Red Hat Enterprise Linux Atomic Host is a branch of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating system which is a specially created version of the main OS that has a very small footprint and is carefully designed to run containerized workloads.

“For the past two years, Red Hat has been promoting the concept of super-privileged containers (SPCs) to handle the ‘tools and agents’ use case,” says Scott McCarty. “We still believe this is an ideal approach for solving these use cases in a containerized environment. That said, there are plenty of situations where it would be nice to simply add an rpm, or even a handful, to Atomic Host.”

That said, there are plenty of situations where it would be nice to simply add an rpm, or even a handful, to Atomic Host. Customers have been asking to do this, and they are happy to announce that it is now possible.
