Red Hat is the top Linux hybrid cloud platform because it leads innovative edge computing. It extends the hybrid cloud for enterprises, operations, and providers to the datasource and end user. It simplifies image creation while reducing update sizes and unnecessary downtime to deploy RHEL on the edge of disconnected bare metal. 

RHEL 8.4 includes updated container tools Podman 3.0, Buildah 1.9, Skopeo 1.2, and more. Podman includes auto update for containers. Container images and containerized applications are updated by reduced footprint size and attack surfaces. Additionally, Red Hat’s new Universal Base Image provides a smaller base container image than the previous minimum. 

RHEL modernizes your enterprise with updated application streams that leverage the most recent database technology. These include PostgreSQL 13, Redis 6, and MariaDB 10.5. PostgreSQL 13 improves database performance, especially for cloud. Redis 6 boosts performance by enhancing database security and client-side caching. MariaDB 10.5 leverages new database features in app building. Updates to RHEL application runtime includes Python 3.9, Go 1.15, Rust 1.49, and LLVM toolset. 

Red Hat Linux includes Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux) and Mandatory Access Controls (MAC). These built-in security features help meet regulatory compliance. RHEL is the first Linux container framework support to be Common Criteria certified. It is also FIPS 140-2 certified. 

Ntegral certified images are always up-to-date, secure, and built to work right out of the box. 

Ntegral packages applications following industry standards, and continuously monitors all components and libraries for vulnerabilities and application updates. When any security threat or update is identified, Ntegral automatically repackages the applications and pushes the latest versions to the cloud marketplaces.
