Red Hat has announced the release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 9.3, introducing new features to enhance developer experience, security, and container capabilities. Red Hat aims for RHEL 9.3 to serve as the foundation for the growing trend of container and cloud-native computing, which is expected to reach a market value of $5.57 billion by 2027.
Specifically for containers, RHEL 9.3 integrates the Podman tool to streamline system operations. It also includes new programming languages and tools, updated toolsets and compilers, and enhancements to the Go programming language. Security updates focus on containers and edge computing, with a new solution called Keylime for remote boot attestation and runtime integrity measurement.
RHEL 9.3 also comes with a kernel update, offering support for thin provisioned logical System Roles, as well as full support for Stratis, a Linux storage system designed to simplify storage administration and management for both novice and experienced users.
Overall, RHEL 9.3 represents a significant step forward in providing a secure, stable, and developer-friendly platform for enterprise applications.
