Red Hat OpenShift 4.10 GA
March 24, 2022
Hat detailed new certifications and capabilities for Red Hat OpenShift
aimed at accelerating the delivery of intelligent applications across
the hybrid cloud. These enhancements, including the certification of Red
Hat OpenShift with NVIDIA AI Enterprise 2.0, as well as the general
availability of Red Hat OpenShift 4.10, are intended to help
organizations deploy, manage and scale artificial intelligence (AI)
workloads with confidence.
While AI is transforming how enterprises do business,
operationalizing an AI infrastructure can be complex and time- and
resource-intensive. To help accelerate the process, Red Hat OpenShift is
now certified and supported with the NVIDIA AI Enterprise 2.0 software
suite, an end-to-end, cloud-native suite of AI and data analytics
software that runs on mainstream, NVIDIA-Certified Systems. The
integrated platform delivers NVIDIA’s flagship AI software, the NVIDIA
AI Enterprise suite, optimized for Red Hat OpenShift. With NVIDIA AI
Enterprise on Red Hat OpenShift, data scientists and developers can more
quickly train models, build them into applications and deploy at scale.
Red Hat OpenShift 4.10 continues the platform’s expansion to support a broad spectrum of cloud-native workloads across the open hybrid cloud, enabling organizations to run AI/ML workloads in even more environments. The latest version of OpenShift adds support for additional public clouds and hardware architectures, providing organizations the flexibility to choose where to run their applications by making development as easy and as consistent as possible. New features and capabilities designed to accelerate
AI/ML workloads include:
Running Red Hat OpenShift on Arm® processors. Arm support will be available in two ways: full stack automation IPI for Amazon Web Services (AWS) and user provisioned (UPI) for bare-metal on pre-existing infrastructure. This provides users with the same experience they've come to expect from Red Hat OpenShift on AWS, backed by the latest Arm-based instances.
Red Hat OpenShift availability on NVIDIA LaunchPad. NVIDIA LaunchPad provides free access to curated labs for enterprise IT and AI professionals to experience NVIDIA-accelerated systems and software. With Red Hat OpenShift now available on LaunchPad, enterprises can get hands-on lab experience configuring, optimizing and orchestrating resources for AI and data science workloads using NVIDIA AI Enterprise with Red Hat.
Better oversight and compliance features for diverse, modern workloads
Managing diverse, modern workloads can frequently require additional oversight and governance. To help users support their regulatory standard enforcement programs, Red Hat OpenShift 4.10 includes three new compliance operators that enable users to check their cluster for compliance and remediate identified issues.
The compliance profiles include:
North American Electric Reliability Corporation Critical Infrastructure Protection (NAERC CIP), a set of requirements to address the security needs associated with operating North America's bulk electric system.
FedRAMP Moderateimpact level, the standard for cloud computing security for controlled, unclassified information across federal government agencies.
Additionally, Red Hat OpenShift 4.10 includes the general availability
of sandboxed containers. Sandboxed containers provide an optional
additional layer of isolation for workloads with stringent
application-level security requirements. Improvements have also been
made to OpenShift in disconnected or air-gapped settings, simplifying
the process of installing disconnected OpenShift clusters. This
simplifies maintaining mirrors of OpenShift images and keeping them up
to date as if they were a connected cluster.
NVIDIA Enterprise AI 2.0 on Red Hat OpenShift and Red Hat OpenShift 4.10 are now generally available.
