Red Hat has announced the general availability of the latest versions of Kubernetes-based Red Hat OpenShift and Red Hat OpenShift Container Storage.
Red Hat OpenShift 4.3 delivers FIPS (Federal Information Processing Standard) compliant encryption and additional security enhancements to enterprises across industries. It also features support for remote enablement of Linux Unified Key Setup-on-disk-format (LUKS) encrypted volumes and the ability to encrypt sensitive data stored in etcd. These new features can help protect sensitive customer data with stronger encryption controls, according to the company.
Enhanced with multicloud gateway technology from Red Hat’s acquisition of NooBaa, OpenShift Container Storage 4 is said to bring enhanced built-in data protection features, such as encryption, anonymization, key separation and erasure coding.
OpenShift Container Storage 4 is deployed and managed by Operators, bringing automated lifecycle management to the storage layer, and helping with easier day 2 management.
OpenShift 4.3 will be available by the end of January 2020.
