RED HAT AND NVIDIA COLLABORATE ON OPENSHIFT 4.10

0

Red Hat OpenShift 4.10 brings new features and NVIDIA AI Enterprise 2.0 certification. This should help to make the development of intelligent applications more efficient and to drive innovation.

Red Hat has completed certification using the OpenShift 4.10 platform with NVIDIA AI Enterprise 2.0. This should help companies reliably roll out, manage and scale AI workloads.

According to Gartner’s forecasts, global sales of AI software are expected to reach $62.5 billion this year – an increase of 21.3 per cent compared to 2021. Suppose companies want to integrate AI and machine learning into their cloud-native applications. In that case, they need an agile, flexible and scalable platform to develop and deploy machine learning models and intelligent applications. Red Hat OpenShift lays the foundation for this, and the new version makes it even easier to add AI workloads to the industry-leading Kubernetes platform.

Adopt AI innovations

As AI transforms enterprise operations and business models, running the AI ​​infrastructure can be complex, time-consuming, and resource-consuming. To speed up all related processes, Red Hat OpenShift is now certified for use with NVIDIA AI Enterprise 2.0. It is a cloud-native end-to-end platform with AI and analytics software running on NVIDIA-certified off-the-shelf systems. Optimized for Red Hat OpenShift, the integrated platform allows data scientists and developers to train their models faster, quickly build them into applications, and deploy them at scale.

Businesses can now deploy Red Hat OpenShift on NVIDIA-certified systems with NVIDIA Enterprise AI or, as previously supported, NVIDIA DGX A100, a high-performance, a general-purpose system for AI workloads. This enables them to consolidate the MLOps lifecycle, including data engineering, analytics, training, software development, and decision-making, onto a unified and easy-to-deploy AI infrastructure. In addition, Red Hat OpenShift’s built-in DevOps and GitOps capabilities further accelerate the delivery of AI-powered applications as part of continuous delivery.

With NVIDIA AI Enterprise on Red Hat OpenShift, Red Hat adds NVIDIA GPU support previously announced for OpenShift Data Science.

Broader cloud and hardware architecture support

Red Hat OpenShift 4.10 expands the platform to support a wide range of cloud-native workloads in the open hybrid cloud, enabling enterprises to run their AI and machine learning workloads in diverse environments. The latest version of OpenShift supports more public clouds and hardware architectures, so companies can make their development as consistent and straightforward as possible and have the flexibility to decide where applications run.

Key new features and capabilities to accelerate the adoption of AI and machine learning workloads include:

IPI support (Installer Provisioned Infrastructure) for Azure Stack Hub 

As a technology preview – for Alibaba Cloud and IBM Cloud. Users can thus use the IPI process for a fully automated, integrated, one-click installation of OpenShift 4.

Availability of Red Hat OpenShift on NVIDIA LaunchPad. 

NVIDIA LaunchPad offers free access to curated labs for IT and AI professionals leveraging NVIDIA-accelerated systems and NVIDIA software. Organizations can gain hands-on experience configuring, optimizing, and orchestrating resources for AI and data science workloads using NVIDIA AI Enterprise and Red Hat OpenShift.

Better compliance with modern

Managing diverse, modern workloads can place additional demands on governance. To help organizations with their regulatory compliance programs, Red Hat OpenShift 4.10 brings three new compliance profiles. These make it possible to check a cluster for compliance and fix the detected problems. The three new profiles include:

Payment Card Industry Security Standard (PCI DSS) –

a set of security standards that helps companies reliably accept, process, store and transmit credit card information

North American Electric Reliability Corporation Critical Infrastructure Protection (NERC CIP)  

The “Moderate” level of the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) sets cloud security standards for US federal agencies when handling controlled, unclassified information.

Additionally, with Red Hat OpenShift 4.10, sandboxed containers are now generally available. These containers provide an additional optional layer of protection for isolating workloads with stringent application-level security requirements. Other improvements make it easier to install disconnected or air-gap OpenShift clusters. This makes it easier for organizations to manage mirrored OpenShift images and keep them up-to-date as if they were in a connected group.

Availability

Red Hat OpenShift 4.10 and NVIDIA Enterprise AI on Red Hat OpenShift are now generally available.

Joe Fernandes, vice president and general manager, Platforms Business Group, Red Hat, said,

“Enterprises are turning to intelligent applications powered by AI and machine learning to improve strategic decisions and gain a competitive advantage. According to Red Hat, containers and Kubernetes are the keys to accelerating the lifecycle of these new applications. Red Hat OpenShift provides the flexibility, portability, and scalability to scale, test, and deploy machine learning models and integrates DevOps capabilities for better collaboration between data scientists and software developers. Through our cooperation with NVIDIA, we are helping companies to introduce a wide range of AI applications more easily and quickly.”

Eddie Ramirez, Vice President, Infrastructure Line of Business, Arm, emphasizes: “AI has the potential to shape our technological future, but requires more diverse and specialized computing solutions combined with the best possible user experience for developers. By adding Arm support to OpenShift, Red Hat gives developers exciting new choices for processing AI workloads and helps unlock the benefits of powerful, cost-effective Arm-based processors in hybrid cloud environments.”

Justin Boitano, Vice President, Accelerated and Edge Computing, NVIDIA, adds: “Enterprises are using AI exponentially, transforming how they do business with unprecedented levels of automation and efficiency. By certifying NVIDIA AI Enterprise on Red Hat OpenShift, organizations now have the ultimate AI software suite bundled with the leading enterprise Kubernetes platform.”

DEVELOPERS OFTEN DON’T PAY ENOUGH ATTENTION TO SECURITY IN THE CLOUD. THEREFORE, NUMEROUS CLOUD DATABASES ARE VULNERABLE.
