Red Hat announced during Red Hat Summit 2016 a new set of Linux container solutions for the enterprise, including free development tools, a comprehensive container platform that integrates management, Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Containers-as-a-Service (CaaS).
This new offering enables customers to leverage the full benefits of containerization with more secure, portable and consistent container-based solutions, supporting key open standards such as the Open Container Initiative (OCI) container format and Kubernetes orchestration.

-A hardened and reliable Linux container operating system via Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat Enterprise Linux Atomic Host.
-A comprehensive enterprise container development and deployment platform tailored to a wide range of use cases in Red Hat OpenShift.
