Red Hat today announced that .NET Core is now available on Red Hat Enterprise Linux and OpenShift via certified containers and it is also supported by Red Hat and extended via the integrated hybrid support partnership between Microsoft and Red Hat. This makes Red Hat the only commercial Linux distribution to feature full, enterprise-grade support for .NET, opening up platform choice for enterprises seeking to use .NET on a flexible Linux and container-based environments.
Why this is a big deal?
The ability to follow a microservices-based approach, where some components are built with .NET and others with Java, but all can run on a common, supported platform in Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat OpenShift.
New .NET Core workloads can now be easily moved from a Windows Server environment to Red Hat Enterprise Linux, even if development was primarily done via Windows.
A heterogeneous datacenter, where the underlying infrastructure is capable of running .NET applications without having to rely solely on Windows Server.
Access to many of the popular development frameworks such as ..NET, Java, Ruby and Python from within OpenShift
