This week Red Hat released Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.4 beta bringing with it new new capabilities and features for your open hybrid cloud. I've been looking forward to this release and can't wait to try out some of the new data visualizations.
I have to tell you I just love testing out new Linux beta's. I think it has something to do with being on the bleeding edge of technology and sharing what I've learned with the beta team and broader community. So I was excited to see Fedora Linux 34 Beta available.
VMware Photon OS version 4 has been released. It's small footprint and fast boot times make it ideal for vSphere and cloud deployments. I'm looking forward to trying this out on my Raspberry Pi. Download the latest version and introduce it to your development team.
Red Hat recently announced a move away from CentOS Linux to CentOS Stream. CentOS Stream is a ‘rolling preview’ of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and updated several times a day from that code base.
Last week Ubuntu 20.04 LTS: Focal Fossa was released and for those new to Ubuntu, this is a 'Long Term Support" release which is published every two years in April. These are typically the most widely used versions of Ubuntu as they are enterprise-grade.
