Red Hat puts on its Fedora (22) for Cloud innovation

The Fedora Project has developed the Fedora 22 with enhancements to its support for Linux and Docker.

The community driven open source project is sponsored by Red Hat and offers the Fedora Cloud, Fedora Server and Fedora Workstation.

The enhancements to the solution should improve the usability and flexibility with Linux container deployments that help to deliver open-source innovation.

As part of the Linux improvement an updated package manager for RPB based distributions has been added.

Within the cloud enhancements the Atomic Host will now include the Atomic command, which provides an entry point for managing hosts and containers.

Fedora has added to its server by providing support for the Database Server Role based on PostgreSQL. The server edition will also default to the XFS file system in order to provide faster crash recovery.

Improvements have been made to its Workstation with bug notifications and GNOME’s desktop themes which have been refined to improve usability.

Matthew Miller, Fedora Project Leader, said: "Fedora 22 continues the great groundwork laid by Fedora 21 and the initiative, delivering three unique editions of Fedora 22 while retaining the commitment to open source innovation for which Fedora is known."

"From the usability and developer enhancements in Fedora 22 Workstation to the expansion of Linux container and Docker support within Fedora 22 Cloud, Fedora remains a leader within the Linux vanguard, answering user needs above and beyond the desktop."
