Red Hat said it’s prioritizing the enterprise adoption of edge compute architectures with new cross-portfolio announcements. The company made a number of edge-related product announcements on Tuesday. They took against the backdrop of Red Hat Summit, a mostly virtual event with a physical counterpart in Boston, emphasizing scalability and manageability across hybrid cloud topologies and strong IT security.
Red Hat’s edge play consists of “a set of new cross-portfolio edge features and capabilities,” it said, with the goal of helping Red Hat customers adapt to edge computing. Red Hat wants to make it easer and faster to deploy edge solutions, and thinks it can help by improving edge security and app lifecycle management.
