Link: Red Hat tries CoreOS on for size – and buys

‘The elder open source software biz sees the younger firm’s technology helping it automate and simplify its OpenShift container app platform, as well as improving its security and application portability in hybrid cloud environments.

It characterizes them as complementary to its own wares, althugh its plans may involve “integrating products and migrating customers to any combined offerings” at some later date.’

Ansible driving millions in sales

“Ansible, a DevOps automation engine that’s often used with Kubernetes deployments, was big, responsible for six of the quarter’s transactions of over $1 million. This included one deal valued at over $5 million — “our largest deal ever for Ansible,” according to Shander.”

Also, updates on RHEL, OpenStack, and OpenShift. And Oracle.

RedHat selling more OpenStack, e.g., to Verizon

Whitehurst thinks no one is paying enough attention to Open Stack, the freely-available software stack. “We had three deals over a million dollars last quarter,” for Open Stack, said Whitehurst. “We are finally seeing it move into production in a pretty significant scale. Verizon [Communications] and others are running our Open Stack, and so to reach that production point is pretty exciting.”
