Red Hat, Inc., the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, today announced the general availability of Red Hat Advanced Cluster Management for Kubernetes, the latest addition to Red Hat’s portfolio of IT management technologies designed for the hybrid cloud. Red Hat Advanced Cluster Management for Kubernetes is designed to help organizations further extend and scale Red Hat OpenShift with enterprise-grade management capabilities across hybrid and multicloud environments, allowing them to manage multiple Kubernetes clusters and enable multi-cluster application deployments across hybrid clouds while ensuring policy and governance.
Our experience and expertise with Kubernetes, starting with the project’s founding, paired with offering the industry’s most comprehensive enterprise Kubernetes platform in Red Hat OpenShift, makes Red Hat well-positioned to address the new management needs of the cloud-native era.
Modern management for modern environments
Application modernization is among today’s top IT priorities, with Red Hat OpenShift providing a powerful, scalable platform for this transformation built on Kubernetes, the de facto standard for modern application infrastructure. But similar to how physical management tools and processes did not work for virtualized environments, tools designed for managing virtual machines are not suited for today’s cloud-native, containerized world. Red Hat Advanced Cluster Management for Kubernetes addresses this need, further expanding what organizations can do with Red Hat OpenShift with the addition of next-generation management capabilities tailored for a cloud-native reality.
Red Hat designed Red Hat Advanced Cluster Management for Kubernetes to provide organizations with tools to support containerized application deployments across multiple clusters, whether an organization is just beginning to explore cloud-native computing or if they are running next-generation workloads in production. Red Hat Advanced Cluster Management for Kubernetes meets organizations where they are on their containerization journey, helping with the immediate concerns of managing multiple clusters while providing future-ready capabilities such as policy enforcement and governance controls.
