Red Hat Introduces Image Mode for RHEL


The new deployment method delivers the platform as a container image.

Red Hat is now offering Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) as a container image. According to the website, this new deployment method reduces complexity and “harnesses the power of containers to bring all aspects of IT management into a single workflow.”

Additionally, image mode for RHEL means:

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux users can benefit from greater simplification and portability across all of their environments that span the hybrid cloud.
  • DevOps teams can more easily plug RHEL into their CI/CD and GitOps workflows.
  • Security teams can apply container security tools, from scanning and validation to cryptography and attestation to the base elements of the operating system.
  • Solution providers can more easily build, test, and distribute RHEL-based applications.

This technical blog post by Ben Breard explains the concepts behind image mode as well as “foundational concepts required to package operating systems in Open Container Initiative (OCI) container images.”
