BOSTON—This year's Red Hat Summit brought together the company's executives, customers and partners from June 23 to 26 to discuss technology trends and product innovation. A key theme this year was Docker container technology, with Red Hat announcing its Atomic Enterprise Platform and the OpenShift Enterprise 3 platform. Atomic Enterprise brings an enterprise-grade supported host platform for the deployment and orchestration for Docker containers, while OpenShift is a platform-as-a-service offering targeting developers building, managing and deploying containers. At the conference, Red Hat CEO Jim Whitehurst emphasized that open-source technology's value isn't just about licensed code, but about collaboration and communities. No Red Hat Summit event would be complete without at least one session on the roadmap for the core Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) platform, and the 2015 event was no exception. The next major update for the platform, RHEL 7.2, will include new performance capabilities for virtualization, security and networking. Here's a look at highlights from the event.
