Red Hat Brings Enterprise Linux to IBM z15 and LinuxONE III Single Frame Systems

Red Hat, an IBM company, has announced Red Hat Enterprise Linux support for the IBM z15 and LinuxONE III single frame solutions,extending its commitment to customer choice.

According to Red Hat, building upon the features of z15 and LinuxONE III multiframe solutions, the new air-cooled platforms extend the benefits of IBM’s hardware technologies to a broader user base while continuing to offer supported configurations to enterprises seeking to use RHEL on these new platforms.

The announcement was made in a Red Hat blog post.

With RHEL as the foundation for enterprise computing on single frame IBM z15 and LinuxONE III platforms, organizations will also be able to take advantage of Red Hat OpenShift, an enterprise Kubernetes platform. 

According to the company, Red Hat OpenShift on z15 and LinuxONE III bring cloud-native infrastructure and developer tools to IBM’s hardware platforms, making it easier to pair traditional bare-metal workloads with next-generation, containerized applications. These benefits apply across single frame and multiframe z15 and LinuxONE III deployments, providing a transition to the hybrid cloud.

Red Hat also says that single frame z15 can benefit from IT automation and DevOps best practices with Red Hat Ansible Certified Content for IBM Z. This is because, with Ansible, applications running on IBM Z—as well as those running on other platforms or infrastructure—can be automated from a central place, helping to make enterprise IT more efficient.
