Red Hat and Microsoft Simplify Containers For The Enterprise

Microsoft Corp. and Red Hat Inc. today announced an expansion of the two companies’ alliance with new initiatives aimed at enabling enterprises to more easily adopt containers. This includes native support for Windows Server containers on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated on Microsoft Azure, and SQL Server on Red Hat Enterprise Linux and OpenShift. These additions to the companies’ joint roadmap will simplify container technologies to help enterprise customers increase agility and drive digital transformation using hybrid cloud. 

 Continuing their commitment to deliver choice and flexibility to enterprise customers, Red Hat and Microsoft will extend the integrated, co-located Microsoft and Red Hat support to enable these new offerings across platforms. This helps to assure IT organizations that whatever challenges they face on their path to digital transformation, Microsoft and Red Hat will stand by them together.
