Red Hat Blog - Un-Storage for the modern enterprise
Today's enterprises need data so accessible, so scalable, and so versatile that traditional storage seems counter-productive. Monolithic, "one size fits all" storage solutions cannot cope with the diversity and scale of modern workloads. At the same time, almost no CIO conversation is complete without the mention of hybrid or multi-cloud, resulting in a sprawl of multi-dimensional workloads across cloud boundaries. Perhaps UnStorage is a better way of describing the future of storage in the era of containers and the open hybrid cloud. Come see us at Red Hat Summit in San Francisco next week, and keep the dialog going on Twitter with #UnStorage.

Red Hat Blog - Introducing the Operator Framework: Building Apps on Kubernetes
To help make it easier to build Kubernetes applications, Red Hat and the Kubernetes open source community today share the Operator Framework -- an open source toolkit designed to manage Kubernetes native applications, called Operators, in a more effective, automated, and scalable way. Learn more about the Operator Framework at https://github.com/operator-framework. A special thanks to the Kubernetes community for working alongside us. If you are at KubeCon 2018 in Europe, join our morning keynote on Thursday, May 3 to learn more about the framework. Can't attend live? We'll host an OpenShift Commons briefing on May 23 at 9 AM PT for a deeper dive on all things Operators.
