Red Hat pairs Kubernetes with cloud infrastructure in latest version of Red Hat Cloud Suite

Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), a provider of open source solutions, has launched the latest version of Red Hat Cloud Suite, the company said.

As cloud-native, containerized applications grow in importance to CIOs focused on enterprise digital transformation, IT infrastructure and management technologies need to adapt to the unique needs posed by modern applications, while still maintaining existing systems.

Along with Red Hat CloudForms for hybrid and multi-cloud management, Red Hat Cloud Suite offers a unified, pre-integrated solution for enterprises seeking to advance Linux containers from the developer workstation to mission-critical deployments at cloud-scale for a more digitally-transformed enterprise.
