RHEL 8 now available and these are its most outstanding news


Yesterday, Red Hat had the pleasure of announce RHEL8, which is the acronym for Red Hat Enterprise Linux. This release comes almost five years after the release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 and comes with exciting new features and general system optimizations that will allow us to run any environment and support any workload. Not for nothing is it the leading Linux-based operating system in business use, thanks to its unique technology that is what companies need (as an X-Buntu user… I don't know what to think).

As they inform us, «Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 is the reengineered operating system for the hybrid cloud era and built to support the workloads and operations that extend from enterprise data centers to multiple public clouds.«. They also tell us about the AI, something that begins to be the present but that will be even more important in the future.

RHEL 8 has received major optimizations

Among the novelties that arrive with RHEL 8 we have:

  • The Red Hat Management plug-in for configuring, managing, patching, and provisioning Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 development across hybrid clouds.
  • Applications Streams, consisting of fast-moving frameworks, programming languages, and programming tools that will be updated frequently.
  • Enhancements to the administration and management areas to make them more accessible to new administration systems, Windows administrators, and Linux beginners with Red Hat Enterprise Linux system roles for automating complex tasks.
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux web console to manage and monitor the health status of our Red Hat Enterprise Linux system.
  • Support for OpenSSL 1.1.1 and TLS 1.3 cryptographic standards.
  • Support for the Red Hat Container tool for creating, running, and sharing containerized applications.
  • Improvements in support for ARM and Power architectures, SAP and real-time applications.
