline the most complex operating system and application migrations. By partnering with Red Hat Consulting, you can work with teams of experts to plan and execute your upgrade projects.
