RHEL 8 Update


The latest release of Red Hat's flagship product is engineered to help enterprises reach new horizons.

Now, you can offer the apps that developers want, independent of OS releases. Use application streams to separate applications from the base OS so you can update apps without having to wait for the next major version of the operating system

Developers can choose from the most recent stable development languages, databases, tools, and container technologies on the latest hardware and cloud environments.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 is the OS that gives developers the freedom to focus on their code.
