StorageOS, a leading provider of software-defined, persistent storage for containers, today announced it is one of the first companies to achieve Red Hat OpenShift Operator Certification. "By collaborating with partners like Supermicro, we're able to provide organizations with a foundation for the hybrid cloud that is ready to support a variety of enterprise technologies including new optimized cloud solutions that use Supermicro's Resource-Saving server and storage systems".

Azure Red Hat OpenShift combines the innovation of enterprise Kubernetes with the worlds leading enterprise Linux platform, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, running on the scale and power of Azure. The combination of Red Hat and NVIDIA technologies enables applications to more efficiently tap into the raw computational power needed to run resource-intensive workloads and scale them across hybrid environments.

The company also announced that MemSQL has achieved Red Hat OpenShift Operator Certification.

The OpenShift Operator Certification provides additional validation for customers running ROBIN Storage with Red Hat OpenShift to have a more seamless experience when onboarding enterprise-class stateful workloads. The service is added into customers existing Azure bill, further streamlining the user experience. "Trilio's support of Red Hat Hyperconverged Infrastructure for Virtualization offers customers a data protection solution that can support their architecture and data protection requirements". This allows for accelerated development of event-driven, serverless functions across hybrid cloud and on-premises with Red Hat OpenShift. Jointly supported by both companies, IT organizations can have greater confidence in adopting hybrid cloud innovation that meets the requirements of mission-critical workloads in production. "Inclusion in the Red Hat Container Catalog enables forward-thinking users to more easily access and evaluate our innovative distributed SQL database for the long-term success of their digital transformation initiatives", said Joe Leslie, Senior Product Manager, NuoDB.

To provide a more flexible deployment footprint while still maintaining enhanced security and stability, OpenShift 4 introduces Red Hat Enterprise Linux CoreOS, an OpenShift-specific embedded variant of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
