An Intellyx Brain Candy Brief

At this week’s Red Hat Summit in San Francisco, Red Hat is making a number of product update announcements. Of particular interest: merging the CoreOS Tectonic container management product into Red Hat’s flagship PaaS, OpenShift.

Red Hat acquired CoreOS in February, largely to round out its Kubernetes-based container offerings (see my article for Forbes on the acquisition). The addition of Tectonic adds automated operations and a variety of container management capabilities to OpenStack, including install, upgrades, monitoring, metering, and chargeback.

By fully merging Tectonic into OpenShift and retiring the Tectonic brand, Red Hat is positioning OpenShift as the platform of choice for enterprise container deployments.
