Fedora Atomic Host to Become Fedora CoreOS After Red Hat’s Acquisition of CoreOS

In January 2018, Red Hat Inc., which is currently world’s leading provider of open source solutions, announced that it acquired the CoreOS Inc. company for US $250 million. Some of you many know CoreOS as the CoreOS Linux operating system that later changed its name to Container Linux by CoreOS. CoreOS was also known for the Quay Enterprise container registry and Tectonic for Kubernetes, two technologies used in container infrastructures. After it promised that it won’t discontinue CoreOS as we know it, Red Hat now announces that its plans to move the maintenance of CoreOS under the Fedora Project umbrella.
