Red Hat Brings Red Hat Universal Base Image to Docker Hub


A verified image of Red Hat UBI is now available for developers and admins to use for container and cloud-native deployments.

Red Hat Universal Base Images (UBI) are now available as Verified Publisher images on Docker Hub. According to Stefanie Chiras, senior vice president, and general manager, Red Hat Enterprise Linux Business Unit, this image "provides consumable and redistributable content to the next wave of modern applications and by making it available on Docker Hub, the world’s largest repositories for Linux containers, we’re extending our reach to meet an even broader set of developers and application leaders."

The Red Hat UBI image is an Open Container Initiative-compliant, freely redistributable, container base operating system that includes all of the complimentary runtime languages and packages for container deployment.

Prior to this release, the UBI was only available via the Red Hat container catalog, which means more developers can take advantage of the power, security, and reliability of the Red Hat Universal Base Image.

Developers and admins will find four different configurations of the UBI available:

  • Standard - contains the necessary runtimes and YUM repositories to build, deploy, and share UBI-based containers.
  • Minimal - contains only the bare essentials for a lightweight, RHEL-based image.
  • Multi-service - includes systemd, to run multiple applications and services.
  • Micro - designed specifically for edge computing and other remote applications.

For those interested in getting started, you'll find the UBI images in the Red Hat repository on Docker Hub.
