SQL Server Comes to RHEL; OpenShift Comes to Azure

Aug 23, 2017

Microsoft and Red Hat expand their partnership.

Red Hat and Microsoft have expanded their partnership this week by bringing some of their core technologies to each other’s platforms. The two companies have worked together to support Windows Server containers natively on Red Hat OpenShift, a Kubernetes-based container application platform.

According to Red Hat, OpenShift will be the first container application platform built from the open source Kubernetes project to support both Linux and Windows container workloads in a single platform across the multiple environments of the hybrid cloud. Red Hat will offer a technology preview of the technology in 2018. Red Hat is also bringing its OpenShift and OpenShift Dedicated to Azure, Microsoft’s cloud platform.

The companies also plan to collaborate on delivering enterprise performance standards and integrated support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux workloads running in Microsoft Azure Stack, an extension of Azure that brings cloud computing to on-premises environments.

The two companies are bringing .NET Core 2.0 as a container in OpenShift and Microsoft’s SQL Server for Linux to Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat OpenShift.

Red Hat said in a press release that the two companies will extend the integrated, co-located Microsoft and Red Hat support to enable these new offerings across platforms.
