Red Hat, CentOS Team on Next-Gen Open-Source Tech
Red Hat, CentOS Team on Next-Gen Open-Source Tech

If you're in the CentOS community you don't have to wait for Red Hat to get some of the technologies that flow from the Red Hat Enterprise Linux platform into CentOS. If you're in the Red Hat Enterprise Linux community, some of the work that’s being done in the CentOS community will find its way into your distribution, said analyst Brad Shimmin.
 



Red Hat and the CentOS Project are working together to build a new CentOS that can drive the development and adoption of next-generation open-source technologies.

Red Hat said the collaboration strengthens its business model by extending its open-source development ecosystem. Red Hat expects that taking a role as a catalyst within the CentOS community will help the company accelerate development of enterprise-grade subscription solutions for customers and partners, such as Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform, Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure, Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization, Red Hat JBoss Middleware, OpenShift by Red Hat, and Red Hat Storage.

"It is core to our beliefs that when people who share goals or problems are free to connect and work together, their pooled innovations can change the world,” said Brian Stevens, executive vice president and chief technology officer at Red Hat. “We believe the open source development process produces better code, and a community of users creates an audience that makes code impactful. Cloud technologies are moving quickly, and increasingly, that code is first landing in Red Hat Enterprise Linux.”

A Key Project

Looking backward helps predict the path forward. Red Hat formed the Fedora Project 10 years ago to deliver advanced features for Linux. Just as a traditional operating system relies on the hardware beneath it, the company said so too do projects such as cloud, virtualization, and software-defined networking rely on the foundation of an operating system.

As Red Hat sees it, fast development pace and openness to change make Fedora an excellent place for operating system innovations and related projects. Likewise, by taking an active role in the CentOS Project, Red Hat is demonstrating its commitment to open source innovation by helping to establish a platform well-suited to the needs of open source developers that integrate technologies in and around the operating system.

Al Gillen, program vice president of System Software at IDC, called CentOS one of the major non-commercial distributions in the industry, and a key adjacent project for many Red Hat Enterprise Linux customers.

“This relationship helps strengthen the CentOS community, and will ensure that CentOS benefits directly from the community-centric development approach that Red Hat both understands and heavily supports,” he said. “Given the growing opportunities for Linux in the market today in areas such as OpenStack, cloud and big data, a stronger CentOS technology backed by the CentOS community -- including Red Hat -- is a positive development that helps the overall industry."
