We’re very excited about this week’s announcement from Red Hat, one of our technology alliance partners, about the public release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8. This announcement was made during the Red Hat Summit conference in Boston, where Dynatrace presented as one of the platinum partners.
RHEL 8 brings a number of long-awaited enhancements to the RHEL family: refreshed system kernel, improved system performance and security, application streams, and numerous other updates, all optimized for hybrid cloud environments.
We’re expecting RHEL and Dynatrace customers to start the migration process to RHEL 8 soon. We’re happy to say that we’ve already tested OneAgent version 1.167 with RHEL 8 and we’re now in the process of wrapping up the certification process for Dynatrace OneAgent with Red Hat. We strive to make the migration to RHEL 8 as smooth as possible and to leave no blind spots in Application Performance Management for our customers.
Please join us in congratulating Red Hat on this release, and stay tuned for further announcements.
