Friday, November 10, 2023
During KubeCon 2023, Red Hat unveiled several significant updates, including the official release of Red Hat Device Edge and Red Hat OpenShift 4.14, the introduction of freshly certified plug-ins for the Backstage community, and the presentation of Red Hat's strategic outlook on AI and automation.
At KubeCon 2023 Red Hat made a number of announcements for its hybrid cloud portfolio, including the general availability of Red Hat Device Edge and Red Hat OpenShift 4.14; new certified plug-ins for the Backstage community; and Red Hat’s vision for AI and automation.
Red Hat Device Edge is now generally available
Red Hat Device Edge aggregates an enterprise-ready and supported distribution of the Red Hat-led open-source community project MicroShift (a lightweight Kubernetes project built from the edge capabilities of Red Hat OpenShift) along with an edge-optimized operating system built from Red Hat Enterprise Linux. With general availability, Red Hat Device Edge now also includes Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform for more consistent Day 1 and Day 2 management of hundreds to thousands of sites and devices. Customers and partners including ABB, Lockheed Martin, Intel, Guise.AI, and more are already working with Red Hat on implementations.
The power of AI is open - Red Hat's AI vision
To survive and advance in today’s economic and technological climate, business leaders must prioritize implementing AI in a strategic, holistic, and timely manner. Enterprises have to consider how AI can help solve complex challenges across every area of their business–specifically those involving security and privacy. If organizations want to equip themselves to use AI effectively, they must be able to combine technologies to operationalize their AI use cases from idea to production, use AI to drive agility and efficiency within existing teams, tools, and processes, and meet standards just as they do with other business applications. Combining the collaborative
nature of open source with the power of AI enables Red Hat to help enterprises solve the world’s problems more effectively and quickly than many would have thought possible before the emergence of AI.

Red Hat simplifies and expands application development with new capabilities in Red Hat OpenShift
Red Hat OpenShift 4.14 is designed to help further simplify infrastructure complexities and application development for development, operations, and security teams. Red Hat OpenShift 4.14 includes the general availability of hosted control planes for Red Hat OpenShift on bare metal and Red Hat OpenShift Virtualization, increased flexibility and options for how and where organizations run OpenShift, and new security enhancements to help users mitigate risks and better meet compliance requirements.
Red Hat expands contribution to the backstage project with new plug-ins
Red Hat donates new back-end plugins to the Backstage community, expanding the capabilities available to developers through the platform and making it easier for them to integrate the technologies into their existing pipelines. The contribution builds on the list of plug-ins already donated to the community by Red Hat and reinforces Red Hat's commitment to helping users get the most out of their Backstage implementations.
