Red Hat has announced the general availability of Red Hat Advanced Cluster Management for Kubernetes. The new federated cluster management offering is designed to help organizations further extend and scale Red Hat OpenShift with enterprise-grade management capabilities across hybrid and multicloud environments.
According to the company, Red Hat Advanced Cluster Management for Kubernetes is aimed at providing 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.
It is also said to provide organizations with future-ready capabilities such as policy enforcement and governance controls.
Kubernetes across hybrid clouds, unified on a single control plane Managing clusters across corporate datacenters and public cloud deployments frequently requires fragmented sets of tools tailored only for specific environments. Multiple management consoles, user interfaces, logins and more can create manual processes that are prone to human error, which in turn can lead to unnecessary downtime or put systems at risk of security or regulatory failures.
Red Hat Advanced Cluster Management for Kubernetes is said to help eliminate these barriers to cloud-native management across hybrid clouds. It provides a single view to manage your Kubernetes clusters—from Red Hat OpenShift deployed on premise and in public clouds, as well as clusters from public cloud providers like Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, IBM and Microsoft Azure.
From the datacenter to the edge and beyond, Red Hat Advanced Cluster Management for Kubernetes is said to enable organizations to scale cloud-native applications from development to production across hybrid clouds, all managed from a single point of control.
