Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.2 Beta brings improved container support

4/09/2015 by Sharon Shahzad


RHEL is optimizing its operating systems for those who are planning to deploy containers.

Red Hat has announced the release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7.2 beta. In addition to the typical updates, the release will make it easier for businesses to build and deploy Linux containers. This release also brings some refreshment to the RHEL desktop with rebasing it to GNOME 3.14 desktop and package GNOME Software.

It’s a memory hog -- and we’ve got the numbers to prove it.

The beta improves the platform's underlying container support infrastructure, including OverlayFS and user namespaces. These improvements will assist customers in containerizing existing (traditional) applications and at the same time develop new applications based on a micro services style architecture.

What users won’t find in the RHEL 7.2 Beta is Red Hat Enterprise Linux Atomic Host, their container-optimized host platform because it is updated on a rapid 6-week sprint cycle.
